You can also use the TweakUI tool from Microsoft Powertoys to remove unwanted ARP entries.

I can't ask the user close his ARP before he uninstall my application. And I can't use the third tool.

Also, why are creating so many fake entries in the first place?

My installer needs deal with an application like this: a Parent module with many Child modules.
All modules need an uninstall entry to handle the different choose of the user.
Because the installer built by IS6.3 just has one uninstall entry(I use this for the Parent Module), I must fake some entry for the Child modules.
what are you deleting and when?
I need delete some key in the [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\
when that key is not need any more.
the question is when I delete the key, the Add/Remove windows not reflesh immediately, so I want to reflesh it manually.

An alternative to having all of those fake child entries though would be to have the parent include a custom uninstall wizard that allowed the user to select it for removal and/or some subset of the children.
Hope it helps.

Therefore, I would highly recommend you also try deleting the corresponding <UninstallGUID> key from this area as well when removing one of these child modules.
Good luck then, hope it helps, and let me know how you make out.
