I am working on installshield MSI project using IS10.5 professional.
I am trying to remove ( uninstall ) application from the shortcut created during the installation[ B](strat-program-Applicatoin name-/repair or Remove application)[/B] . There is some GUI sequence is while removal(uninstall) . But the GUI is not displyed if i try to uninstall from the shortcut.

The Arguments in the shortcut is given below.
Repair/Remove shorcut

Arguments : /x {Product code}

If i try to remove it form the control panel/add remove programs
then the uninstallation shows all the required GUI sequence before uninstallation. Then what is wrong with short cut menu?

In Addition to this : With the Arguments : /I {Product code} /qf
if tryto remove from shortcut

windows installer pops up the Dialog showing " 1:" message and abort. (see the attachment)

as per the Help /qf is used for FULL GUI option. i dont know how to do this? am i doing anything wrong ?
please help me.

Thanks ,
