Unable to Unregister com objects on uninstall

I have an install where Installshield registers com Objects.
I am on a new version that does not include all of the com objects as before so I am trying to uninstall them an unregister them on upgrade.
This looks Ok but when i try uninstall after an upgrade I get the error failed to register/unregister the files.
This is because they are not there or are not registered.
I think that this is because in the setup.ilg log all of the original files are listed as self registered.

How can I remove only these files or their component on upgrade so I do not have the uninstall issue?

The easiest solution might be to suppress the error message for these files. Using the combo boxes in the script file view, select Miscellaneous > OnSelfRegistrationError. This will add the default code for the error handler to your script. Modify it to ignore errors from the files in question.
