msiexec is a command prompt software that installs an msi program.

But I have found that you can install an msi file from the command line by just typing in the name of the msi file on the command line.

But in order to uninstall the msi file, it seems you have to call the msiexec program and give it an /x or /uninstall.

Does anyone know how I can uninstall and msi from the command line without using the msiexec routine?

Unless msiexec is deleted then all windows computers that you can install .msi files on will have the msiexec command on them. So there is no need for an alternative.

Windows just silently uses the msiexec program when you run .msi files directly.
