Description:
Multiple uninstall options if upgrade a pre-existing install in same directory

How to repeat:
Install Mysql 3.23.56 up then install a newer version 4.0.14 to upgrade old version.

Goto Control Panel in windows Add remove programs.

Notice multiple uninstall options for both versions even if installed into same directory

Suggested fix:
This should be cleaned up on upgrades to same directory.

Thank you for the bug report, this issue is a limitation of the current
installer version. A new installer is in the work and I am assiged Mark
for to analyze this behavior when the new installer will be introduced.

Closing this since the MySQL Installer for Windows has taken over from the old plain msi installers for MySQL on Windows.
