After doing a full uninstall of all products using the installer, the connector java package is left behind.  It also is not displayed in the list of products to be uninstalled before the uninstall process is triggered.

This leads to an issue whereby the next time you try to run an install package, it recognizes the existence of the connector package and the installer won't go into the new install sequence displaying the license and allowing the user to do the various types of install.  It instead goes directly to the add product screen.  It is necessary to remove the connector package manually from add/remove programs before the installer will run properly again.  It is currently affecting all community packages.

How to repeat:
Install products using the community installer, including c/java
Then select uninstall all
After complete, examine the add remove programs app.  
C/java will still be present.
