Question : How do I silently uninstall vSphere Client?

I have already found the command I need to remotely deploy vSphere client. We are transitioning to 4.1 and I want to uninstall version 4.0 of the client prior to installing the new version. The problem is that I cannot find the command needed to remotely remove it. I am running PSExec so that I can do a batch uninstall. So what is the command line to remove it?

start /wait MsiExec.exe /X{C40698F9-A861-4531-9F8C-FA7F8961375B} /quiet /qn
to remove the client

start /wait MsiExec.exe /X{9BC51C0F-DA8E-4370-9997-899B3435A647} /quiet /qn
to remove host update utility

You may want to check the guids - they were the same for the two machines I looked at, but can't ever tell with guids. They are in the registry uninstall information:

For 32 bit
hklm/software/microsoft/windows/currentversion/uninstall  then search for vsphere

For 64 bit
hklm/software/wow6432node/microsoft/windows/currentversion/uninstall  then search for vsphere

Good Luck
