Thank you Frank, that's perfect.  I tried to set revision="1"  as an
environment variable in wpkg-start.bat so that once and while I can up
the number and have it re-check for my list of unwanted programs.  Too
bad aol doesn't have a silent uninstaller.  Guess there's always
autoit.  But the wpkg didn't like the variable.  It's no big deal I
just use revision="222" for all of them and find and replace when the
time comes.
