--- Comment #4 from Rainer Meier <r.meier at wpkg.org> ---
OK, if you still don't see the entry even after a while but you can see it from
your user account and it's in HKLM tree of the registry then there are two

- you are running WPKG with 32-bit cscript.exe
- the process running WPKG does not have read permissions on the uninstall key

The first option is quite a common one. If WPKG is executed from 32-bit
environment (e.g. 32-bit WPKG client or any other 32-bit launcher) then Windows
will launch 32-bit cscript.exe. As a result wpkg.js will not be able to read
the 64-bit uninstall entries!

If you are unsure whether you run WPKG from a 32-bit or 64-bit process try
launching wrapper.js (included in WPKG distribution) instead of wpkg.js
directly. It will assure WPKG is run from 64-bit csript.exe.

You can also try to run wpkg via %SystemRoot%\sysnative\cscript.exe.
