Blender 2.80 MSI leaving registry key behind on uninstall
Open, Needs Triage by DeveloperPublic


System Information
Operating system: Windows 10
Graphics card:

Blender Version
Broken: 2.80
Worked: (optional)

Short description of error
When uninstalling 2.80 MSI by running msiexec.exe /x {<ProductCode>}
it leaves the registry key HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{ProductCode}.
So the msi won't reinstall because it sees the key and interprets the app as already installed.
This also causes deployment through SCCM to fail when using the ProductCode as a detection method.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Install, uninstall, see the key
