      Description

      WinExeBundler now creates an exe installer by wrapping the msi installer with some native code to extract and launch it.

      It is needed to have a way to uninstall using some command line arguments that cause the embedded msi to be run such as:
      "msiexec /passive /x <installer.msi>"

      with the previous exe Inno Setup code we included an "unins000.exe" that could be run to uninstall.
      we don't need a seperate installer but the wrapper installer should have new options implemented to achieve the same purpose.
