Reading uninstaller name

From what I've found here on the forum, this is a bit of a long shot, but I am looking for a way to read the actual name of the uninstaller exe.

I have a number of installers which add flight simulator scenery, and they can install to more than one simulator. To differentiate between different installations, I append the simulator version to the uninstaller filename. Currently to determine which simulator scenery needs to be uninstalled, I just compare the $INSTDIR with each of the installed locations from the registry. This has worked well, but now I want to be able to reuse a particular install for another simulator -- so if a customer has two different simulators, they will share the same scenery install. So just reading $INSTDIR won't show which simulator needs to be uninstalled, as they will be in the same location.

I'd like to read the name of the uninstaller, and check the suffix. Is there any way to do this?
