Automatically uninstall other editions of the same product

Uninstall other editions detected on the device that isn't the deployed application.

For example: if the customer deploys 7-Zip 64bit MSI application as required to a device, and the device has 7-Zip 32bit EXE or any other flavour of 7-Zip installed that isn't 64bit MSI, uninstall those apps before installing 7-Zip 64bit MSI.

Today for customers to achieve this, they depend on configuring supersedence, or the vendors installers to do this for them, or use custom pre-scripts.

    This is a must. For things like Adobe which has so many different versions. To be able to just run the install we want from PMPC and it remove all the other versions would be fantastic.
