Windows 7: Command line for uninstall program(s)

Command line for uninstall program(s)

A year ago you guys posted this question. I am maybe too fresh for this topic, but I am interested in exact commands that are written for a silent uninstall. Here is what I tried but it did not work:
1. "Msiexec/uninstall MyApplication.exe/quiet" or "Msiexec/uninstall MyApplication.msi/Quiet". I hope you understood that I can install MyApplication either with an exe installer or with one msi.
2. "Msiexec/uninstall MyApplication.exe|MsiExec.exe /X{F9194EE7-83D4-4F8C-8AD4-94C628E15FAE}/quiet. In this command the MsiExec.exe /X{F9194EE7-83D4-4F8C-8AD4-94C628E15FAE} is what I found as uninstall string in registry for my application HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

For both cases I received two boxes if I want to uninstall the application then from window installer a message that the installation package can not be opened.
Am I doing anything wrong when I write the string command, please advise!
Thank you,
