we need to make unregisterDeploy to be more robust and clean up registry correctly in this case. (uninstall FX last, after all JRE is uninstalled)

JavaFX 8 is now part of JRE 8 so one can not uninstall JavaFX 8 runtime alone, but rather, has to uninstall JRE 8

EVALUATION we need to make sure unregisterDeploy clean up all deployment reg keys if it's uninstalling the last deploy on the system. e.g all of these keys below should be gone.

EVALUATION improve uninstall robustness
