What is the difference between Regular and Silent uninstallation?

Thank you in advance for help,

The result is the same: the build is uninstalled. Regular uninstall shows a couple of pages with uninstalled build path and a question to delete user settings and caches.

Where can I find this uninstaller? You can choose to uninstall multiple versions?
Doesn't seem like the same one in "C:\Program Files (x86)\JetBrains\IntelliJ IDEA x.x.x\bin\Uninstall.exe"

It is one of pages shown by installer when you install a new build. Then it suggests to uninstall previous builds. Now the page has different UI.

Is there a way that I can uninstall previous versions with the silent deployment parameters?
Now I use ideaIU-14.1.3.exe /S , but this keeps the previous versions installed.

I had to run a custom setup like this for a simple IntelliJ deployment:

You could delete installed IDEA in silent mode as follows:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\JetBrains\IntelliJ IDEA 14.1\bin\uninstall.exe" /S

Just please make sure that you run the command with admin rights

Yes I use that command already. But I have to do this for EACH installed version of IntelliJ.
But thanks for the responds, I already figured the silent installers don't have many options :)

You could uninstall silently old(previous) version(s) during install of new version. See the image.

It is an interesting option, but I don't think there are silent install parameters available for this.

I would like to do what you do (in your screenshot) without using a wizard.

Yes. You are right. The option is not implemented separated from gui mode yet. I can just suggest you to create new issue for this case (youtrack.jetbrains.com).
