Hello to all,

I am trying to build a silent uninstall for
Check Point Provider-1 NGX_vR65

tried the following line:
"C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{A45F0D48-C5B0-4C6C-A3F5-119636490290}\setup.exe" -l0x9 installed

but this one is not silent.

Tried with /s switch

"C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{A45F0D48-C5B0-4C6C-A3F5-119636490290}\setup.exe" /s -l0x9 installed

nothing happened.
Also tried with log file, but no log file was create.

Anyone can help please?

Hi Amir,

[font="times new roman"]I dont know much about the application you are currently working on Check Point Provider-1 NGX_vR65. However can you tell me whether the application is a setup capture or a vendor supplied msi file?
One more thing, does the package contain InstallShield information and if yes are you sure you require it?

Thank you for answering.
No msi this time. Only setup that was supplied by the company.
What did you mean by "does the package contain InstallShield information" ?
Do you mean if iss files were attached to the installaion?

I myself created the iss file (by using /r) . But seems that it is only working when installing.
When i am trying to uninstall with reference to the same file, nothing happen.

2 files where attached the installation: install.iss & uninst.iss - both of them did not work when i used them. (Only when i created myself the iss file).

I think i will go a head and will build a manuall simple removal.

Thanks again
Amir :)

This method usually works for me :_

On a machine where the product is currently installed :

1) Using REGEDIT, locate the uninstall command for the product (in your case, Check Point Provider-1 NGX_vR65) in the registry - it should be somewhere in a subkey of

[font="courier new"]HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

- and once you find it, copy the command to the clipboard

2) From either a command box, or from Start .. Run, paste in the command you copied at 1) and append the -r (or /r) qualifier to this, then run the command.

3) Proceed through the uninstallation manually and, at the end you should hopefully have created an uninstallation silent script. It will initially be named [font="courier new"]setup.iss and can be found in the Windows folder.

4) I would suggest renaming this file to (say) uninst.iss and move it to another folder rather than the Windows folder.

5) Now you have the silent uninstallation response file, this can be used with future uninstallations on other machines using the following command :

<uninstall_command_taken_from_registry_at_step_1> -s -f1"<Path to uninst.iss>"
