Hi

I would want to uninstall the previous version of the Check Point® VPN-1 SecuRemote/SecureClient R56 and Install the newer version of the same.

The scenario is as below:

1. The previous version was an setup.exe and was installed as it is on the user's machine across the Enterprise.Now we have to automatically uninstall the previous version and Install the newer version which is a .msi file.

2. After every Install it asks for a Reboot.

3. We have to copy the userc.c file into the database directory of the Checkpoint VPN.

4. We dont have any tool available to customise the .MSI.

Now my Questions are :

How can we Silently uninstall the previous package as the uninstall string doesnt have the silent switch available.

How do I incorporate the userc.c after the Installation and the Reboot is over.It should overwrite the file it installs.

Incase dont want to uninstall the previous version, the .msi gives me an option to upgrade the previous version.How can this be done automatically without the user interface?

If anybody have created a package for this, please help.

Thanks

- How can we Silently uninstall the previous package as the uninstall string doesnt have the silent switch available.
Ask the vendor? Post the string you have: it may point to a common set-up stub.

- How do I incorporate the userc.c after the Installation and the Reboot is over.It should overwrite the file it installs.
Prevent the version which is in the new MSi from being installed. The easiest option there is to separate it out into a discrete component (if it's not already one) and condition it out.

If the original wasn't originally MSI-based, you probably won't be able to easily upgrade.
