We are going to rollout Corel Draw 12 soon and need to uninstall previous versions before doing so. I have versions 8 through 10 installed on different computer through out the company. Corel support was useless!

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

I think we need a few more details before you get a useful answer.

How are you deploying? GPO, Altiris ,SMS etc.

How were the other versions deployed? repackaged as msi or sms or installed by hand with CD etc.

The past versions were installed by hand from a CD or network share. Corel Draw version 12 will be rolled out with SMS utilizing the Windows Installer to make it unattended.

The primary version I would like to uninstall is version 8. This version supplies a uninst32.exe and what looks like an uninstall script: setup.log. I am hoping I can make this process unattended.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

You may be able to script the uninstall using SMS Installer.

Do a capture of the version 8 installation on a clean machine and that will give you a baseline to work with. You can use SMS Installer or Winstall to do that.
Then script the removal of the baseline and add it as a custom action within your Corel Draw 12 installation.

We have Wise Package Studio, and I was going to install coreldraw 8 and have Wise watch the installation. Then I could use unwise.exe to uninstall it.

I am just concerned with this process, what do you think.

Thanks

I have never used unwise.exe before but I have used a CA to unistall files prior to an installation so it may work.
