Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't CRM contained in an MSI? If it is - and I'd be *very* surprised if it wasn't - you would just add the regular silent switch '/qn' to the command line arguments.

Hi there,

Thank you very much for responding.

There is a msi file but when i try to uninstall with the following command:
msiexec.exe /x{539D63C6-4EF4-4B9E-9926-85053F119171} /qb
The installation proccess is starting and then the following dialog appears:

Offcourse i read the help file and found the followin switches:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd979402.aspx
Its seems that the switches is for offline installation and i use Online installation

When i tries the switches above, i get the Help dialog of windows installer.
setupclient.exe /x
Looks like something is wrong with the command.

Thank you for helping.

By sheer chance, I stumbled upon an instance of the CRM MSI at the client I'm currently working for.

Nothing jumps out at me so I think the best of action for you is to run the install via your authoring tool's debugger. When you get to teh dialog in question, I'd almost guarantee that execution will be stopped at a Custom Action. You can then configure your package to not run this CA by conditioning it out.

I've another GUID for CRM 4.0 (.7333.145), but the passive uninstallation works and it's online installation.

Msiexec.exe /Passive /X{60E868C4-97FA-48AF-94F8-3B41425DA400}

(I delete this file before uninstallation C:\Program Files\MSCRM\Client\ConfigWizard\CrmForOutlookInstaller.exe)

But have you installed with the MSI or did you use setupclient.exe?
Perhaps you need to uninstall with setupclient.exe if you installed with it?
