Any help appreciated with this one.

I have my silent install ready for GoogleSketchUp 8.

However, I want to have the install check for any previous versions first and remove silently if present so I call a batch file

rem Uninstall old versions
@echo off
echo Remove old versions of Google Sketchup
echo Remove Google Sketchup Version 6
"C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{98736A65-3C79-49EC-B7E9-A3C77774B0E6}\setup.exe"
echo Uninstall Complete

This just brings up the modify or remove window for SketchUp 6 - click next to uninstall. Anyway to make this silent? It was a exe install originally so I wont be able to use any of the MSI uninstall strings.

ok so I can also use

"C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{98736A65-3C79-49EC-B7E9-A3C77774B0E6}\setup.exe" /uninstall

This comes up with are you sure you want to uninstall sketchup6 'yes' or 'no'.

As is often the case, the question has been asked before.

More importantly, the 'Package KB' tells us that the EXE extracts and executes an MSI. You can obviously use the silent switches for MSIEXEC.EXE for that.
