Hi,

Now I am repackaging one application. It's an Install Shield application. So I created .iss file(response file) for installing and also for uninstalling.
The problem is name if both the install and uninstall file will be setup.iss.

So while creting folder structure I include the .iss file for installing inside the package where the .exe file is locating. And create one folder uninstall and copy paste all the files in the application to the uninstall folder and there I keep the .iss file for uninstalling. And atlast both silent installation an uninstallation worked using the command line "Q:\Application\ABC\v1.0.0.0\Setup.exe" \s for installing and "Q:\Application\ABC\v1.0.0.0\uninstall\Setup.iss for uninstalling" /s. But the problem is deallocation is not working.

Here I am including the structure of my .ini file.

[Package]
Description=ABC
Version=2.1
OS=5.WS
EXEFile=Setup.exe
AddCommand= /s
UninstallExeFile= /f1\uninstall\Setup.exe
UninstallCommand= /f1\uninstall\setup.iss /s

Can you please correct it if there is any mistakes.

Thanks,

I don't know of any mistakes but I'd never rely on the iss file setup to install an app. That's why Wise and MSI's were invented - you don't have to deal with shoddy ISS files and their unreliability.
