Hi !

I must uninstall a install shield 6 package.

The uninstall string in the registry look like this:

RunDll32 C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\INSTAL~1\engine\6\INTEL3~1\Ctor.dll,LaunchSetup "C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{F274FAC9-B374-41BD-AB0C-DC90B36B7CCC}\Setup.exe" -l0x9 ARP

I have tried the folowing:

RunDll32 C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\INSTAL~1\engine\6\INTEL3~1\Ctor.dll,LaunchSetup "C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{F274FAC9-B374-41BD-AB0C-DC90B36B7CCC}\Setup.exe" -l0x9 ARP -r

reinstall the application

and then:

RunDll32 C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\INSTAL~1\engine\6\INTEL3~1\Ctor.dll,LaunchSetup "C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{F274FAC9-B374-41BD-AB0C-DC90B36B7CCC}\Setup.exe" -l0x9 ARP -s -f1:"path to iss file"

without success


C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{F274FAC9-B374-41BD-AB0C-DC90B36B7CCC}\Setup.exe -s (with the ss file in the same directory)

wthout success

RunDll32 C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\INSTAL~1\engine\6\INTEL3~1\Ctor.dll,LaunchSetup "C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{F274FAC9-B374-41BD-AB0C-DC90B36B7CCC}\Setup.exe" -l0x9 ARP -uninst

then there are only 2 clicks to do (but 2 to much)

RunDll32 C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\INSTAL~1\engine\6\INTEL3~1\Ctor.dll,LaunchSetup "C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{F274FAC9-B374-41BD-AB0C-DC90B36B7CCC}\Setup.exe" -l0x9 ARP -a

without success

i have tried it with only -l009, and without.

what do i do wrong ?

thanks for helping

You can try to record a new setup.iss with the following command:
"C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{F274FAC9-B374-41BD-AB0C-DC90B36B7CCC}\Setup.exe" -r

Then try to remove the install with the following command:

"C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{F274FAC9-B374-41BD-AB0C-DC90B36B7CCC}\Setup.exe" -l0x9 -s -f1"pathtosetup.iss"

I do not think you need the : after f1. I just spent some time yesterday on that exact same problem, just with a different applicaiton.

with only -r, the app trys to reinstall.
I have tryed with -uninst -r, and then have tryed how you told me, but with the same effect as in my first post.
I have tryed t with -uninst -s -f1 file and with -l0x9 and without.

My problem is, that my customer wants to deinstal about 20 versions of old software (this software was installt manual by the users), and after this install the new version.
