I have a software app that when you run the uninstall it shows as a InstallShield apps. Here is the command line that will trigger the uninstall from the registry.

C:\>RunDll32 C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\INSTAL~1\engine\6\INTEL3~1\Ctor.dll,LaunchSetup "C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{171F35E5-D5DA-4087-AA82-A97C03032045}\Setup.exe" -l0x9

And what I added on to the end of this was: /uninst /s

This brings up the Uninstall window. But for the life of me I can't get this to run in SILENT mode.

the /S should do that but it won't.

How do I run this in Silent mode? Or can you?

Thank you.

Hi mhsl808:

use answer file to make ur uninstallation silent.
use the following command line

"<path of setup.exe>\unstall.exe or setup.exe" -r -f1"<path of setup.exe>\uninstall.iss"

then run the command line to uninstall using the /S option.

Try this and pls let me know does it work??

Thanks but this did not seem to work. No .ISS file got created. The setup.iss file Did get created but when I used that to try and uninstall my program it does not do it in silent mode.
