hi,

Does anyone know how to perform a silent uninstall of Jinitiator 1.3.1.22? The application is not a MSI, there is no silent switch.

However i tried creating setup.iss and uninstall using command line "C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{CAFECAFE-0013-0001-0122-ABCDEFABCDEF}\Setup.exe" -uninst -s -f1"C:\Temp\setup.iss". Still UI dialog appears.

Are you sure you are using an uninstall response script and not the original install response script ? If you are sure, then the rest of my reply does not apply, but if not, you will need to record an uninstall response script as follows :

On a test machine with Jinitiator 1.3.1.22 already installed, run a standard interactive uninstall using the following command

"C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{CAFECAFE-0013-0001-0122-ABCDEFABCDEF}\Setup.exe" -uninst -r

Inspect the %Windir% folder and a fresh setup.iss file should have been created, this is the Uninstall response script.

I normally rename this file to "uninstall.iss" at this stage. On a second test machine with Jinitiator 1.3.1.22 already installed, copy the uninstall.iss response file generated earlier to a suitable folder (eg C:\Temp).

Now run the command

"C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{CAFECAFE-0013-0001-0122-ABCDEFABCDEF}\Setup.exe" -uninst -s -f1"C:\Temp\uninst.iss"

Then your alternatives are to repackage this to an MSI, or (less preferably) consider a WinBatch or AutoIt script to respond to the prompts automatically.

We cannot capture the application. VBScript to respond to these prompts works fine when run through command line. When i deploy through SCCM the uninstallation is getting failed. Log files also doesnot contain useful info.

Re-package the application.
