Greetings,

First post! Hope I don't make an arse of myself out of the gate [;)]

Can anyone share some knowledge about scripting an unattended installation of the Microsoft Firewall Client (2000)?

Google seems to turn up no useful documentation...but I freely admit that my lack of success could be an external keyboard driver problem [8|]

This file exists on the client...
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Firewall Client\setupbin\UNINST.EXE"
...but despite my best attempts at determining a silent uninstall switch, it continues to prompt for confirmation.

Any assistance will be very much appreciated.

Thanks,

Tim ==

UNINST.EXE is an older Installshield file. Chances are this applicaiton could have been installed with Installshield or you are calling a different UNINST.EXE.

Look at the following link for command lines: Here

UNINST.EXE -y -a might work.

You can also try to use AutoIT. http://www.autoitscript.com/AutoIt/downloads.php

Thanks, Tom!

After some more investigative work, I came up with this method:

MsiExec.exe /X {8C7A59A8-9ABE-459A-9A93-08C281A4A264} /qn
My lack of knowledge about package IDs makes me a little nervous. Under what circumstances might the package ID change?
