Hey can someone help me out here?  I am trying to do a command line for removing MS SharePoint Designer 2013, yet everything I do seems to fail.   I first ran the following:
MsiExec.exe /X{90150000-0017-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE} /qb
This does nothing,  I see Msiexec.exe and setup.exe show up in the processes list, but setup will close out, and SPD never gets removed.

I have also ran:
setup.exe /uninstall {90150000-0017-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE}
setup.exe /uninstall 90150000-0017-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE

Both return the following:
This product installation has been corrupted.  run setup again from the CD, DVD, or other original installation source.
So I am at a loss.

Oh and before some of you start with the LMGTFY stuff, yes I have already ran extensive searches on this (Google, Bing, Teched, etc) no luck.

You need to provide a [ProductID] to the setup.exe / uninstall command not the ProductCode GUID - the terminology is a bit confusing as the ProductID in this case is not an MSI property, but can be found in the setup.xml file in the source media.

This is how it looks for English (US) SharePointDesigner 2007 (I don't have source for SharePointDesigner 2013 but I assume it is similar) :

In the folder SharePointDesigner.WW, you will find the file setup.xml, open it with an editor and locate the line beginning with <Setup Id=

the word in quotes immediately following <Setup Id= is the ProductID - for SharePointDesigner 2007 the ProductID is SharePointDesigner so I will assume it is correct also for SharePointDesigner 2013 - but do check to make sure !

so the command line for an uninstall of SharePointDesigner 2013 should now be

setup.exe /uninstall SharePointDesigner

If you want to uninstall silently then create a silent uninstall config.xml file named (say) silentuninst.xml in the same folder as setup.xml and add the following lines

<Configuration Product="SharePointDesigner">

 <Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />


so your silent uninstall command would now be

setup.exe /uninstall SharePointDesigner /config silentuninst.xml
