HI

I'm trying to uninstall MS Project 2007 Standard German version silently.

I have tried
Msiexec /x {product code} /q - This keeps showing splash screen of the deinstall.

I don't want the user to see anything on the screen
I also tried the "setup.exe /uninstall" but keeps asking for product id I'm not sure what the correct command line is? (also tried setup.exe /uninstall {product code}) but no joy.

Any help appreciated

No replies?!?

The MSI.CHM file which is supplied with most packaging apps will detail the command line syntax for you. Indeed, those apps generally provide a tool which will *build* a command line for you. Anyway, use:

Msiexec /x {product code} /qn

I have tried msiexec /x {product code} /qn - But no joy - It still shows the deinstall splash screen.

I'd like the uninstall done silently without any dialog boxes appearing.

Any clues anybody.

What "splash screen"? The one which says "Are you sure you wish to uninstall..."? If it's not that one, could it by chance by a custom dialog which is launched by a Custom Action? It wouldn't be the first time I've seen that...

When you run uninstall a screen appears "Deinstallationstatus" showing the appliaction being deinstalled. Alougth no prompts are required the screen is visible to the user Is there anyway this can be suppressed.

Search the MSI for that word. I'm pretty convinced that there'll be a dialog with that text in, in which case you can alter the sequence or remove it completely. If not, the next most likely scenario is that a Custom Action is being called, probably by a function call to a custom DLL. If that's the case, you'll need to work around it.

Speaking of Uninstalls, my Project 2007 solution uninstall reboots after successfull uninstall. Is there a way to stop this? I have tried "Reboot=ReallySupress" but to no avail.

Having to package Office 2007 Professional several months ago, I discovered that the customization is totally different than the previous versions (XP, 2003 and 2000). The customization tool creates an .msp file (instead of a transform) for settings you have specified for the installation. I've tried to use direct windows installer commands to install or uninstall this product and they do not work. This link explains in further detail how to customize settings for Office 2007:

And there is also an article in the packages knowledgebase on this site explaining how to do a silent uninstall of the entire Office 2007 suite or just individual products:
