Hi,

I'm trying to uninstall Geomagic 12 using below command
START /WAIT "" MSIEXEC.EXE /X {9D3610DE-93DA-4FF8-9444-A19D9D6EAA4D} REBOOT=ReallySuppress /qn
but still one window comes with message
"they want to erase all data and configuration directories" with buttons YES & NO
I want to uninstall it silently.

Please Advice.

Thanks,
Abhishek

It seems like this dialog comes from a custom action. You should let msiexec write a log file with the following parameter /l*vx <path> and as soon
as the message box appears don't click anything and open up the log file. The last line will tell you which action launches the msg box.
When you've got the name of the ca you open up Orca and either remove the ca from the CustomAction table or you give it a never-to-meet condition
in the InstallExecute table like "...AND 1=2". Save everything as a transform and use it for your uninstallation.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I am not sure you can specify a transfom at uninstall. As in, I don't think this would work.
msiexec.exe /x {guid} TRANSFORMS=file.mst /qn

you're right. no transform allowed when uninstalling.

I think it's "allowed" - in that MSIExec would swallow it - it's simply that it would be ignored.

If the msi is installed with a transform where the ca is "commented" out then the uninstallation should also ignore the ca right?

I think when hes sure, that the ca only does show a msg box then it should also be ok to edit the msi directly to change the cas condition.
