Hi folks

I need help with a particular problem. I have an app I am trying to package called autobahn which came as a legacy exe.

I repackaged it into a *.msi and it installs and runs perfectly. No problems here.

The trouble is when I run the uninstall batch file which is a simple msiexec /x {PRODUCTCODE} /QN it seems to do a repair/reinstall instead of a remove.

I have tried creating a generic Productcode wising MS ORCA but this had no change.

Obviously it doesnt want the productcode listed in the MSI in order to uninstall, what else I can try? Would there be any other reg key it would need?

Does it uninstall if you specify the MSI name in your uninstall command line?

msiexec /x <path and name of MSI> /qn

e.g. - msiexec /x "c:\myfiles\mymsi.msi" /qn

What tool did you use to create the MSI?
Have you done anything else to the package that could be causing issue - wrongly conditioned CA for example?

Yes it works with the msi name, and strangely enough it works with the productcode as well now.

(My tools are installshield and ms orca).

I don't get why it works all of the sudden, it sure as hell didn't yesterday. Gremelins I guess.

My thanks for your help...
