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?

Thanks,

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...
