Although it uses a setup.exe (InstallShield) installation it extracts and installs with an MSI. Therefore, you should be able to look in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall and look through the list of GUIDs and Installed applications there. When you get to the Visio one you should see a key called UninstallString there that will look like MsiExec.exe /I{SOME-GUID}. If you use the MsiExec.exe /x{SAME-GUID} /qn you should be able to force a silent uninstall of the application.

Hope that helps.

I just looked at one of my installs of Visio 2000 Pro and it didn't have the common UninstallString key but it did have the ModifyPath which has the same GUID that you would need to perform the uninstall.

It has over 30 individual msis so that is the problem. I am trying to use Vb or Batch files to do the job but I have no success so if any one have a batch or Vb script out there to remove and application I will appreciate it.

I wrote a wizard for the Admin Script Editor that builds a command line based on registry values and/or setup authoring tool command line offerings. Check it out at:

Should be just what you need. Install ASE (free trial) and then create a new script (batch if you like) then run the wizard (technically you should store the wizard in the "<installdir>\addins\wizards" folder).
