Hi all

I am using a basic MSI project, using Installshield 2008. I would like to remove the following two programs before installing my product.

1) MSDE
2) SQL Server Compact Edition

I have product GUIDS for both should I need them. How do I make the installer remove these two files before proceeding to install my software?

I do not want to uninstall these manually. So if there is a way to uninstall using the same setup exe used to install our software, that is what I am after.

Any help will be appreciated.

So if there is a way to uninstall using the same setup exe used to install our software, that is what I am after.Is your set-up stub authored by you in, say, InstallScript? If so, you could just add a couple of calls to MSIExec.EXE and pass the relevant ProductCode for each:

....MSIExec /X {MSDE_ProductCode} [other switches, probably including at least /QBx]
....MSIExec /X {SQLServerCompactEdition_ProductCode} [other switches, probably including at least /QBx]
