I've created a WinZip 15 package for my company. Everything is installing fine. but i noticed durning testing when uninstalling WinZip from add/remove programs it pops up a web page asking them why they're leaving. I would like to stop that. I figured before i got to far into it myself i would check on here, thinking someone may have tackled this before. Anything help is appericated.

Eric,

Try SHOW_WEBPAGE=0 on your command line.

This is noted in the package knowledge base article on this site for Winzip 15 with regard to removing 14.5 - so hopefully it still applies to removing 15.

Hope this helps,

Dunnpy

RATS! Kim beat me to it [:)]

Thanks for the replies. I guess my issue is a little different. I should have titled it different. I want it so if someone doesn't want winzip, when they go to add remove programs and remove it manualy it doesn't pop up. But now that i see that command im going to see if i can edit the reg during install to make it not pop up. does this make sense?

You can customise the MSI with an MST to modify the command line in the registry for uninstall - possibly as a CA at the end of the installation sequence due to how this information in written to the registry when installing the MSI.

The real question is why you are letting your users uninstall applications themselves - if they don't want it then your deployment tool should be utilised to initiate the uninstallation, next you'll be telling me that your users have admin rights [:D]

Yup, SHOW_WEBPAGE was listed in the MST. by default it was at 1. that was causeing the issue and editing it to 0 corrected my issue.
