U can use the same procedure as the install response file :)

So for the uninstall you will need the setup.exe (sources not targetdir) with the following switches:

setup.exe -w uninstall.ini
With that file you can deploy ur silent uninstall with the following switches:

setup.exe -r uninstall.ini

  • I also created and used a response ini file as described by COC_Christian (thank you).

    the command line I used to capture the ini was: "c:\Program Files\SAP BusinessObjects\setup.exe" -i product.businessobjectsclient-4.0-core-32 -w uninstall.ini

    the command line I used to use the ini was: "c:\Program Files\SAP BusinessObjects\setup.exe" -i product.businessobjectsclient-4.0-core-32 -r uninstall.ini
    • COC_christian and hks7mgt are both correct. This worked for me, thanks!

Please try "C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\setup.exe" -u product.xcelsius-4.0-core-32 -q

-q parameter to uninstall silently

I found how do do this in two steps, with help by referring to COC_Christian's notes.

  1. Open a command prompt and change directories to the original install source location.
  2. Type setup.exe -w uninstall.ini (or whatever you want the uninstall file to be named.
  3. This should bring up the GUI. Choose Uninstall and the prompts that follow.
  4. The product did not uninstall here, but created an uninstall.ini file in the directory above.
  5. The actual command now to uninstall is setup.exe -r uninstall.ini -q
This will uninstall all the SAP components. This did however leave two items behind.  Visual C++ 7.1 distributables and MSXML 4.0 SP2 Parser and SDK.  These may be benign, but others might be interested in what was left.

Cheers
