Hello,

We want make Autodesk AutoCAD Map 3D 2012 available on Software Center. I already made an Application for it with 2 batch files:
- Install.cmd
- Uninstall.cmd

The installation of AutoCAD Map 3D 2012 is working perfectly. Everything is silently installed.

I have some issues with the Uninstall.cmd. The CMD file contains the following information:


@echo off

Set DPused=%~DP0%

if not exist C:\LogFiles MD C:\Logfiles

echo Un-installing AUTOCAD_2012Map3D_x64 and the related components

start /wait MsiExec.exe /X{086F9A69-CD39-4893-A9FB-D3A0634CE3F7} /qn

start /wait MsiExec.exe /X{65420DC9-306E-4371-905F-F4DC3B418E52} /qn

start /wait MsiExec.exe /X{8F0837C2-EE09-4903-88F3-1976FE7FFF4E} /qn

start /wait "" "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD Map 3D 2012\Setup\Setup.exe" /Q /P {5783F2D7-A002-0409-0102-0060B0CE6BBA} /R ACADMAP /language en-US

echo Errorlevel: %errorlevel%


On the clients in Software Center I am able to click “Remove”. After that the uninstallation starts. AutoCAD got 3 components + AutoCAD 2012 app. After 1 minute Software Center displays “Uninstallation Failed!”. If I check Programs & Features the 3 components is uninstalled, but AutoCAD 2012 app isn’t. If I wait another 3-5 minutes the app is uninstalled. Everything is done correctly, but the Software Center doesn’t say so!

When I run the script locally, CMD will open and showing: “Un-installing AUTOCAD_2012Map3D_x64 and the related components”. After 1 minute, the prompt is closed. If I check Programs & Features, the 3 components are uninstalled. The AutoCAD app isn’t yet. Waiting another 3-5 minutes, and AutoCAD app is also uninstalled correctly.

The question is:

Why is my Software Center saying Uninstall Failed, but if you wait 3-5 minutes, it is correctly uninstalled? I used “start /wait” ?

I'd bet my last dollar that SETUP.EXE passes its parameters to MSIEXEC.EXE and then exits. Meanwhile, MSIEXEC is still busy uninstalling. Because MSIEXEC hasn't finished, SETUP sees a "bad" return value which gets passed up to SCCM.

Long & short? Use MSIEXEC to uninstall the main app.

Save time by emulating the SCCM deployment using PSExec and a VM with a saved snapshot of the installation.

  • Well i tried to uninstall AutoCAD with the MSIEXEC, but this didn't work. I used:

    start /wait MsiExec.exe /X{5783F2D7-A002-0409-0102-0060B0CE6BBA} /qn

    Why did this fail then?

I think its falling over on the last part, there is a lot going on when you remove AutoCAD. I have a feeling the setup.exe is is doing stuff in the background that you dont know about.

If you run
start /wait "" "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD Map 3D 2012\Setup\Setup.exe" /Q /P {5783F2D7-A002-0409-0102-0060B0CE6BBA} /R ACADMAP /language en-US
will it come back straight away with a exitcode:0 , even with a wait? I have a feeling the setup.exe fires a msi uninstall via a internal process. You can get the event logs if this is the case, you will see MSI Installer with events etc.

  • If i open a Command Prompt and do the following command:
    start /wait "" "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD Map 3D 2012\Setup\Setup.exe" /Q /P {5783F2D7-A002-0409-0102-0060B0CE6BBA} /R ACADMAP /language en-US

    It says:
    Un-installing AUTOCAD_2012Map3D_x64 and the related components

    After 1 minute the prompt is closed. AutoCAD still exist on the SCCM client but after waiting 4-5 minutes everything pops away..

    I didn't check the Event Viewer yet. First i need to fix an issue with our Task Sequence. After that i will re-image our test client and do an installation of AutoCAD. After that i will uninstall with the Software Center client en check out the AppEnforce log.

>Why did this fail then?
After my mobile Crystal Ball Repair guy has been, maybe I'll be able to tell you. Meanwhile, run that command line again but add verbose logging:

/L*v [path to and name of log file]

After it fails, find the text 'Return value 3' in the log. The half-dozen or so lines above that text will detail what failed.

  • Will try tomorrow. I am off work now ;)
  • The log gives an return value of 3010. Which means the laptop needs a soft reboot.

    The msiexec only deletes the AutoCAD 2012, but not the related components.

  • Hi,

    I tried to uninstall with the MSIEXEC and with the parameter /norestart but when the script starts uninstalling it kills Explorer.exe. I think it tries to reboot.

    Please how to fix...

You need to examine the MSI. It sounds like it's running a Custom Action which triggers a reboot.

  • In the logs you see that RESTARTMANAGER is trying to restart, but by the /norestart commando it quits this job. But before it is stopped, the Explorer.exe is killed. Why? I don't know.

    I already spend so much time to the uninstaller now. I chose to uninstall with the setup.exe with a timer of 720 seconds and its working perfectly...

    Case closed :)
