Hi,

I need to create silent uninstall package for few software using Wise Package Studio. I know to create installer package and use the same to uninstall it. But if the software that are already installed, then a silent uninstall package can be created to uninstall them..

I have large number of PC and i want a single silent uninstaller.

Hope somebody could help me..

Regards
Rahul

Rahul - Are they MSI built? If so, can you not use "msiexec /x {Product Code} /qb-" or qn command to uninstall silently?

The setup used to create those package should have silent uninstallation commands. Try /S or /q or /x or /n etc

Why not capture the uninstallation?

Also, in the final analysis, applications are just a bunch of files and/or registry data so your uninstallation package could be built using the RemoveFile and RemoveRegistry tables.

SetupCapture doesn't have any configuration settings per se, other than the default ones used when intially setting it up, like file/folder exclusions.

As for what gets deleted, it's your job as a packager to decide what you will allow to be deleted.
