I'm trying to run a silent uninstall, I copied the uninstall string from HKLM\Software...\Uninstall which is...

C:\WINDOWS\IsUninst.exe -f"C:\Program Files\Intel\Shiva VPN Client\Uninst.isu" -c"C:\Program Files\Intel\Shiva VPN Client\snetcfg.dll"

what commands should I use to run this as silent, since the above pops up with a box..

Many thanks


Zeno

Hi Zeno

Unfortunately I can't tell you how you get this uninstallation done silently.
However, have you heard of AutoIt before?
I know this is a little quick and dirty but we use it sometimes to get around issues like this.
With AutoIt you can create a very simple self executing script with confirms your dialog boxes as you want it to.
Get more infos here: http://www.autoitscript.com/
Or even send me a screen shot of the dialog box and I create and send you such a script.

or a winbatch (if you have one sitting somewhere =)
use a code like :
______________________________
IntControl (1002,0,0,0,0)

Run("<your unsinstall command line")

if WinWaitExist("<the name of the dialog box that pops out", 300)==@True then
SendKey("{ENTER}")
end if

What I've managed to do is run this...

C:\WINDOWS\IsUninst.exe -f"C:\Program Files\Intel\Shiva VPN Client\Uninst.isu"

which uninstalls the program, but it won't uninstall/remove the "C:\Program Files\Intel\Shiva VPN Client\snetcfg.dll" dll file which leaves two LAN Adapters remaining on the computer....

This software is used of remote VPN access so it somehow installs 2 VPN network adapters that's done by the snetcfg.dll fike

Hi Zeno:

The command line for creating an .iss file for uninstall is as follows:

X:\-----------\setup.exe -r -f1 X:\------\unstall.iss

keep ur setup.exe and unstall.iss in same directory.
once the .iss file is created then run the unstall with silent command line options.
