Hi

I have a silent unattended installation of Adobe Premiere Elements 7 packaged without the templates installation included. The templates are installed using a separate package after.

I used the "INSTALLTEMPLATES=0" argument to stop the templates installing but my problem is that when uninstalling the main program package only, it also removes the templates.

Can I specify anywhere for this not to happen? Considering the amount of control I've been able to maintain up until now I'm sure it must be!!?

TIA

Is the property tested in conjunction with the special property REMOVE anywhere? If not, you will probably have to explicitly use the REMOVE property to specify each of the features which you want to be removed. That, of course, assumes that the templates are in their own, discrete feature.

Sorry I'm not sure what you mean. Where is the special property "REMOVE"? Are you talking about a table within the msi?

REMOVE

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa371194%28VS.85%29.aspx

so you'd specify on the command line

msiexec /x {ProductCode} REMOVE=feature1;feature2;feature3 /qb

Commas, Timster, not semi-colons, to separate the list items.

Ok thanks, I can see what you mean but there are 39 features and only Two relate to the templates so is there any way to specify not to uninstall these Two rather than listing all 37 to remove?

Well just tested out a "REMOVE=Feature1" command but this still removed the templates. Any other ideas?

Take a versbose log of the uninstall. Identify which features are flagged as being for removal. They'll look like this in the log:MSI (s) (38-90) [16:04:04:323]: Feature: {a feature name here}; Installed: Local; Request: Absent; Action:AbsentI suspect that the templates may be a child of another feature. If that parent feature is selected for removal, its children will also be removed. In that case, you'll need to specify all the children but NOT the parent.
