Hi ,

i am using the following CMD lines to uninstall the .Net Frame work 4.0, which are working when i ran them manually.

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\SetupCache\Extended\setup.exe /uninstall /x86 /x64 /ia64 /parameterfolder Extended /q /norestart
C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\SetupCache\Client\setup.exe /uninstall /x86 /x64 /parameterfolder Client /q /norestart

i am trying to write an custom action to uninstall the .Net Extended and .Net Framework 4 ,

1. Execute the program from destination ,
2. I have placed the custom action just before the install finalize
3. Execute Normal Immediate/Differed
5 Synchronous wait until end of the sequences

the above custom action is not working, can any one please help me to do this task.

Thanks and Regards

.Net Framework extracts and executes several MSIs. You cannot run an MSI from within another MSI.

See '%SystemRoot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\SetupCache\Extended' and '%SystemRoot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\SetupCache\Client'

when i did it for installation it works and installation successful. i have created the same custom action as mentioned above(created wrapper of MSI)
the cmd line --> .NetSetup.exe /passive /norestart.

is there any other way to uninstall the . net framework silently ?

Thanks and Regards

Best tool for .Net uninstall. I've used it in our environment & it works like a charm. You can also do this silently
