Funny, I was just about to start packaging that. I'm assuming you installed it from the setup.exe? tsk tsk. It's very possible there's no way around that prompt.

I believe people have used a third-party program that initiates keystrokes automatically for this purpose. Maybe try searching the forum.

I´ve still not solved this but I guess I have to use some send key command/program...

Do a search for "Auto It" in the forum. I've never used it, but there are some on the board that have.

I know how that works and also Sendkey, but as Im unistalling with SMS a setup.exe with some swiches would be nice, but I guess there is no Silent install on this one.....thanks Installshield.

This method *may* work for you - although I don't have any direct experience with WinDVD.

On a machine with has WinDVD 5 currently installed :

1) Using REGEDIT, locate the uninstall command for WinDVD in the registry - should be somewhere in a subkey of

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall - and once you find it, copy the command to the clipboard

2) From either a command box, or from Start .. Run, paste in the command you copied at 1) and append the -r qualifier to this, then run the command.

3) Proceed through the uninstallation manually and, at the end you should hopefully have created an uninstallation silent script named setup.iss in the Windows folder.

4) I would suggest renaming this file to (say) uninst.iss and move it to another folder rather than the Windows folder.

5) Now you have the silent uninstallation response file, this can be used with future uninstallations on other machines using the following command :

<uninstall_command_taken_from_registry_at_step_1> -s -f1"<Path to uninst.iss>"


If the above doesn't work, then the following link may help :

Don't blame installshield.. blame the developer that used ISSCRIPT incorrectly (or at all). Guns don't kill people, people kill people. [:D]
