I have a software from a vendor that is installed with InstallShield. I need to write a script to uninstall the software from everyone's computer silently. I can see the following path for the uninstall, "C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{746CC629-4828-4E6C-842B-81BDDC3374FA}\Setup.exe" -uninst ", but I really need to do the precess silently. I have seen seeveral post about creating an answer file, but none of them work or they don't make since. I also assume that this package was created with an old InstallShield, but I can't confirm that.

Any help or guidance is appreciated.

Try this way:
"C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{746CC629-4828-4E6C-842B-81BDDC3374FA}\Setup.exe" /x /s
If Setup.exe runs underlaying .msi package use also /v switch (exactly as described!):

"C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{746CC629-4828-4E6C-842B-81BDDC3374FA}\Setup.exe" /x /s /v"/qn"
Meanings:
/x ... mean uninstall
/s ... silently
/v ... passing parameters to undelaying .msi package
"/qn" ... .msi installer parameter means "really quiet"

More information on setup.exe command line parameters you can find on InstallShield help net SETUP CMD line and for MSIEXEC command line on InstallShield help net MSIEXEC CMD line
