Hi all!

I'm installing Creative Suite 2.x with the solution provided by Adobe at their site:

http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/331297.html

It works fine.
The problem I've is to make a silence uninstall of the whole suite.
The uninstall entry on the registry for Creative Suite is located at:

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{0134A1A1-C283-4A47-91A1-92F19F960372}\UninstallString

But when running the string stored there, it just pop up the uninstall wizard, there I have manually to click NEXT...NEXT.
I can't fine any way to make a full SILENCE uninstall.

Does anyone know how to uninstall the whole Adobe Creative Suite using the entry on the registry?

Regards from Sweden!

Since I just spent a couple hours trying to figure out this very thing I thought I'd share it.... Basically what you need to do is find the Adobe Product IDs within the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Currentversion/Uninstall" registry subkeys. Then just use MSIexec to automatically remove each component. If you get stuck, check out the info contained in the "UnistallString" key.

Here's sample of a .VBS script that removes Adobe Creative Suite 2 - note that I don't install all the components, so you'll need to do some work (I also uninstall with a passive progress bar and not totally silent). Also, if you want to be really neat and tidy, check out Adobe's site for information on what additional folders and registry keys you can get rid of.

' Automatically removes Adobe Illustrator CS2 from the workstation.
WshShell.Run "msiexec /x {B2F5D08C-7E79-4FCD-AAF4-57AD35FF0601} /passive /norestart", 1, True

' Automatically removes Adobe InDesign CS2 from the workstation.
WshShell.Run "msiexec /x {7F4C8163-F259-49A0-A018-2857A90578BC} /passive /norestart", 1, True

WshShell.Run "msiexec /x {236BB7C4-4419-42FD-0409-1E257A25E34D} /passive /norestart", 1, True

WshShell.Run "msiexec /x {AC76BA86-1033-0000-7760-100000000002} /passive /norestart", 1, True

' Automatically removes Adobe Common File Installer from the workstation.
WshShell.Run "msiexec /x {8EDBA74D-0686-4C99-BFDD-F894678E5B39} /passive /norestart", 1, True

' Automatically removes Adobe Suite Specific from the workstation.
WshShell.Run "msiexec /x {C49DAA9C-5BA8-459A-8244-E57B69DF0F04} /passive /norestart", 1, True


I hope that helps,
