msiexec /x {ProductCode} /qb-

where product code is found in the Property table of your msi.

Actually I tried that and it unistalled the MSproject in silent mode but the computer rebooted. I Tried all the following below and all did the same thing.

msiexec /x {ProductCode} /qn Reboot=ReallySuppress
msiexec /x {ProductCode} /quiet /norestart

I am not sure why the PC reboots even after I apply the ReallySuppress switch.

You need to us a public property; Reboot=private property and REBOOT=public property.

But I would have a look at:
2007 Office Resource Kit

Kim's (AngelD's) link directs you to the Office Resource Kit. If you're doing *anything* connected with Office other than using it, you need this kit. There will be information IN THE KIT concerning installing/uninstalling as well as deployment.

With all due respect, you need to sharpen your research skills, or learn a little more about software packaging. I was able to find this link in about 5 seconds:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc179195.aspx

SETUP_REBOOT is the property you're looking for. New with Office 2007.

I'll have to take a look at the reskit. I thought one was no longer needed for O2K7, you administer it using the setup.exe /admin switch. But if it'll help I would use it!

Good luck!

Thank you for the information you provided. I tried REBOOT_SETUP=Never but the PC rebooted again after uninstalling it. I also tried the other way by changing the config.xml to this

<Configuration Product="PrjStd">
<!-- <Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" /> -->

<!-- <Logging Type="standard" Path="%temp%" Template="Microsoft Office Project Standard Setup(*).txt" /> -->

<!-- <PIDKEY Value="BCDFGHJKMPQRTVWXY2346789B" /> -->
<!-- <USERNAME Value="Customer" /> -->

<!-- <COMPANYNAME Value="MyCompany" /> -->

<!-- <INSTALLLOCATION Value="%programfiles%\Microsoft Office" /> -->

<!-- <LIS CACHEACTION="CacheOnly" /> -->

<!-- <SOURCELIST Value="\\server1\share\Office12;\\server2\share\Office12" /> -->

<!-- <DistributionPoint Location="\\server\share\Office12" /> -->

<!-- <OptionState Id="OptionID" State="absent" Children="force" /> -->

<!-- <Setting Id="Reboot" Value="never" /> -->


setup.exe /uninstall /config Prjstd \\servername\share\Prjstd.WW\config.xml , but still the PC rebooted after the unistall.

Let me know if there are other ways through MsiExec command line.

Would it help to use:

<!-- <Setting Id="REBOOT_SETUP" Value="Never" /> -->

instead of

<!-- <Setting Id="Reboot" Value="never" /> -->

?

That helped the uninstall went fine but the only thing I want to change is when I run the command I get two prompts
1) It asks me if I want to uninstall MSProject 2007 and after the uninstallation it asks me if I want to reboot.

It there a place I need to change on config.xml.

Again, no disrespect, but learn to use the resources out there a little bit before posting here. My guess is that your problem can be resolved by a command line msiexec /x {guid}, or perhaps by setting the LIMITUI property (for control panel).

Start with the link I posted yesterday, which has a lot of properties for Office 2007. REBOOT_SETUP can probably be passed at the command line (although you'll probably want to notify the user to reboot, else they may have other application problems).

Navigate to microsoft.com/msdn which has a lot of stuff on Windows Installer. One of the first lessons is that property names are case sensitive, as Ian pointed out yesterday.

Good Luck and happy hunting!
