Are there any command line switches for setup_wm.exe to silently uninstall Windows Media Player 10?

Hi Fly:

switches for setup_

There you go for mplayer switches

MP10Setup.exe /q:A /c:"setup_wm.exe /Q /R:N /P:#e"

you could also try referring to this page:

Hi Bhipesh,
I created an MSI for WMPlayer 10 using the EDP. But I am unable to uninstall or rollback silently. I tried the switch you reffered but it did not work. I think your switch works for a silent install of a setup.exe. If you know the sient uninstall for player10 pls let me know. I tried the switch "C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\Setup_wm.exe" /Uninstall, but it asks for a confirmation and a restart.

Hi Chandra:

If you have created an MSI for WM then try this command line

Msiexec.exe /q /norestart /x "MSI Name or product code"

Get back in case of any issues.

That will uninstall the deployment Pack, but not the actual application. I have yet to find a way to do a silent rollback

Hi Xythex:

I believe the problem that Chandra is facing after creating the MSI; he is not able to supress the reboot and the silent option of running the installation. I believe the command line that I have given above works for almost every MSI. The deployment pack that you are talking about is totally a diff. issue altogether.

Hello Bhupesh,
I second what xythex is saying. When I create an MSI using the EDP, it is creating a GUID in registry .But the uninstall dosent work with that GUID (msiexec /x [XXXXXXXX]. It only removes that GUID and dosent uninstall the actual application. I think that the EDP creates an API(Application Program Interface) or creates a wrapper to the original package. It is good for an unattended install only. Any way folks thanks for the response but it would be great if some one could provide me an unattened string for uninstall
