Hi,

I need help in uninstalltion of few application, I was wondering if anyone can give valuable suggestions, scenario is as below:

Target machines have JRE 1_4_1 and JRE 1_4_1_01 installed. Which are .exe based not the .msi based.

Now, I want to install latest version of JRE (which is msi based), and prior to its installtion I want to uninstall both JRE 1_4_1 and JRE 1_4_1_01 silently.

Please advise how this is achievable.

Many Many Thanks....

Do you have them installed via SMS?

You can search the registry and find the uninstall command in it

look in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\

there you need to find the uninstall string.

I already found the uninstallstring but the problem was to uninstall it silently, how can we do it silently?

Thanks for it, but this is not silent. When I run the commnad:

[font="courier new"]<jre>.exe /s /v "/qn [REBOOT=Suppress]" /x
[font="courier new"]
[font="courier new"]It says, do you want to uninstall it.
[font="courier new"]
[font="courier new"]How can I suppress this message? any idea about it?

lower portion.


Though you may not need to remove it as per
http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/remove_olderversions.xml


Or maybe this

http://www.myitforum.com/forums/m_145327/mpage_1/key_/tm.htm#145327

Though if people could update it themselves then they should the ones removing it too.

Hopefully it works else deploy a new image!

Also the myitforum post refers to

msiexec.exe /qb! /x <GUID>

and you are using <jre>.exe /s /v "/qn [REBOOT=Suppress]" /x

Maybe this can help. In any case hoping to get the result!
