Note
The product's MSI generally has a problem recreating the profile related data for every user that logs in. Adding the below script to a custom action or launched by active setup will do the trick. Fixing the recreation of files for %APPDATA% can fixed through the msi or quickly by adding an active setup StubPath for MSIEXEC /fp {GUID} /qn as part of the installation.

I recommend not using their setup.exe (wrapper) and packaging each prerequisite individually.

To uninstall DWG TrueView 2, use the following command line:

msiexec /uninstall <path>\dwgv.msi /qb

I tried using the GUID for DWG TrueView 2 and it did not work. It was looking for the msi, which was stored in the TEMP directory during installation, then deleted. I use /qb for testing, so that I can determine the application is actually being uninstalled.

Make sure you download the very latest version (3.0.0.139) here: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?siteID=123112&id=6703485 as it does not have the administrator issue
issue noted here: http://jtbworld.blogspot.com/2006/04/dwg-trueview-2007-major-problems.html (per *NOT* being able to run as
user/poweruser)

news://discussion.autodesk.com/autodesk.dwg.trueview - This is the autodesk news/discussion group for this product, free support.

Application requires MSI 3.1, .NET Framework Runtime 2.0 or later, DirectX 9.0 or later, and MDAC 2.7 or later. The
setup.exe will install these but I recommend using your own verification so you can straight run the MSI and bypass these
checks. Also requires previous versions to be uninstalled before this version is installed, following are some strings to
use depending on what versions you have installed:

Simple install string - msiexec.exe /i "DWGViewr.msi" REBOOT=ReallySuppress /qb

For Powered By Volo View 3.0 (build 996) the command would be:

msiexec /x {0576A3D0-0000-0409-0000-491C453655D7} REMOVE="ALL" /qn

For Volo(TM) View Express 2 (Build 644) the command would be:

msiexec /x {1ECD6EC8-7BB2-4CD5-A384-BAA371BC4D21} REMOVE="ALL" /qn

For DWG TrueView 2.0 the command line would be msiexec /x {} REMOVE="ALL" /qn

Thanks to the 2.x thread for some of this information.
