Command Line
Unattended uninstallation is a new Feature in Series 7 Version 2 MR2, but the syntax is different between Series 7 Version 2 and Series 7 Version 3.
Here is the syntax for MR3 version :

Use uninst -u -s uninst.ini for a silent uninstallation.
Steps:
1. Go to the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Cognos Shared\cer4\Uninstall directory and open the uninst.ini file.
2. Set RemoveAllCompsFlag to 1 if you would like to uninstall all components.
3. Set RemoveAllCompsFlag to 0 if you would like to uninstall only selected components. For each component, change the value to 1 if you would like to uninstall it and to 0 if you would like to keep it, for example here are the settings to uninstall the PowerPlay for Excel component -
[Remove All Components]
RemoveAllCompsFlag=0

(Steps to Use a Transfer Specification File (.ats) From a Previous Installation)

1. Use the Installation Wizard to copy the required components to your computer.
2. Go to the installation_location/instlog directory.
3. Locate the transfer specification file (.ats) that was generated.
The file name follows the same naming convention as the component log file and has the
following format:
ts-PRODUCT-version-yyyymmdd-hhmm.ats
4. Copy the transfer specification file from step 3 to the computer where you will be doing an
unattended copy.
5. On the computer where you will be doing an unattended copy, insert the Cognos CD.
6. Open a command prompt window and go to the Cognos/product directory on the CD.
7. Type the following command, where location is the directory where you copied the transfer
specification file:
issetup /s location\ts-product_name-version-yyyymmdd-hhmm.ats (Windows)
issetupcc -s location /ts-product_name-version-yyyymmdd-hhmm.ats (UNIX)
This copies the specified components in the transfer specification file to your computer.
