  • Hey Everyone,

    try this to silently INSTALL and UNINSTALL. (NOTE: Pretty sure this works with 2020/2022/2023)

    To install:

    .\PhotoshopElements_2022.exe --silent=1 --lang=en_US (whatever you want)

    .\PremiereElements_2022.exe --silent=1 --lang=en_US (whatever you want)
    To uninstall

    Go to either: HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall OR HKLM:\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
    Find your Elements Package and Locate the Uninstall String it should show something like this. (Adobe Photoshop Elements 2022)
    UninstallString : "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe Desktop Common\HDBox\Uninstaller.exe" --uninstall=1 --sapCode=PSE --productVersion=20.4 --productPlatform=win64 --productAdobeCode={PSE-20.4-64-ADBEADBEADBEADBEADBEADBE} --isNonCCProduct=true --productName="Adobe Photoshop Elements 2022" --mode=4

    Instead of using the Uninstaller.exe which doesn't accept certain switches do this: (SWAP out the codexVersion productPlatform & sapCode & deleteUserPreferences) Remember PSE = Photoshop Elements / PRE = Premiere Elements
    Photoshop Elements 2022

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe Desktop Common\HDBox\Set-up.exe" --silent=1 --uninstall=1 --sapCode=PSE --codexVersion=20.4 --productPlatform=win64 --deleteUserPreferences=true

    Premiere Elements 2022

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe Desktop Common\HDBox\Set-up.exe" --silent=1 --uninstall=1 --sapCode=PSE --codexVersion=20.4 --productPlatform=win64 --deleteUserPreferences=true
