Software Deployment Question

Can install printer driver but cannot uninstall silently :-(

07/14/2017 1495 views
I have a Lexmark MX310 printer and I made a silent install installation with their package builder.
We end up with 2 files:


We launch the exe and it gets installed silently. Perfect
What we cannot do is uninstall it with the command from the registry: "C:\Program Files\Lexmark MX310 Series\Install\x64\LMADVinstallgui.exe" /u OEMProductName="Lexmark MX310 Series"

It launches a gui to uninstall some or all components:


I cannot find switches for it. I already tried /s /silent /quiet /uninstall

Applications are just a bunch of files and/or registry data. Build yourself a script to remove the relevant files and/or registry data, remembering that printer connections are made per-user.

Alternatively, you may want to use AppDeploy's Repackager (if you don't already have an MSI authoring tool) to create an MSI from the legacy (i.e. non-MSI) installer that Lexmark creates. You can then use standard Windows Installer command lines to install/uninstall. The caveat about connections still applies, though.

I asked because I managed to get the silent install working and I thought the uninstall would be simple as well
