Hi. I am trying to uninstall a plug-in that has this exact uninstall key in the registry

"UninstallString"="RunDll32 C:\\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\INSTAL~1\PROFES~1\RunTime\0701\Intel32\Ctor.dll,LaunchSetup \"C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{D44D97D9-919B-4A6D-ABE8-C84B3DD757A9}\PluginSetup.exe\" -l0x9 -uninst

When I run this it of course prompts me with a dialog asking me "Are you sure you want to uninstall this?"

How do I make that SILENT? I don't want to see any dialog at all, I want it all totally silent.

I have tried addeding a /S /s -S -s /Q -q -y /y etc....etc......and nothing works. And yes, I have tried "-r" and that gives an dialog asking me for the source CD. And, since the plug-in I am trying to uninstall was downloaded off of the internet that is not an option.

This is calling the RunDll32 yet I have not seen a silent switch for rundll32.

Does anyone know how to uninstall this in SILENT mode without using a -r since it wont record a new .iss file.

Have you tried [App Path] /? to see if it will give you command line switches in a dialog box?
