Install /Deinstall of Oracle Developer suite 10g

11/28/2006 21069 views

Has anyone done silent installation and uninstallation of Oracle Developer suite 10g.

What is the commandline given for deinstallation in specific?When I use setup.exe -deinstall option with rsp file I created for installation it is failing.Do I have to create a separate rsp file for uninstall?

Also what should be the value for DEPENDENCY_LIST?

Any help is appreciated.

What is the Setup.exe captured in. If it is InstallShield then you will have to create a uninstall Responce file.

Here are a few of links for InstallShield that might help.


Basically you run

setup.exe -r

After you complete the Recording go look for


This is your answer file. Now take the setup.iss file copy it to your source directory. Rename the file as Oracle_Unst.iss or what ever naming convention you would like.

The uninstall string will look like:

"C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{D3A12CD2-F3C2-4746-ACF6-82C049957B22}\setup.exe" /s /v/qn /x /f1"C:\Temp\SARSP2.iss"

This is all assuming the setup.exe was created\captured in InstallShield.

Did anyone ever figure this out?

I'm using the terrrrrible Oracle installer to silently install (fought with that for a few days). Seems to work, although I can't suppress the CMD window it pops.

The issue I'm having now is silently uninstalling it.

Oracle Client for Windows + patch.

Anyone figure out how to do this?

Yeah, I read the Package KB but no one mentioned uninstalling. I figured this out though.. using this:

..and discovering I had some locked files that were killing my script. I decided to abandon the crap that Oracle leaves behind after uninstall. It's only about 14MB anyway.

thanks aogilmor for the link.

having some thought that the Oracle client successfully deinstalled silently but its patch files still remain, we're going to create msi for the patch files then hopefully they would be remove during uninstallation of the msi. [:@]

Use -noconsole parameter to suppress the CMD window
