Hi All,

Just wondered if anyone had found a way to silently uninstall Kindle For Pc using a batch file. From the registry it has been found that the uninstall string is C:\Program Files\Amazon\Kindle For PC\uninstall.exe.

I have tried using
msiexec.exe /x "C:\Program Files\Amazon\Kindle For PC\uninstall.exe" /Silent / Passive
msiexec.exe /x "C:\Program Files\Amazon\Kindle For PC\uninstall.exe" /QN
msiexec.exe /x "C:\Program Files\Amazon\Kindle For PC\uninstall.exe" /Q
msiexec.exe /x "C:\Program Files\Amazon\Kindle For PC\uninstall.exe" /Silent

I am fairly new to creating uninstall batch files so any help would be appreciated.

John,

as the Kindle installer is not an MSI - the MSIEXEC commnandlines you have mentioned will not work.

You are correct in assuming that you need to call 'uninstall.exe', but you need to have a silent switch with it:

uninstall.exe /S

Note the capitalisation of the letter 'S', a lower case 's' will launch the uninstaller with a GUI interface.
The /S also works for a silent installation of the software too.

As it's a slow Friday afternoon I downloaded the Kindle software and had a 5 minute play to ascertain this info.

Hope that helps,

Thanks for the /S option for Installation.  It seems to install to c:\users\username\...  Can this be changed?
