First post! Hope I don't make an arse of myself out of the gate [;)]

Can anyone share some knowledge about scripting an unattended installation of the Microsoft Firewall Client (2000)?

Google seems to turn up no useful documentation...but I freely admit that my lack of success could be an external keyboard driver problem [8|]

This file exists on the client...
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Firewall Client\setupbin\UNINST.EXE"
...but despite my best attempts at determining a silent uninstall switch, it continues to prompt for confirmation.

Any assistance will be very much appreciated.

UNINST.EXE is an older Installshield file. Chances are this applicaiton could have been installed with Installshield or you are calling a different UNINST.EXE.

Look at the following link for command lines: Here

UNINST.EXE -y -a might work.

You can also try to use AutoIT. http://www.autoitscript.com/AutoIt/downloads.php

Thanks, Tom!

After some more investigative work, I came up with this method:

MsiExec.exe /X {8C7A59A8-9ABE-459A-9A93-08C281A4A264} /qn
My lack of knowledge about package IDs makes me a little nervous. Under what circumstances might the package ID change?
