Hi, I need to deploy MS Forefront UAG Client Components 4.0.0. The problem is that the uninstall reboots the PC without warning or delay possibility.
The original source is an MSI, however the only thing the MSI does is extracting the actual source files to a temporary folder and then it launches a setup.exe file which handles the installation itself. Using msiexec /x on the MSI file doesn't work. But I found that passing /q UNINSTALL=1 to the MSI launches the uninstall procedure. It actually calls this command: "rundll32.exe C:\WINDOWS\DOWNLO~1\WhlMgr.dll,UnInstall 3.1.0 63 0 0 4.0.0". The zero (0) before "4.0.0" means silent, but it reboots PC without warning. When I put it to 1 (not silent), I get a message box with a reboot prompt (yes/no). So there is a way to delay reboot, but I can't find how to trigger it in silent mode

So in your case I would try
Setup.exe /qn /UNINSTALL=1 /REBOOT=ReallySuppress

Thanks for the reply . The above method is not working
Is there any method other the suppressing the reboot using sendkeys.
