I have a completely broken Nero 7 install and want to uninstall it silently using SCCM. I have downloaded the Nero "General-CleanTool_2_2_0_37.exe" but can't seem to find any command line options that will run it silently.

Could someone please help.

Thanks J

I got the following from Nero and it seems to work for me.

Dear valued customer,

thank you for your e-mail.

With the Nero 7 Clean Tool it is possible to uninstall both Nero 6 and Nero 7 in silent mode.

You can download the Clean Tool from:


Extract the zip file to your hard drive.

To remove Nero, please run the Clean Tool from the command line and add the parameters:

/silence /start:all

Reboot after the Tool has finished.

Note: Nero SIPPS and Nero PhotoShow will not be affected by this tool.

Should you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

No persistence nowadays...

When searching for command-line arguments, the first thing to do is try the usual ones: /h, /?, /nonsense (this normally triggers some help text), then susbtituting a hyphen for the slash character and repeating. If that fails, load the EXE into an editor and search for likely text. In this case, I found 'SILEN' at 50C90. Nestling alongside was 'START'.
