New MS Edge Chromium - Remove the Old Edge silently?

Hi folks

I am trying to write a batchscript to install the new Microsoft Edge. I've downloaded the MSI from here https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/edge/business/download.

For the installation, I use the following command:

msiexec /i \\server\share$\folder\MicrosoftEdgeEnterpriseX64.msi /qn /norestart

It works like a charm. After the execution, the new edge is installed and all Group Policies are working, but the old Legacy-Edge is still available..... And this bastard is still working.....

When I install the new Edge with this setup here...


... it will remove the old Edge and replace it completely with the new Edge. That is what I want!

Does anybody here have an idea? How can I replace the old Edge with the new Chromium Edge silently?

Thanks for the efforts

so i had this same issue 

using the MicrosoftEdgeEnterpriseX64.msi downloaded from their website (version 90.whatever.818.42) this actually does replace the old version and you only have the edge chromium after.

using /quiet (or /qn) and /i as your params on the managed intsall.

hope this helps anyone else

Why not use the setup-file?
