Hi, I´m trying to create a package for Oracle 11.1, works great using the OUI to create a answer file (.rsp)

The problem is uninstalling - if uninstalling silently using -deinstall it does not remove my ORACLE_HOME.

And YES i have set the variable REMOVE_HOMES, tried -removeallfiles and all command line options I can find on Internet :-)

The only solution I´ve found is to run the OUI manually and check the box remove empty homes or if I do this manually it also remove the homes - HELP!

this is the log file from the manually uninstall using the OUI GUI
INFO: The following products will be deinstalled:

This will be my solution:

path to setup.exe -setup.exe -deinstall -silent -noconsole -waitforcompletion -responseFile path to rsp file.rsp

DEL "c:\Program files\oracle" /F /S /Q
