Script using MSIexec.exe fails when adding /norestart with /qn

Good morning (or afternoon or evening or night depending when you read this),

Trying to script removing Cisco Anyconnect Network Access Management, but as above, when I try and make it silent and and ensure that users PC's won't suddenly restart on them it fails but works nicely with only one of these properties. The ultimate aim being to push this script via KACE of course.

Should also add that this happens even when I try to run it from an elevated cmd prompt not pushing through case.

I've also tried "reboot=reallysuppress"

Does anyone have any advise?

Thanks very much!

Add the verbose log argument to ALL of your MSIExec command lines. With no log, any diagnosis is pure guess-work.

I've got it! I changed /qn to just /q and it worked fine.. 

MsiExec.exe /X{D3DECDDC-34F0-4F07-B387-8547873B158C} /q REBOOT=ReallySuppress

Did have a look at the log but I couldn't see much helpful on there, I'll make sure I remember to in the future as I feel this is going to creep up more and more.
