tried to silently uninstall a fujitsu scandall pro software. I tried different parameters to silently uninstall with no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

Have you looked in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall to see whats listed in there for it?

“C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield Installation Information\{69255D2B-F887-4C43-AC7B-4B11779EAD7B}\setup.exe” -runfromtemp -l0x0409 /zUNINSTALL

You could try msiexec.exe /x{69255D2B-F887-4C43-AC7B-4B11779EAD7B}. Add /qn to make it silent.

If the guid listed in the uninstall isn't the same as the one listed in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{GUID}, you may need to use that one instead.

msiexec.exe /x{69255D2B-F887-4C43-AC7B-4B11779EAD7B} /qn like you have suggested but it seems like it only removes the short cut on the desktop, but not the Add/Remove programs.

Just to clarify, when I installed the application it was by clicking the batch file that is calling.
Start /wait c:\filename\setup.exe /s /flc:\filename\scan.iss

give this a shot:

first run “C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield Installation Information\{69255D2B-F887-4C43-AC7B-4B11779EAD7B}\setup.exe” -runfromtemp -l0x0409 /zUNINSTALL -r

and look for a file called setup.iss in your %Windir% folder, you might want to rename this to remove.iss to avoid confusion.

Then run “C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield Installation Information\{69255D2B-F887-4C43-AC7B-4B11779EAD7B}\setup.exe” -runfromtemp -l0x0409 /s f1path\to\remove.iss

Not sure if this will work but give it a try.

I will try to explain more of "pjgeutjens" post.

We need to record the Uninstall that is happening by running following command :

“C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield Installation Information\{69255D2B-F887-4C43-AC7B-4B11779EAD7B}\setup.exe” -r -f1"path of the iss file that will be created(c:\remove.iss)" -f2"path of the log file(c:\remove.log)" .

Save the remove.iss file . Now install the product as you did earlier.

Now to remove the product run the following command:

“C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield Installation Information\{69255D2B-F887-4C43-AC7B-4B11779EAD7B}\setup.exe” -runfromtemp -l0x0409 /s f1"path\to\remove.iss".

This should remove the product silently.
