I am trying to uninstall the Curl RTE silently and no luck.

Application is getting installed thru curl-rte-6.0.2-x-202-en.exe

tried all the options listed in the link http://developers.curl.com/thread/1637;jsessionid=CD4322418DB32BA878C77301B43543F6

but no luck...

It would be great if anyone could provide me the commendline parameters to uninstall silently.

Traps like this are precisely why I tend to capture ALL legacy installers to MSIs.

Anyway, since there is a developer forum for the product, it seems to me to make sense to pose your question there.

How often I've found these legacy apps to be rather annoying to get installed silently...

and absolutely IMPOSSIBLE to uninstall silently [:@]

so... What Ian said [:)]

I am regularly snagged by syntax errors. The devil is in the details...
So, they said to use the following to uninstall version 6.

"c:\Program Files\Curl Corporation\Surge\7\bin\config.exe" --silent --uninstall-completely

I would ask that you take a look at the double quotes, the double dashes, along with the single spaces to make 100% sure that you used exactly what they said to use. They also mentioned that the number directory should be one digit higher than the version you are trying to uninstall. In this case, 7 should be correct for you.

Then if it doesn't work, post a message to them. Meanwhile, do what Ian said and capture it...

Hi All,

Thanks for your repsonses. I had two options
1. Create Wise script to uninstall everything...since we have silent installation mechanism. --- This is not recommended way of doing.
2. Capture the installation and convert into MSI. Recommended way.

I would go with option 2 as vbScab is saying.

Bearden3, Tried all options and verified the quotes, spaces, double quotes...but no luck.

I have used the below command to uninstall Curl RTE silently:
"c:\Program Files\Curl Corporation\Surge\7\bin\config.exe" --silent --uninstall-completely --configure


It worked for me  :)
