Hi everyone. The company wants me to un-install a really old application that is not in use. The package is an EXE and was made with a really old version of Installshield. I'm not able to find the version of Installsheld used because the developers tell me they do not know

I have used the (-uninstall -s , uninst , /x
I have run the setup again and there is no un-install menu.

There is no GUID, application does not show up in Add/Remove Programs either.

Does anyone know know if there's an alternate way to uninstall very old EXEs?

Desperate times call for desperate measures...

I'd capture the app as an install, to get a list of files and registry entries that it makes, then construct an MSI or an EXE to remove them. (Actually, in truth, I'd probably do that in script because it's so easy to do, but your environment may not allow that)

Thanks VB. I think i'm going to just delete the folder, shortcut and registry entry and call it a day. Thanks for your input.
