hello all,

I am doing an application IBM Data Server Runtime Client - DB2Copy1. When i uninstall it using msiexec /x [ProductCode] /qn , it prompts a popup saying " DB2 installces still exists in the DB2 copy that is being uninstalled. If you cotinue, these DB2 instances will be removed. DB2 databases will not be removed. Do you want to continue with the uninstallation? " .
Can I not suppress this dialog box??
Also why this dialog is coming??? Can I not get those instances deleted prior to uninstall so that this dialog do not pops up??

Any help

IIRC, you need to stop the DB2 service and drop all the databases before uninstalling. You'll find IBM's documentation on DB2 pretty impenetrable so I advise you to find a friendly DB2 DBA to ask how to do that.
