Uninstallation for Microsoft XNA Game Studio 3.1.

Please can any one help me in getting the silent Installation/Uninstallation for Microsoft XNA Game Studio 3.1. The setup provided is an exe file and which can be downloaded from this site http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=80782277-d584-42d2-8024-893fcd9d3e82&displaylang=en.

The stub extracts a bunch of MSIs to a (seemingly) randomly-named folder in C:\. At the opening screen, copy the contents of this folder somewhere safe and then use the normal '/Qx' switch for executing the MSIs against MSIExec.EXE.

1) extract the files in that exe you downloaded (it's a self-extracting archive) to a folder of your choosing
2) have a look at the tasklist.xml file, it's a full rundown of the installation procedure

Looks like the redists.msi file you'll extract will actually install a bunch of other MSIs when you run it. These then get executed one by one.
This seems like a good basis for your package. If you want, make changes to those vendor MSIs, and install them one by one with /qn parameter, as indicated by the tasklist file.
Bit of a strange way of doing things, but hey...

Rgds,

EDIT: or what Ian said 45 seconds ago [:(]

The package you mentioned supports the /quiet command line parameter for install processes. For uninstall you can try using the msiexec command line, something like:
msiexec.exe /x {Product code GUID} /qb

Thanks for the reply

I am able to install the vendor exe silently but for an uninstallation I am searching for a command line. Please can anyone help me out.

Considering the fact that the install is actually a combination of MSI installs, like john said, open em all up, write down their ProductCodes and make a script to run the MSIEXEC.EXE /X {ProductCode} /qn command lines one after the other

I am trying for a silent switch for the main exe 'XNAGS31_setup.exe' which uninstall all the components. Any suggestions?
