I have a real simply MSI that uninstalls three applications. When applying the upgrade codes Wise puts them in order by the value of the GUID's, desending order I think. Is there a way of changing this order? I would like to uninstall these in a particular order. Thanks.

How are you initiating the uninstall? With Wisecript?

I think, from what he mentions (inputting the product codes) he is using the Upgrade feature in Wise Package Studio.

In this feature, if you enter the product codes for any installation already on the system, your MSI will first uninstall these applications before installing its own (or doing whatever you want it to do).

I have never tried to uninstall more than one app at a time using this method - just curious, but why do you need them uninstalled in a particular order?

This is WinRunner with a terminal and java piece installed along with it, 3 apps total. The previous packages where not done in the best manner and I need to uninstall the child apps first then the main application. I believe I will use Winbatch to do this and yes I was using the Upgrade feature to facilitate the uninstall. I have an updated version of WinRunner and I want a clean installation. Thanks.
