Hello, i need help in uninstalling Google chrome 31.0 silently. I have installed the application using Google Chrome standalone setup.exe /silent. Now i am running C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\31.0.1650.59\Installer>setup.exe --uninstall --multi-install --chrome --system-level from command prompt, this gives me a pop up to select if i want to delete browser history / set default browser to IE, and IE launches for feeback. I want to skip these steps and silently uninstall google chrome, any help is appreciated.

  • Just so that you're aware, there is an MSI installer in the form of Chrome for Business


    Using this obviously means that can you use standard MSI uninstall commands.

There is a vbs too : 


'Lines to get the computer Name
Const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002
 Set wshShell = WScript.CreateObject( "WScript.Shell" )
 strComputerName = wshShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings( "%COMPUTERNAME%" )
 dim folder, MyProperties, arrMyProperties, Exe, Param, oReg, strKeyPath, strValueName

 'To check whether the OS is 32 bit or 64 bit of Windows 7
'Lines to detect whether the OS is 32 bit or 64 bit of Windows 7 
 Set oReg=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputerName & "\root\default:StdRegProv") 
   strKeyPath = "HARDWARE\DESCRIPTION\System\CentralProcessor\0"
   strValueName = "Identifier"

 oReg.GetStringValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,strKeyPath,strValueName,strValue
'Checking Condition whether the build is 64bit or 32 bit
   if (instr(strValue,"64")) then
 folder = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome"

if (instr(strValue,"x86")) then

End If

MyProperties = RegVal
arrMyProperties = Split(MyProperties, "-")
Exe = arrMyProperties(0)
Param = "--uninstall --multi-install --chrome --system-level --force-uninstall"
'Uninstall Previous version Chrome
wshShell.run Exe & Param, 1, True
'Delete leftover folder and files from Previous version Chrome
dim filesys
Set filesys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
If filesys.FolderExists(folder & "\") Then  
   filesys.DeleteFolder folder
End If
Function ReadReg(RegPath)
      Dim objRegistry, Key
      Set objRegistry = CreateObject("Wscript.shell")
      Key = objRegistry.RegRead(RegPath)
      ReadReg = Key
 End Function
