hi everyone!

I created a wrapper in Wise which installs an installshield application. Installation works fine with the silent command switch but I have a problem with the uninstall procedure.

During uninstall using unwise.exe, it does not wait for the installshield to finish the uninstall. Instead, it deletes the folder where the install.log is saved as if the application uninstalled successfully.

I tried the command for the uninstall manually and it works fine with the answer file I created. I want to know if there's a way I could force unwise.exe to finish the uninstall before it deletes everything.

This is the line added to install.log:

Execute path: "%PROGRAM_FILES%\Installshield Installation Information\{%GUID%}\setup.exe" /s /SMS /f1"%UNINSTALL_PATH%\uninstall.iss"

thanks in advance.

you might be able to work around this by copying the 'uninstall.iss' to a temp directory and then cleaning it off at the end of the script.

You can also add a PAUSE command into your WiseScript to have it wait for a minute or so before continuing.
