Visual C# 2008 Express Edition silent installation/uninstallation switch

I am working an application Visual C# 2008 Express Edition. The setup is an exe file. while installing the application it downloads and install many components from the internet. I have checked the Process Monitor but I am not able to find out beacause the installer fails to install. Each time I can't download from the Internet to check. Is there any way to find the installer without downloading.

The page to download the web setup also has a link: All - Offline Install ISO image file


(and don't forget to click the Visual Studio 2008 Express button in the upper menu)

As it happens I'm currently packaging Visual Studio 2008 Express. Be sure to have a look at the Package KB entry for Visual Studio 2008. You can extract the MSI from an exe in the sources on the disk and use this as a starting point for your installer instead of the exe...

I got a silent installation which installs the setup.exe silently by using /q but for uninstallation i could'nt get the silent switch. Is there any solution for this?

As usual, all the information you need is already on AppDeploy.
