MSI uninstallation launches Internet Explorer window
08/02/2017 803 views
I'm trying to uninstall a MSI silently and once uninstallation is complete, it automatically launches internet explorer window. I would like to know if we can suppress IE window from opening. I'm using below command-line:
MSIEXEC.EXE /x <PRODUCT CODE> /qn /norestart

It will no doubt be a custom action that runs towards the end of the InstallExecuteSequence on removal. So open your MSI in Orca, go to the InstallExecuteSequence table, sort it by the Sequence column (ascending), scroll to the bottom of the table and look for any custom actions that run during removal (the Condition column may be REMOVE~="ALL" or similar). If it's named something obvious (like 'LaunchIE') you can amend the condition for that row to be something that will never equate to true, such as 1=0. Don't amend the MSI directly though - generate an MST.
