Silently Uninstall with SCCM

04/21/2014 17838 views

Hi, i'm trying to uninstall Verint through SCCM 2007 and was wondering if someone could tell me how to do this silently. I am doing it in a  BAT file just to make sure it works but i can't get it to run silently.

This is what I tried based off the uninstall string that I found in the Registry and the information i found on the internet "/qn"

 REM V10
REM Verint Multimedia Support Package
MsiExec.exe /qn /I{D973D847-6CF7-48B1-8FDD-DED1F79C68C9}

REM Impact 360 Desktop Applications
MsiExec.exe /qn /I{F7578B69-7EEF-46CF-8E36-E73922E6FD70}

yep, your bat is running a maintenance mode... you will get the repair, modify, remove option. (unless they have been disabled)

when you are testing, run:
MsiExec.exe /x "{D973D847-6CF7-48B1-8FDD-DED1F79C68C9}" /qb

If a reboot is needed it will prompt you with a yes/no option (with the /QB) however, when you do it really silently, with the /QN if a reboot is needed, it will just happen with no prompts.
Also remember that when you are testing, you will likely NOT have the application open, users might have, so belts and braces....

I use this:
msiexec /x "GUID" REBOOT=ReallySuppress /QN

  • I only just managed to get a chance to test this and it works perfectly. Thanks!

The '/i' argument is for installs only, not uninstalls and the '/qn' needs to be after the ProductCode GUID.

In addition, it is sufficient to type REBOOT=R rather than ReallySuppress as Windows Installer only checks the first character.
