  • Unistall of software over network

    I have created an msi of lightwave 3d 9.5 by using wininstall le. I need to unistall lightwave 3d 9 before I can run the 9.5 install. I tried using wininstall le (by installing lightwave 3d 9 tkaing a snapshot unistalling and taking a snapshot) but that didnt seem to work.

    Any ideas. Can the unistaller be run in a startup script or shutdown task?

    Any help or ideas greatly appreciated.

          Is the installer scriptable, and can it be configured via a switch to uninstall the package? If so, then it can be run using a script. Otherwise, you're going to have to uninstall it manually.

            Check out the registry for the uninstall string.
            You might try that running from a startup script.
