I'm bumping this topic up since I have the exact same question. As a SCCM Consultant, I need to deploy and uninstall this product silently without any user intervention.  For AutoCAD 2013, I see in the registry that the AutoCAD uninstall string is:


Navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AutoCAD 2013 - English


UninstallString = C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2013\Setup\en-us\Setup\Setup.exe /P {5783F2D7-B001-0000-0102-0060B0CE6BBA} /M ACAD /language en-US


After invoking the above command, it brings up a splash screen with an Uninstall button.  I need a switch that will not bring that screen up, and uninstall AutoCAD 2013 silently.


Does anyone know what this would be?



As an alternative, I can create a script calling multiple msiexec /X {product GUIDs} /qn, but I'd like to avoid that route.

Uninstall with pop-up
"C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2013\Setup\en-us\Setup\Setup.exe" /P {5783F2D7-B001-0000-0102-0060B0CE6BBA} /M ACAD /language en-US

Silent uninstall
"C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2013\Setup\en-us\Setup\Setup.exe" /QB /W /T /P {5783F2D7-B001-0000-0102-0060B0CE6BBA} /R ACAD /language en-US

Replace /P with /QB /W /T /P
Replace /M with /R

These options work also for other Autodesk's products like Navisworks etc.
