How Can You Silently Uninstall ADR?

I need to be able to uninstall ADR 2012 from a command line silently.


In this instance it is 2012, but i expect the command line switches are same/similar for older versions.  The uninstall string is


C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Autodesk Design Review 2012\Setup\Setup.exe /P {9E4D5A41-1051-4F1A-8342-ECB26CA0C86C} /M ADR /language en-US


But that is not silent.

Please try the command

msiexec /uninstall {9E4D5A41-1051-4F1A-8342-ECB26CA0C86C} /quiet


However,  it haven't been tested.

Thanks, much appreciated.


I think i did try that SID but the desktop icon didnt disappear so i assumed it hadnt worked.  A reboot later and further testing confirms the above command works fine, although i have actually setup our package to use:


msiexec /x {9E4D5A41-1051-4F1A-8342-ECB26CA0C86C} /norestart /passive


So if run manually, the technician can see the progress and when run programatically, its hidden from the user anyway, as it runs with the SYSTEM account.


Thanks for your reply.
