Silent Uninstall of Adobe Air & Shockwave.

Recommended Posts


;Uninstall Adobe Air
   RunWait ('msiexec.exe /x "' & @CommonFilesDir & '\Adobe Air\Versions\1.0\setup.msi" /qn')

;Uninstall Adobe Shockwave
   RunWait (@ScriptDir & "\Source\sw_uninstaller.exe /silent")

;Deletes Adobe Air Remaining files / folders
   DirRemove (@CommonFilesDir & "\Adobe Air\", 1)

Air uninstall is for all version i found on my network and works for x86 & x64

Shockwave uses the Adobe provided uninstaller and works with all version i tested on our network.

Adobe Shockwave Uninstaller

Let me know what you think! Any tips are also welcome!


Thanks to JOS for the assistance.

Hello TheLuge,

First you need to now that before silent uninstall Adobe Shockwave you need to kill the Shockwave process:

@echo Kill IE
taskkill /im iexplore.exe /f


In my network i'm using this simple script to uninstall Adobe Shockwave  found on google source: http://www.get-itsolutions.com/silent-install-adobe-shockwave-player-12-and-disable-update/


@echo Uninstallation of Adobe Shockwave Player
start "" /wait "%~dp0sw_uninstaller.exe" /S


Best regards

When it comes to uninstall strings or silently uninstalling software in general, look no further than here .

Or alternatively, the attached autoit script.  I forgot where in the forums I found this , but I know it is an autoIT script.
