RunWait help needed

6 posts in this topic

I am trying to execute the following, the

$value contains Uninstall string value(eg: 56DCEBC6-5C13-11D4-9981-00D0B72E2D98})

RunWait("MSIEXEC /X" & $value & "/qn")

I am wondering about how to use the /qn switch in the above RunWait, as /qn comes after the $value

variable in the command.

MSIEXE /X {Uninstall String} /qn

Any :)

Thanks in advance.

Add spaces.

RunWait("MSIEXEC /X " & $value & " /qn")

I have also tried RunWait("MSIEXEC /X " & $value & " " & " /qn")

Does not work??

See help file ... RUN WAIT only works with executable file.

No, the spaces was the answer (it's what I was gonna say).

And MSIEXEC IS an executable. You don't need ".exe" after it, Windows knows. Do...

RunWait("MsiExec");

And you will see.

Something else must be wrong with the command, no?

Does windows let you run the quiet uninstall string like that? Dunno, never tried.

(eg: 56DCEBC6-5C13-11D4-9981-00D0B72E2D98})

First of all I think that should be (eg: {56DCEBC6-5C13-11D4-9981-00D0B72E2D98}) but that might have just been a typo.

If {56DCEBC6-5C13-11D4-9981-00D0B72E2D98} is a registry key (it looks like it) then you will likely have to do a RegRead to get the value. I don't know for sure because the less I have to do with MSI the better. As Microsoft screwups go it runs a close second to Windows ME as far as I am concerned.
