Can someone please offer any advice on how to uninstall the below two strings at the same time using a batch file?

MsiExec.exe /i{5577B8F7-A4A8-451E-BDE1-471E52825904}

"C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{4D9CA1B8-5FF5-47A7-8BDF-C37D1F9F55A5}\setup.exe" -runfromtemp -l0x0009 -removeonly -uninst

At the same time isn't possible if you mean in parallel - by using a batch it means one will execute after the other – Dave Oct 9 '12 at 13:32
Yes I meant in parallel, one after the other but running in a quiet mode – JP Emedi Oct 9 '12 at 13:40
No, you mean in serial :) – Dave Oct 9 '12 at 13:41
yes, one after the other – JP Emedi Oct 9 '12 at 13:44

If you want to launch them both at the same time then use start

start MsiExec.exe /i{5577B8F7-A4A8-451E-BDE1-471E52825904}
start "" "C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information{4D9CA1B8-5FF5-47A7-8BDF-C37D1F9F55A5}\setup.exe" -runfromtemp -l0x0009 -removeonly -uninst

However, if they are both MSI, you might get an error on one saying it can't uninstall until the other has finished.

How do I create a batch file to unistall them as one is MSI and the other is .exe file? – JP Emedi Oct 9 '12 at 13:42
Put those commands in a notepad file and save it as filename.bat then run it. I presumed those were the right commands that you posted so I just copied and pasted them, to run an MSI in quiet mode I think you need the /q switch, type msiexec at a cmd prompt for all the options. – Bali C Oct 9 '12 at 13:45
Thanks a lot Bali C. – JP Emedi Oct 9 '12 at 13:52
No problem, glad to help. – Bali C Oct 9 '12 at 13:57
I can unistall the first string no problem, but the second one is my problem and I'd like to unistall them both in a quiet mode using a batch file. Can you help Bali? – JP Emedi Oct 9 '12 at 13:58
