What have you tried so far? Where are you getting stuck? What happens when you just put this line into a batch file and run it? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Oct 9 '12 at 20:11
I tried this: start "" "C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{4D9CA1B8-5FF5-47A7-8BDF-C37D1F9F55A5}\setup.exe" -runfromtemp -l0x0009 -removeonly -uninst and it's just bringing up the user interact to unistall, but I need one that will slilently unistall it. thanks – MaestroIT Oct 10 '12 at 15:11

Try removing the /removeonly switch and adding the /s switch (for Silent Mode).

The user interaction still comes up even when I remove the /removeonly switch and change it with /s – MaestroIT Oct 11 '12 at 18:58
