I am uninstalling Citrix client using a batch file. The batch initiates the uninstall successfuly, but I need to input YES (for confirmation) automatically. How can I do this in the batch file?

Do you knwo what's asking? maybe a snippet of the batch file. How you automate it depends on what you're automating. – Deanna May 14 '13 at 10:48

You can try below code:

msiexec /x mps.msi /L*v c:\output.log CTX_MF_FORCE_SUBSYSTEM_UNINSTALL=Yes

Note: mps.msi is the name and location of the msi package.

You use echo to send yes to the application. Here's a small demo:

echo yes | findstr "^"
