How can we uninstall Dollar Universe in silent mode so that we can script this and automate it without going to Add/Remove Programs?


OS: Windows

Release : 6.x and 7.x



The procedure to uninstall a node silently requires an .iss file created first, these are the steps, then the file can be used on other company nodes replacing the node/company name accordingly:

  1. Open a cmd as administrator and stop dollar universe
  2. Launch and select the instance to remove interactively to generate the file c:\temp\duas6_uninstall.iss" that will be used afterwards
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield Installation Information\{B801D14E-99C1-42A9-892F-DC0FB624A4EF}\setup.exe" -a /r /f1"c:\temp\duas6_uninstall.iss"
  3. Install again dollar universe 6, same name/company
  4. Stop the new node again in the cmd as administrator
  5. Launch again the installshield, this time with the previous iss file:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield Installation Information\{B801D14E-99C1-42A9-892F-DC0FB624A4EF}\setup.exe" -s -a /s /f1"c:\temp\duas6_uninstall.iss"
  6. The node will be uninstalled silently and this operation will take a couple of minutes. It's possible that the node folder is not deleted, so you could also add a removal of the node folder to your uninstall script at the end of the procedure.
