    InstallShield uninstalls

    Anyone know how to initiate uninstall for an app other than going through control panel - add/remove programs? A command line to start up an uninstall would be very useful.

    Regards,
    Brian

    Assuming that you are attempting to uninstall a Win32 app, you may be able to obtain the path to the app's uninstaller by reading the UninstallString value in the system registry at:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Uninstall\InsertYourAppNameHere

    What language is the installation developed in? The person that developed it might be able to give you some insight on other ways to do it. Some applications have and Unimstall.exe that will run from the command line. (but they still require user interaction via a GUI)
