msiexec is a command prompt software that installs an msi program.

But I have found that you can install an msi file from the command line by just typing in the name of the msi file on the command line.

But in order to uninstall the msi file, it seems you have to call the msiexec program and give it an /x or /uninstall.

Does anyone know how I can uninstall and msi from the command line without using the msiexec routine?

There may be, but I'm not aware of a method to do that. May I ask why you would want to? Is there a limitation you are running into?

check the registry for the uninstall command the control panel uses for add/remove programs.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
