View Full Version : How to determine where uninstall was launched from?

09-10-2003, 10:00 AM
Hi All,

I'm trying to figure out how I can tell if the uninstall program was launched via Add/Remove programs or by the application setup being run again.

The idea here is to let Add/Remove go ahead and run the uninstall program normally. If it launched by setup then I want the previous install to be removed silently and the installation to continue.

Any ideas????
