I have a prblem related to a windows intaller prompt. If I try uninstalling my msi package by retrieving and running the uninstall string from the regsitry (from the location HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall), I get a prompt from Windows Installer asking me if I really want to uninstall the product. It has two buttons, yes and no.
I want to get rid of this prompt, when i run the uninstall string, it shoudl directly uninstall the application without asking for a prompt.
how do I do this? and is it possible to suppress the UI (make it completely silent) when running the uninstall string?
I hope for some responses

thanks Neelesh

When you launch msiexec.exe, pass '/qn', (omit the quotes), in your command line.

That should do it.

Good Luck.
