Hi,

I have made a uninstall shortcut which uses msiexec.exe /x {product} /qr. The uninstall wizard gets called correctly and removes the product, but while doing so, it displays things like "installing ProductName", "Please wait while installshield installs ProductName", which will confuse the user.

Is there anything I can do about it?


Thanks,
Josephine

Thanks, Joshua. I am actually using basic msi. I guess I need to do something to the setupprogress dialog. My question is, how does the setupprogress dialog know when to display "installaing" and when to display "uninstalling"?
