We are currently creating a setup program using InstallShield Professional 7 that must be able to uninstall an Installscript MSI installation created with InstallShield Developer 8.

{40144755-E888-4D99-AD41-CE744F909762} is the PRODUCT_GUID(aka Product code) for the old installation.

The following script snippet basically works - it launches the uninstaller for the old installation:

LaunchAppAndWait("c:\\Program Files\\Common Files\\InstallShield\\Driver\\8\\Intel 32\\IDriver.exe", "/M{40144755-E888-4D99-AD41-CE744F909762}", WAIT);

The only problem is that the uninstaller is not silent - the user has to answer a couple of confirmation prompts for the uninstall to take place.
We would prefer that the uninstaller run silently. How do we make the uninstaller run silently???

I think you would have to record a .iss response file, just like in Professional.
