In some cases, you may need to uninstall the current version of TestArchitect in silent mode before installing the newer version. In this mode, the uninstallation is performed automatically without any user interaction.
To remove previously installed TestArchitect in silent mode by using InstallShield, create an uninstallation response file to store the needed uninstallation settings.
"D:\Silent installation\TestArchitect Build\TestArchitect_220.127.116.11_x64.exe" /uninst /r
Deploying TestArchitect uninstallation file on other computers and running the uninstallation there using the created response file.
"D:\Silent installation\TestArchitect Build\TestArchitect_18.104.22.168_x64.exe" /s /uninst /removeonly /f1"D:\Silent installation\Silent files\uninstall.iss" /f2"D:\Silent installation\Silent files\uninstall.log"
In silent mode, the uninstallation wizard shows no informative, warning or error messages. The uninstallation program creates the log file and writes the uninstallation status to that file. You can examine that log file to learn whether TestArchitect has been removed successfully.
The file is located in the folder, specified by the /f2 parameter (learn more). Open the file and check the ResultCode value. 0 indicates success, any other values indicate an error. A complete list of error codes is available here.
