Uninstaller Command Line Parameters

During the installation of the PDF Writer it prepares the information it needs in the event of an uninstall operation. The uninstaller is located in the program folder and has the name unins???.exe. Normally the unins???.exe is named unins000.exe.

Uninstall can be done from the Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel. It can also be automated and run from the command line. When running the unins???.exe from the command line you can use the command line switches shown below.

/SILENT, /VERYSILENTInstructs the uninstaller to be silent or very silent. When uninstall is silent the wizard and the background window are not displayed but the progress window is. When an uninstall operation is very silent this progress window is not displayed. If a restart is necessary and the '/NORESTART' command isn't used (see below) and Setup is silent, it will display a Reboot now? message box. If it's very silent it will reboot without asking.
/SUPPRESSMSGBOXESInstructs the uninstaller to suppress message boxes. Only has an effect when combined with '/SILENT' and '/VERYSILENT'.
/NORESTARTInstructs the uninstaller not to reboot even if it's necessary.
/LOG=filenameThe program writes a log to the specified file name. If the file exists, it will be overwritten.
