Silent Uninstall for Spark installs using install4j

Hi All,

We’‘re looking to standardize our Spark platform. I have no problem removing the spark installs that were generated using .msi’‘s, but can’'t seem to find a silent uninstall feature for those spark installs using the install4j installer (such as the Spark_2_5_0.exe package). Does anyone here know how to remove these types of installs silently via commandline? Thank you in advance for any help you can render.


EDIT: Figured out another way to do this. Thanks for the help.

What was the “other way”?

check out the option -q This should be silent install.

same with uninstall? do you just run this from a cmd prompt?

c:\program files\spark>

uninstall.exe -q


amazing! that worked! you’re my hero

o post é antigo mais é possível a desinstalação em massa ?

What do you mean in bulk? You can add uninstall command into say cmd script and then run it via Group Policy on all computers (either on startup or on shutdown). There are other ways to do scripts.

We ran this command on our machines from an elevated command prompt and it worked:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Spark\uninstall.exe " -q

Isso mesmo, criar um script para desinstalar por GPO.

Tentei executar este comando porém não tive sucesso.

The pidgin installer can be run in a “silent” mode by using the following syntax:

pidgin-x.y.z-offline.exe /DS=1 /SMS=0 /L=1033 /S /D=C:\Pidgin
[13:30, 24/9/2017] +55 71 8829-2655: The /L flag sets the language (Windows LCID) used by the installer, as well as Pidgin itself. The /D flag, if specified, sets the installation directory; it must be the last parameter used in the command line and must not contain any quotes, even if the path contains spaces. You may omit both the /L and /D flags and use the defaults which are 1033 (English) and %PROGRAMFILES%\Pidgin respectively. The /DS and /SMS flags can be used to enable or disable the Desktop and Start Menu Shortcuts. You’ll want to use the “offline” installer to do this.
