uninstall dies quietly RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have an application that invokes the different product installers for our products.  It works fine when we install for the first time (or after a manual uninstallation).  However, it fails quietly when our application tries to uninstall a pre-existing installation.  I tried shutting of UAC but it didn't help.  Am I doing something wrong? I also turned off all the UAC entries in secpol.msc.

     

    By the way, when I run the program from within Visual Studio 2005 it gives me a message "Do you want to stop debugging?" when the uninstall fails quietly.  Weird!  It's as if the process just died without telling anyone.  I should add the death occurs from a call to start the external program using "ProcessStartInfo" and "Process".
