What I am trying to acheive is fairly simple,
Ideally in 1 deployment, but could be done in 2 steps,
Have an old software that runs on vb6. And I want to do a Silent uninstall first with this "Visual Basic 6 Setup Packages" on all computers that have them installed.
This works fine, locally. I have tried as a batch file, and as an elevated command promp string.
This is the line I use on my computer:
%systemroot%\st6unst.exe -n "C:\Program Files (x86)\xxx\st6unst.log" -f -q
Works perfectly fine!
Thi stakes about 3 seconds to uninstall everything. (as a batch file or as cmd prompt).
But as soon as I create a deployment, add a command step, using the "deploy user", It hangs, and have to abort the deployment.
Tested after to run it with the "logged on user" and it forks fine, on my computer, as I am the admin of it.
But Am trying to push this to users that aren't admin, using the "deploy user".
And the deploy user is installed as an admin on all of our machines...
Once uninstalled, during the samne deployment, I would put a pause of 5-10 seconds, and then run the installation of the new version of this software using command prompt aswell.
Again, this works fine locally to install this Visual Basic 6 Setup Packages.
I use this line either as a batch file or in an elevated command prompt:
And again, takes about 30 seconds to install silently. But fails using PDQ deploy.
I read both of the articles in your forum that touch this, but there is no clear answer as if this is feasable or not.
Coudl you please halp me out with this issue ??
