    You will need to provide silent uninstall parameters for the application. The ability to silently uninstall depends on the vendor of the software. Below is an example of silently uninstalling Firefox. Notice how we appended the


    to the command. If the uninstall string uses MSIExec.exe then we automatically add the necessary silent uninstall parameters (since these are standard). If the uninstall uses an EXE (such as Firefox) then some additional due diligence is required to determine the correct silent parameters.

    The reason the uninstall is hanging is because it is expecting some response on the target. Since the uninstall is launched by a Windows Service so there is no interactive session. This means any dialogs or windows that are displayed are hidden from the user thus resulting in a timeout.
