I found this info in the Adobe Technical Communication Suite (2019 release) Installation Guide

Set-up.exe --silent=1 -uninstall=1 -sapCode=FRMK -productPlatform=win64 -codexVersion=15.0.0 -deleteUserPreferences=true

When i run this from the command line it has seems to be doing something and shows a progress percentage.

However, when the it is done with exitcode:0, FrameMaker is still installed on the system.

 

I have also tried the uninstall command from the registry but cannot get it to go silent.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe Desktop Common\HDBox\Uninstaller.exe" --uninstall=1 --sapCode=FM --productVersion=15.0.2 --productPlatform=win64 --productAdobeCode={FM-15.0.2-64-ADBEADBEADBEADBEADBEADB} --isNonCCProduct=true --productName="Adobe FrameMaker (2019 release) 64 bit" --mode=1

 

 

Any info on how to uninstall this silently is appreciated.

Hi _bcm_,

 

Though this is a belated reply (almost an year) but thought of sharing so that many could benefit from this.


I referred your above post when I was searching for silent installation and uninstallation switches for Adobe FrameMaker 2019 (15.0.5) application.


Silent installation switch that worked for me is as below:

 

"Set-up.exe" --silent=1 --install=1 --sapCode=FM --productVersion=15.0.5 --productPlatform=win64 --productAdobeCode={FM-15.0.5-64-ADBEADBEADBEADBEADBEADB} --isNonCCProduct=true --productName="Adobe FrameMaker (2019 release) 64 bit"

 

When I tried the uninstallation script as yours:

 

Set-up.exe --silent=1 -uninstall=1 -sapCode=FM -productPlatform=win64 -codexVersion=15.0.5 -deleteUserPreferences=true

It showed the progess precentage and then it actually reinstalls the application instead of uninstalling it hence the application remains on the machine.


And when I tried the uninstallation as per the uninstall string in regedit:

 

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe Desktop Common\HDBox\Uninstaller.exe" --uninstall=1 --sapCode=FM --productVersion=15.0.5 --productPlatform=win64 --productAdobeCode={FM-15.0.5-64-ADBEADBEADBEADBEADBEADB} --isNonCCProduct=true --productName="Adobe FrameMaker (2019 release) 64 bit" --mode=1 --Retain_Preferences="false"

 

It popped up for deleting or keeping user's preferences and did not end up silently as you said.
I also noticed that the uninstaller.exe file actually calls the source file (Set-up.exe) hence tried the above switch by calling the source Set-up.exe file instead of Uninstaller.exe with codexversion=version of product and vola the command was executed silently and uninstalled the application successfully.

 

The silent uninstallation command is as below:

 

"Set-up.exe" --silent=1 --uninstall=1 --sapCode=FM --codexVersion=15.0.5 --productPlatform=win64 --productAdobeCode={FM-15.0.5-64-ADBEADBEADBEADBEADBEADB} --isNonCCProduct=true --productName="Adobe FrameMaker (2019 release) 64 bit" --deleteuserPreferences=false

 

I hope this will be useful.
