Silent Uninstall of EViews 8

Postby osti » Thu Apr 30, 2015 6:28 pm

Hi All,

We are looking at upgrading to version 9 using the standard setup.iss, we currently have version 8 installed and noticed that ver 9 does not upgrade ver 8 (sit side by side in program files) is there a way to silently uninstall version 8 or is there any upgrade path using the setup.iss file ?, We currently use SCCM 2012 (SMS) in our environment.

Thanks John

EViews 8 and 9 as far as the operating system is concerned are 2 separate products. So they can coexist on the same machine and therefore both can be in c:\program files.

To silently uninstall EViews 8, you would have create an uninstall.iss script. It is exactly the same procedure as when you created the original setup.iss for install script with the one exception that EViews is already installed.

When installing EViews 9, you will need to create a new setup.iss file specific to 9. You cannot reuse the EViews 8 setup.iss.
