Xmetal Author Enterprise 8 silent uninstall/unregisterJune 12, 2014 at 4:58 pmParticipants 0Replies 1Last Activity 8 years, 3 months ago
I am looking at creating a silent uninstaller for Xmetal Author Enterprise 8 to run before a silent Xmetal Author Enterprise 9 install but want to make sure Xmetal 8 “unregisters” itself so we don't lose our licenses since we are a “per seat” licensing model. Would really rather not have to hit 50 machines and un-register manually before running the uninstaller. Will this syntax unregister the 8.0 install as well as uninstall the software setup.exe /s /v”qn REMOVE=ALL”? Or is there something else I need to throw into the uninstall script?
Thanks!Derek Read June 17, 2014 at 8:31 pm

Unfortunately, there is no way to unregister XMetaL Author (7 or 8) silently during an uninstall.
The good news is that with version 9 you won't have to unregister any longer, and that the licensing scheme is different, so if you are going from 8 to 9 you can get away with not unregistering anything. Version 9 still requires activation but it is not tracked and not affected by any version 7 or 8 registrations.
The only reason you would want to unregister 8 in this situation is if you might have some people that wish to continue to use 8 (or 7).
