Uninstall script / tool

Hi,

 

I'm looking for a script / tool that will assist me in un-installing FCS 9.x and FSAV for servers 9.

The current tool works great in uninstalling, but unfortunately it reboots the machine without warning when running it silent.

 

Can someone please help?

Hi R4gman,

 

Use UI Tool with the "-noreboot" switch (no quotes). Mind you installing any F-Secure product after using this option without performing the reboot, can cause problems.

 

Best Regards,
Peter

Hello Peter,

 

you are partically right Robot tongue but! please be sure to read the scritp/tool documentation. UITool using for Server systems are working fine in many cases but not everytime.

 

F-Secure dont support using this tool for uninstall AV/CS systems from servers or 64bit Windows XP.

But as I wrote its working in many cases Smiley Happy

@R4gman: why do you need to uninstall V9?

Re: Uninstall script / tool

A client of ours wants to use a third party software to do deployment with.

They also would like to use the software for a backout plan for incas esomthing goes installations/upgrades.

it looks like there app does not like it when another tool/proccess reboots the machine.

 

I can't seem to get the -noreboot to work.

Tripple post FTW....

 

Even after downbloading UITool Version 3.0 build 1440. it still reboots the workstation.

The command I ran was UITool.exe -silent -noreboot

Re: Uninstall script / tool

try these:

 

1. "-a --noreboot"
   New command line switch is implemented "-a --noreboot" (without
   quotes) IMPORTANT note: all files being processed by UT with
   "--noreboot" switch stay on your hard drive until you reboot
   computer, use only if you know what you're doing and do it with
   extreme caution. This switch is not shown in usage help. Remember:
   installing any F-Secure product after using this build on
   Uninstallation Tool before host reboot may lead to unpredictable
   result!!!

2. "-s" silent

Awesome, it works.

What's the -a for?

I see the machine reboots without it.
