    Hello I work in a corporate environment and I want to make sure that no one has this software on their machine if we have left it on by accident. I want to add a silent uninstaller to our startup scripts...

    Does acronis have a command line switch for silent uninstall please?

    Most of us will be happy if the software just works. What about the old "string on the finger" thing. :cool: :cool: or a modern day equivalent - a big sticky reminder on the box.

    yes it does i haven,t used it but i do silent install as you must extract the .msi file first you can do that with acronis installer run it but dont install click on help.
    This is what i have for install to give you some idea:
    REM     NOTES: Extracted
    REG ADD %KEY%\iAdd /VE /D "Acronis Trueimage Home v9.0.0.3677" /f
    REG ADD %KEY%\iAdd /V Inum /D "CMD /C Start /Wait msiexec.exe /I %SystemDrive%\APPS\Acronis_TrueImage9\AcronisTrueImage.msi PIDKEY=\"xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx\" /qn /norestart" /f
    REG ADD %KEY%\iAdd /V Inum /D "CMD /C Start /Wait SLEEP.EXE 3" /f
    REG ADD %KEY%\iAdd /V Inum /D "Pskill.exe msiexec.exe" /f
    REG ADD %KEY%\iAdd /V Inum /D "CMD /C DEL \"%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Desktop\Acronis True Image Home 9.0.lnk\"" /f
    REG ADD %KEY%\iAdd /V Inum /D "CMD /C DEL \"%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Acronis True Image Home 9.0.lnk\"" /f
    Insert your serial number here xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx
    as you can see this is for version 9 will work with 10
