automated / unattended UNINSTALL - Solidworks 2006

Discussion created by Christina Danley on Aug 25, 2008
Hey everyone, my company is getting ready to move to SW 2008 and we're looking for a way to automatically uninstall Solidworks 2006. I've created a Group Policy computer startup script that uninstalls PDMWorks, eDrawings (several versions), and Solidworks in that order but Solidworks does not uninstall.

I've tried logging the uninstall using the msiexec uninstall feature but it does not tell me anything useful.

HOWEVER, if I log is as a domain admin and run my script manually, everything works just fine...

Any help you all can provide would be great, thanks in advance.
