Silent uninstall before silent install

I have my silent install setup and running but some of the users are performing an upgrade not a fresh install so I was trying to create the batch file for them and I don't seem to be able to perform a silent uninstall before the install...


Is there a better method for handling this?  I created a command in my batch file which executes the uninstall but requires user intervention and I am trying to perform all of this without any user intervention.  I am using the /x after the setup.exe in the batch file.


Thanks for any help!

Re: Silent uninstall before silent install

I have tried this previously and could not achieve without user intervention so ended up writing a custom app to simulate the user steps.
