hi, im making a rudimentary dos app, (just entering the world of programing), and for the uninstall section, I want it to remove all the files and folders installed with the program.  I have heard that there is an undocumented quiet switch, and i was wondering if anyone could tell me what the quiet switch is?  thanx.

Hi, blackc,

I don't know this hidden switch you are asking for. But I can suggest you to use the form

deltree /y directory_name >NUL

This works just like there would have been applied a quiet switch with the command.
