Disconnect Network Drive/ Unistall Software Batch File

Hi

Trying to write batch file that will disconnect a network drive and uninstall a program. I can uninstall the softwate from "Add/Remove Programs" but how do I do this from a batch file.

For the disconnect network drive i have the script below, but it keeps on asking for a confirmation to disconnect how can i make it so it just does it automaticatlly without a confirmation and of course how do I unninstall the software

This is the script so far:

net use q: /delete /persistent:yes

Thanks

The uninstall software part depends entirely on the software you are trying to uninstall.  If there's no ability to script it, then you're going to have a very difficult time doing this.

As for disconnecting the network drive, that's easy.

Try:

ECHO Y|NET USE Q: /DELETE

(Using persistent here is kinda pointless).

Hi,

I do it in this way...
Unmap Network drive silently, as given by Leew: ECHO Y|NET USE Q: /DELETE

To uninstall the program, you must first find the exact command line to do it.
It is available in the registry and you may need to modify it in order for the installation to become silent.

Uninstall registry keys are located here:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\APP\UninstallString
APP = The application name or ID to uninstall
UninstallString = Command to uninstall the application

Regards,
Zivko
