Client Access Silent Uninstall

I can't work out how to do an unattended (silent) uninstall of iSeries Client Access 5.3. I can't call it using msiexec /uninstall, can't run setup and write to an iss file and the program I found that uninstalls (cwbinarp) doesn't seem to have any switches. Has anyone solved this problem/found better documentation that shows how to do it?

Did you try running the setup, selecting to remove components? I have not tried it using the silent install, but I think it will work.
A good resource for silent and tailored installations (albeit v5r2) is:

The setup doesn't seem to uninstall with the same switches as install (i.e. it doesn't write to an iss file).
Thanks for the link but as with the other IBM documents I've found there's no information on uninstalling except manually.

I've tried it again as you suggested and got some results this time - maybe I did something wrong the first time around. Thanks.
