I am using C# to programmatically uninstall another application (see topic ID: 20926840). The Windows Installer, unfortunately, decides to show a confirmation box saying "Are you sure you want to uninstall this product". Is there any way to hide this or select yes in my application?

Ok, thanks. The final working line is "msiexec /uninstall {F7D62431-DDAA-48BA-BEEA-5548F4C559D1} /quiet". It did not work with /x at all.
