Remote Install of a Computer Associates Product

I'm using Psexec to install some software and I've gotten it to work with most .exe programs using
psexec \\%var% -s cmd /c c:\%Var2% /q
(the 1st var is the computer name and then 2nd var is the software name).

I'm trying to run the CA cleanup tool which calls the CA installer the /q isn't working because its getting hung up on the next button.  Is there a command switch for this?

I've tried /PS- , /q /sn nothing working.

OK I found the commands however, I need to find a way to pause until each one is finished uninstalling.  Can that be done?

@echo off
set /p var= Enter Computer Name:


psexec \\%var% -s cmd /c MsiExec.exe /X {62ADA55C-1B98-431F-8618-CDF3CE4CFEEC} /QN
psexec \\%var% -s cmd /c MsiExec.exe /X {624FA386-3A39-4EBF-9CB9-C2B484D78B29} /QN
psexec \\%var% -s cmd /c MsiExec.exe /X {501C99B9-1644-4FC2-833B-E675572F8929} /QN
psexec \\%var% -s cmd /c MsiExec.exe /X {84288555-A79E-4ABD-BA53-219C4D2CA20B} /QN

Hi.

Put the msiexec-part into a batch and have psexec launch that. That way, those commands will get executed one by one.
