Silent Uninstall of Construct2

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Dec 01, 2015 2:00 pm

Hi,

I'm a school Network Manager. I have silently installed a licensed copy of Construct2 r168 to a number of Desktops across school using Microsoft SCCM. I now want to replace that with version 216. However, even when using the /VERYSILENT command line option, I still get prompted to uninstall the old version before continuing. I have also looked for a way to silently uninstall Construct2 (so that I can run an uninstall of r168 using SCCM and then run a new install of r216) but that option doesn't seem to exist either

Can someone tell me how I can silently upgrade version r168 to r216?

Thanks,
Keith.

I'm no expert but just an idea. Can't you just uninstall it on one pc e.g. your's then install the new version then just take the files C:\Program Files\Construct 2 and then just delete the directories on the remote computers and then just place the updated C:\Program Files\Construct 2 onto those computers? If you get what I mean?

C2 will run off a USB memory stick, so the suggestion from MalizaGames should work.

Might also be worth tagging @Ashley to see if there is a better option for this type of install.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

You could try uninstalling it from all computers first (which I think can be done silently), then reinstalling (which should not prompt as it was already uninstalled). Alternatively as pointed out, the install is portable - you can install it on one machine, find some way to copy the install directory to all the machines (and probably a couple of shortcuts), and it will work on all of them. The installer just moves files around.

This worked for me: "C:\Program Files\Construct 2\unins000.exe" /SILENT
