    What exactly does "silently" mean? Is this different than using the Windows "Add/Remove Programs"?

    Oops, I should have clarified.

    I want to be able to run a command that would uninstall DB2 client without any user intervention, i.e. no mouse clicks, no keyboard input, etc.

    I am working on a project where I have to install and uninstall DB2 client on a Win2k machine without any user intervention. This could even be driven from another machine that would use cygwin to login to the windows machine and run an appropriate script.

    We figured out how to install DB2 client by running a command, but cannot find an equivalent command to uninstall.

    You might not want to expend too much effort on this, and just wait for version 8.2 which is scheduled to released late this year. This will allow for much easier distribute DB2 clients using a single executable (and also easily remove them).
