Hi Jeff,

while that will work it will only work if you have used that same installer. If the Lite driver is installed as a component of the Editor it will not be listed as it's own product and can't be uninstalled by itself from the command line. You would need to use Programs and Features in the GUI to do it.

This does raise the question of why you want to do that. Maybe there is a another way to achieve what you need.

I have a license to distribute Lite Driver.

Where are the docs that list all the command line switch for both the Lite driver and the API driver?

Also what's the uninstall command line switch for the PDFX5SA_sm.exe?

/UNINSTALL

doesn't see to work.

Hi Jeff,

the switches for the standard driver .msi installers are here: https://help.tracker-software.com/pdfxs ... ers_s.html and the .exe here: https://help.tracker-software.com/pdfxs ... ers_s.html

Note that the .exe installers use an exe wrapper around an embedded .msi and cannot pass any of the "Standard Properties" to the .msi. It can only pass "Product Specific Properties". As such I would recommend using the .msi where possible.

We do not publish the switches for Lite. Please email me at support@tracker-software.com and we will further that discussion.

Regards the redistributable, this is what Ivan had to say:
this installer based on inno setup, so, he has to use uninst0000.exe from the folder where the product was installed
I hope that helps.
