Calling the uninstall.exe from another process

I’m building a Windows installer for my application, in which I use DjangoStack.

During the uninstallation process, I have to execute DjangoStack’s uninstall.exe first, and then do various things.

The problem is that my uninstaller is not waiting for the DjangoStack’s uninstaller to finish, because DjangoStack’s uninstaller calls a child process to do the job.

I’m already aware of the —mode unattended (found it with uninstall.exe —help), but I would like to know if there are any other options I can give to the DjangoStack’s uninstaller in order to execute it as it is, without it calling any child process ?

PS : I already tried to copy the DjangoStack’s uninstaller in a TEMP folder, and to execute it there : same problem.

Thank you for your answer,

Maybe you can run form a different command prompt until the uninstallation process finishes. Try “cmd.exe \C uninstall.exe —mode unatteded”
