Hi,

Looks like the console mode un-installation does not work as expected (at least on windows)

I have the Uninstaller UI mode set to which is GUI by default.

When I install on windows in console mode, the uninstaller seems being set to "Silent" instead of "console" !!!!
There is maybe a known issue? I didn't check.

The workaround is to execute the uninstaller with "-i console" option.

I did not check this on linux ... I guess it is well working. Is it ?

In InstallAnywhere 2008 (uninstall.lax), there was this setting which seems to be removed in IA2009 ....
