ArcGIS Data Reviewer can be uninstalled without a user interface (UI) by running the setup using Windows Installer command line parameters.

  1. Open the command prompt window.
  2. Enter the following command:
    msiexec /x <{Product code}> /<Method>

If you are uninstalling on Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows 2008 Server, you must have elevated privileges.

There are three different method switches you can use:

  • /qb, which provides a basic UI with a progress bar and error handling

Only one method can be used at a time.
