Summary

This technical note describes how to add and remove features and components in Reflection using Windows Control Panel utilities or using the MSI command line.

Add or Remove Programs or Features

To install or remove a component or feature in Reflection after the initial installation, follow these steps:

In Windows 7

From Control Panel,

  1. Click Programs > Programs and Features.
  2. Select the Reflection program from the list, and then select Change, Repair, or Uninstall.

In Windows Vista

From Control Panel,

  1. Click Program and Features.
  2. Select the Reflection program from the list and click Change from the menu at the top of the program list to change which components or features are installed.
  3. Click Uninstall to remove the program.

In Windows 2000 or Windows XP

Note: Beginning in Reflection 14.1, Windows 2000 is no longer supported.

From Control Panel,

  1. Click Add or Remove Programs.
  2. Click Change to open the package and change which components or features are installed.
  3. Click Remove to remove the program.

Using MSI Command Line to Add or Remove Features

After you have initially installed the product, you can use the MSI command line to add and remove features or components. Use the following command line syntax:

msiexec /i {product GUID} [property] [switch]

For example, to install Reflection for UNIX and OpenVMS quietly from Reflection Suite for X after the application's initial installation, use the following command:

msiexec /i {0E8949A6-CBBA-4AF6-B209-1C060164755E} ADDLOCAL=RUO /qb

The "ADDLOCAL=RUO" syntax is a comma delimited list of feature names assigned to the property 'ADDLOCAL'. Other useful properties are listed below:

REMOVE - to uninstall a feature
REINSTALL - to reinstall a feature completely
ADDSOURCE - to set a feature to 'run from network' (if allowed by its parent)
ADVERTISE - to advertise a feature (if allowed by the feature definition)

You can combine the properties above on a command line to add one feature and remove another. For example to add Reflection for ReGIS Graphics and remove Reflection for UNIX and OpenVMS, use the following command:

msiexec /i {807B1E68-FF69-4170-A835-E4B2C8A1D389} ADDLOCAL=RRG REMOVE=RUO

Removing a Product

You can also use the MSIExec command line to uninstall (remove) the product. Use the following syntax:

msiexec /x {product GUID}

This command will remove the product, independent of the original source location.
