Hi,

I am installing Jaspersoft Studio on Windows 8.1 64 bits French with the following commandline
TIBCOJaspersoftStudio-6.3.0.final-windows-installer-x86_64.exe /S

The software will be deploy under %programfiles% (this is for 64 bits and its correct) but the registry key to uninstall will be the following

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\TIBCO Jaspersoft Studio-6.3.0.final.exe]
"DisplayName"="TIBCO Jaspersoft Studio 6.3.0.final"
"UninstallString"="C:\\Program Files\\TIBCO\\Jaspersoft Studio-6.3.0.final\\uninst.exe"
"DisplayIcon"="C:\\Program Files\\TIBCO\\Jaspersoft Studio-6.3.0.final\\Jaspersoft Studio.exe"
"DisplayVersion"="6.3.0.final"
"URLInfoAbout"="http://community.jaspersoft.com/project/jaspersoft-studio"
"Publisher"="TIBCO Software Inc."

So this is the 32 bits of the registry.
I tried an uninstall and it was working. This is strange as the 32 bits registry parts should not know about 64 bits directory.

Thanks,

Hi Francois,

thank you for your post. The installation script is created with NSIS and we currently use the same uninstall key for both 32 and 64 bits. What should be the proper uninstall key on a 64 bits machine?

Thank you

Giulio

Hi,

This is 32 bits:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\TIBCO Jaspersoft Studio-6.3.0.final.exe]

This is for 64 bits:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\TIBCO Jaspersoft Studio-6.3.0.final.exe]

Thanks,

Francois
