This is a silent installer for Bloomberg.

  name="Bloomberg Professional Software"
  <check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Bloomberg, V.11.07.05" />
  <check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Bloomberg Report Viewer (CR)" />
  <check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Bloomberg PFM Upload Tool for Microsoft Excel" />
  <check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Bloomberg DDE Server" />
  <install cmd='%SOFTWARE%\bloomberg\sotrt1107.exe /s' />
  <upgrade cmd='%SOFTWARE%\bloomberg\sotrt1107.exe /s' />
  <remove cmd='Thereisnoremovecommandthatworks' />

Currently there is no way to silently remove Bloomberg software from the machine. I have tried every UNWISE.exe switch there is to no avail. I have lodge multiple calls with Bloomberg tech support about this. Their 'Install' reps have no clue what i am on about. If anyone knows how to do this please let me know.

It installs fine however, and you can install new versions right over the top of the old ones fine as well.
