Hi,

(I've already a previous installation but I need to force install throw command line event if the same version is installed).

The installer options have not recently changed

BleachBit uses the NSIS installer, so you can use the standard NSIS options

Try /S for silent install

Hi,

I've done some tests.

the /S works only if no previous version is installed.

Have you tried uninstall.exe /S ? You can script this in a batch file with something like

if exist "c:\program files(x86\bleachbit\uninstall.exe" "c:\program files(x86\bleachbit\uninstall.exe" /S

It should be a solution but it will assume BleachBit previous installation path is known.
Or we must read in the registry to get installation path and then read the Uninstall string.

The /S parameter should be transfered from installer to uninstaller to avoid this problem no ?

BleachBit 1.5.2 beta fixes this. Please test
