  Hi there,

    I have been trying to uninstall Oracle JDK 8 update 51 by using switches.But I couldn't able to do that. Can you guys please help about that?. 

jdk 8 update 51 is exe. It comes with Java SE runtime msi. I can able to uninstall java SE runtime, not jdk.

Thanks your time in advance

run regedit and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall and search for java,  keep searching till you find the key set for the java jdk in the name and look at the "UninstallString"= entry for the command.  If there is a /I in the command substitute a /x for the /i in the string and add a /qn at the end and you will have silent uninstall.

as an example if the uninstallsting is

MsiExec.exe /I{26A24AE4-039D-4CA4-87B4-2F83218051F0}

make it

MsiExec.exe /X{26A24AE4-039D-4CA4-87B4-2F83218051F0} /qn
