There is a documented procedure to install the DOORS client in silent mode and when you install a new DOORS client the old one is automatically uninstalled.
But, since the release 9.6.1, DOORS client is only a 64 bit application. That means if you have a DOORS client 32 bit installed, installing a new DOORS client 64 bit won't uninstall automatically the old release.

To uninstall DOORS client 32 bit in silent mode, you need first to find the GUID of your release. To find the GUID, you can use WMIC, here is a sample script (.bat) to retrieve that information:

Once you get the GUID, you can use this command to uninstall your DOORS client:
