Update to ACS install

When performing an ACS uninstall we would like to have the option to suppress the attached message to user.

    Yes, we understood that this is for uninstall. However, the referenced case TS015705524 states:
    "We are upgrading users to ACS, during the uninstall we are trying to repress the attached message."
    So we would like to understand why you think you need to do an uninstall before doing an upgrade.

    This is for an uninstall, not an install. We would just like to see it run silent by removing that message.

    Thank you for submitting your Idea to enhance IBM i Access Client Solutions (ACS). We have looked at the referenced Case (TS015705524) which indicates you are doing an upgrade. Since an upgrade can be easily done without the need to do an uninstall, we would like to understand why you are first doing an uninstall.
