11gr2 De-Install 11gr2 auto exit in silent mode

Hi All,
I am able to uninstall Oracle 11gr2 successfully with the silent mode. But it does not exits the deinstall command prompt after completion, I have to manually type Exit command. What I want is without any user intervention it should exit automatically after completion. I am using the following command to call deinstall:
"\Oracle\deinstall\deinstall.bat -silent" . Also i have edited the deinstall.rsp.tmpl.
Any suggestions will be helpful.

Thanks

    Use the "-nowait" flag - http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/em.112/e12255/c_oui_appendix.htm#BABGHAIA

    Hi Srini,
    Thanks for your reply.
    I used "-nowait" flag but still the problem is not getting resolved. The command window still waits for the user to exit the command prompt.
    I believe with deinstall.bat "-nowait" flag does not works.

    You are correct - the nowait flag is for the installer.

    Have you tried the "-silent" flag ? What does command "deinstall -help" show ?

    Hi Srini,
    Yes I am using "-silent" flag.
    "\Oracle\deinstall\deinstall.bat -silent"

    I could not find any flag like "-nowait" flag in "deinstall.bat -help".
    Output which I am getting for "deinstall.bat -help" is:-

    Hi All,
    I got the problem resolved :). Had to edit deinstall.bat and add exit in it at the end. I guess Exit command is missing in deinstall.bat provided with Oracle 11g r2.
    Thanks to Srini for his suggestions.
