    perfect, any idea on how to get the Pirform apps removed, the default "C:\Program Files\CCleaner\uninst.exe" with and without /S doesn't appear to work and their command line info just shows the install method, not removal?

    Hi Iain,

    Which programs from Piriform. I'm able to silently uninstall CCleaner using the /S (uppercase) parameter.

    I just recently purchased PDQ Inventory license after using the trial and was able to uninstall software on our office's network. I need to uninstall a piece of old software from our entire inventory and it worked on my test machine with the trial and after I bought the license I now time out every time I try to uninstall the program. 

     

    It is Multi-Page TIFF Editor, for the record. Is there anything I need to do? I've even upped my timeout time and still it won't do it. If I check the remote computer's Task manager I can see that the uninstall is running, but it just never actually uninstalls..

     

    Thoughts, ideas? Disappointed we bought this software and now its not working as it was.

     

    Thanks,

    Hi Josh, will you send a screenshot to support@adminarsenal.com. I'd like to see what the uninstall string looks like. 

     

    Thanks - Shawn

    Hi Shane,

    need to remove CCleaner, Defraggler, Recuva and Speccy -- all 4 of the Piriform apps, some have been installed by those that have local install rights, but we have not authorised or approved the apps so i need a blanket method of removal.  The uninstall string appears to be valid from Inventory - "C:\Program Files\CCleaner\uninst.exe" with the /S added outside the quote, but the app doesn't seem to be removed (still get return code 0).  Re-scanning the system shows the app to still be present.

    Hi Iain,

    Go to one of the targets after you run the silent uninstall and see if the program still exists in C:\Program Files. If it doesn't then it may be installed in a user's directory as well. Also, when you rescan a computer are you running the Applications or Standard scan profiles?

    just running the application rescan, not the whole system.  according to our supplemental scans/report, the apps are installed in their default folders.

    very weird, but it now seems to be working (restarted the server we use for PDQ apps after upgrading them both up to the latest builds).  Apps un-installing fine with the /S added outside the quotes.

    thanks Shane.

    "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2015\Setup\en-us\Setup\Setup.exe" /Q /P {5783F2D7-E001-0000-0102-0060B0CE6BBA} /R ACAD /language en-US

     

    hey , I'm having an issue with a similar problem,

     

    when I try to uninstall autocad 2015 and put the above parameters , it returns code: 259

     

    any idea why? ( this command runs fine and uninstalls silent when running using start > run > on the local PC )
