    Scott,

    I'll submit it as a request. Until then uninstalling DWG TrueView isn't actually that bad if you know where to look. You can uninstall it using MSI like other software, for some reason they just haven't added this to their uninstall string.

    For example If you manually go to the uninstall path in registry.

    "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\DWG TrueView 2017 - English"

    You can find the MSI GUID in the uninstall string (This is what Inventory shows).

    "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\DWG TrueView 2017 - English\Setup\en-us\Setup\Setup.exe" /P {28B89EEF-0028-0409-0100-CF3F3A09B77D} /M AOEM /language en-US"

    Take the GUID and add it to a normal MSI uninstall command.

    "MsiExec.exe /qn /norestart /X{28B89EEF-0028-0409-0100-CF3F3A09B77D}"

    That will uninstall Autodesk DWG TrueView 2017 21.0.104.0 64bit.

    As Nate said, you have to retrieve the MSI GUID from that command and create a new one.

    The GUID from your command is {5783F2D7-F028-0409-0100-0060B0CE6BBA}.

    Plugging that into the command from Nate's comment gives this:

    msiexec /qn /norestart /X{5783F2D7-F028-0409-0100-0060B0CE6BBA}

    Thanks this works great. I created an uninstall package for 2015 and nested it in a few different packages.
