Can you uninstall application X from multiple machines at a time?



  • Stephen Valdinger
    What application are you looking to uninstall? If it is an msi package, the /X parameter is pretty commonly used to uninstall it.

    msiexec.exe /x

    A quick google of command line install/uninstall should yield good results.

    Test this in a command line against a machine, and then just build a package with those command line parameters and deploy it to the machines you need, rather once or on a schedule.

    Hope that is helpful.

    Check one of the computers inventory and the uninstall command should be listed for the application. The only thing you have to do is make sure it has the proper switch/argument to run silently. Normally a quick google search will return the switch to use. You could also try running the uninstaller with /? to see if it will give you any info.

    Once you have the silent uninstall command you can just create a package and push it out to all the computers you want to have it uninstalled on.

    Another option without creating an uninstall package would be to just take the uninstall command, highlight all the computers you want it removed from in inventory and under tools > remote command. Send the command to all the selected computers.
