Spotify (per user) uninstall package / Request or share plz.
Multiple users had they chance to install spotify in our enviroment. Not allowed anymore (they can use web-version)
Is there a nice PDQ or PS way to bulk uninstall them from +1000 machines
Open up any of the machines that has it installed. Go to applications. Right click on the Spotify app and choose Create uninstall package in PDQ deploy.
Now create a group in PDQ Inventory of all computers with Spotify installed. Start a deployment of the uninstall package applied to that group.
Trick is that it is in userprofile .. and that varies between +2000 usernames I know how to make uninstall package, but does it work in this case?
We have a command step that runs this as logged in user:
C:\Users%username%\AppData\Roaming\Spotify\Spotify.exe /uninstall /silent
But you can look and see in the application uninstall paths to see if yours differ.
The application installs to the %appdata% location, and needs to be removed using the logged on user.
We also have the same problems with applications that are installed by the users in their accounts.
An example like this i the Zoom video conference application, that have several security breaches :-(
I would be nice with a solution for removing those applications.
Please post any future package requests in the Package Library Requests section of the forum: https://help.pdq.com/hc/en-us/community/topics/200736147-Package-Library-Requests-PDQ-Deploy
