Remove AutoCad LT 2019


I am new to PDQ and am trying to create a deployment to both remove our old version of 2019 AutoCad LT and add the new 2020. I believe I have the 2020 set up (have successfully deployed) but am running in to getting 2019 removed through powershell.

Anyone have any experience with dealing with AutoCad LT removal?

  • Hi,

    If you look at the pc in PDQ Invertory, go to applocations, find AutoCad LT 2019 and look at the uninstall string. Choose to uninstall the app but delete most of the command apart from the part between the brackets like {28B89EEF-2009-0000-0102-CF3F3A09B77D}

    Then change it to say something like - MsiExec.exe /qn /norestart /X{28B89EEF-2009-0000-0102-CF3F3A09B77D}

    and run that.

    I have used this to remove it on 5 pc's and then used the deploy mode to push out 2020. You may want to also remove the old material library's and other installed 2019 apps as well.


  • I never could find the uninstall for 2019 LT but I may have missed it. Let me check it again.

  • This is what I use to remove it, I don't remember what versions its for but you can edit

     "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD LT 2017\Setup\en-us\Setup\Setup.exe" /P {28B89EEF-0009-0000-0102-CF3F3A09B77D} /R 
     ACADLT /language en-US /W /qb
     MsiExec.exe /qn /norestart /X{3FBFBC43-9882-43FA-B979-2D53896747B3}
     MsiExec.exe /qn /norestart /X{8FB9F735-D64C-4991-8D91-4CDDAB1ABDEE}
     MsiExec.exe /qn /norestart /X{8ED2ED41-4455-449D-993C-751C039089B9}
     taskkill /F /IM "AdAppMgr.exe" 
     net stop AdAppMgrSVC 
     RD %Programdata%\Autodesk\SDS /S /Q 
     call "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Autodesk Shared\AppManager\R1\removeAdAppMgr.exe" --mode unattended
  • Thanks I'll give it a try, based on the path I'd say this is for 2017.
