  • Uninstalling program(s) using VBScript

    Hi all,

    I have identified a program or set of programs installed on various workstaions with the aid of a script.

    Now I am trying to get the script to uninstall the program(s).

    Now the problem is that I haven't managed to really find any vbscript code so far which will help uninstall the program quietly.

    Anyone know how to do this or where I can find some sample vbscript code which is generic enough to uninstall a variety of programs?

        which programs are you trying to uninstall?, what are their names? many provide a silent option in their uninstaller. and anything what was installed with an msi file can be uninstalled quietly.

          Looks like it is sorted... plus the script can use the silent uninstall function if required.

            Various different types of programs would need uninstalling.

            Not all of them use msi, instead exe files. Not all of the programs place the silent uninstall information in the uninstall section of the registry.

            Otherwise, its all solved thanks.
