How can I do a managed uninstall?

Hello all,

Just a quick question, so I can do a managed installation of a software package just fine. I just don't know how to do a managed uninstall of a software package?

Very similar to a Managed Install package.
Create a new MI, select your software, select "override default installation" and use the uninstall string (which should be indicated when you look up the software on your K1000) along with any switches you need.

Check the "uninstall" box 

Target your machines individually or with a label and Save

Here's an example that I use

  • Ah, I see I need to convince our network administrator to update our software lol! I think we are on 5.5 or something along those lines, and I am missing some of those options on this version. You have given me a good idea to try by creating a new MI and just running the uninstall parameter. Thank you for your help! - Jhogue 9 years ago
    • You're welcome. I created this one back on 5.3 so I guess a few things have changed along the way but you are correct. Creating a new MI and using the uninstall parameter will work. - rockhead44 9 years ago
