I was trying to uninstall iTunes 12 using a VBscript (the KACE uninstall configuration script did not work. It used to for 11, but that's a different topic).
Running the script by calling cscript.exe \uninstallitunes.vbs works.

Directory: SYS
File: cscript.exe
Parameters: $(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)\uninstallitunes.vbs
