Wscript to look for uninstall
During the uninstall of an old version, it leaves behind few files and folders. This uninstall is taken care by the SCCM of the old packge. I have the new version to install before which these files need to be deleted.
Plz can someone tell me how I can do this with the wscript, where I first need to check if the uninstall of previous is successful ( what do I look for ), and if so then proceed with the removal of the files and then proceed to the installation.
I would create a script to tidy up the Junk (Folders/Files) test it does what you want it to do. Then create a SCCM Task Sequence (TS) which
- Uninstalls old SCCM package
- Runs script to tidy up junk
- Installs new client
TS is pretty much bullet proof and the TS will only move onto the next task after the previous one has been completed, plenty of options available re error handling and coding. Perfect for doing multiple tasks in a controlled manner.
