How do i un-install Windows software remotely?

a couple of ways to uninstall windows programs other than add remove programs. mainly used for silent and unattended uninstalls.


  • use "wmic product get name" to find the exact installed name of the product
  • to uninstall type "wmic product where name ="" call uninstall

  • Open Regedit
  • find HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\current version\uninstall
  • this will list the string for uninstalling the product in verbose mode normally.
  • to find the silent install locate the exe as listed and query it with a \? swtich to find the silent install option ( more often than not it is /S)
