Uninstall via rundll?

4 posts in this topic

Hi.

I tried to write a script that uses

"rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL appwiz.cpl"

to uninstall a special Programm (it has no seperate uninstaller.exe)

I dont know what to do next - the program is called "Gubernator" but I cannot reach it with a key kombination. Next I wanted to use a mouse action but what to do if there are different programs on different PCs? Any ideas what to do? The script should select the Program "Gubernator" in the software list and start the De-Installation automatically...

thanks,

White Rabbit

Check in the system registry under:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

and find the entry for Gubernator. It may appear as a key named Gubernator or you may have to go down the list of GUID-named subkeys and look at the DisplayName value to see which one is for Gubernator.

When you find the right key the UninstallString value is a commandline that you can call to remove the program.


Yes yes yes, there it was. Youth must go, ah yes. But youth is only being in a way like it might be an animal. No, it is not just being an animal so much as being like one of these malenky toys you viddy being sold in the streets, like little chellovecks made out of tin and with a spring inside and then a winding handle on the outside and you wind it up grrr grrr grrr and off it itties, like walking, O my brothers. But it itties in a straight line and bangs straight into things bang bang and it cannot help what it is doing. Being young is like being like one of these malenky machines.
