Uninstalling from Add/Remove Programs

Recommended Posts


can I write the registry entries to HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ ?

Keys are: DisplayIcon, DisplayName, NoModify, NoRepair, UninstallString.

Point the UninstallString key to the uninstall script that I create.

I'd like to be able to list compiled scripts in the Add/Remove Programs under WindowsXP.

Yes, you can..

$var = "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Your programs name"
RegWrite( $var, "DisplayName", "REG_SZ", "title")
RegWrite( $var, "DisplayVersion", "REG_SZ", "1.0")
RegWrite( $var, "UninstallString", "REG_SZ", "rundll32.exe advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection " & @scriptdir & "\programs name.inf ,UnInstall")
RegWrite( $var, "Publisher", "REG_SZ", "your name")
RegWrite( $var, "URLInfoAbout", "REG_SZ", "http://???")
RegWrite( $var, "DispalyIcon", "REG_SZ", "Icon or exe name")
RegWrite( $var, "NoRepair", "REG_DWORD", "00000001")
RegWrite( $var, "NoModify", "REG_DWORD", "00000001")
RegWrite( $var, "InstallLocation", "REG_SZ", @scriptdir)
..and so on.
