Uninstall Software through WMI

2 posts in this topic

Hi,

I use the below code in vbs to remotely uninstall applications, however i would like to use autoit to do this.

I have had a look at scriptomatic and that only shows me how to check for installed applications

Here is the VB code:

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" _
    & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colSoftware = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("Select * from Win32_Product " _
        & "Where Name = 'Personnel database'")
For Each objSoftware in colSoftware
    objSoftware.Uninstall()
Next

I can convert all of it except for the "where name = 'software name'" part??

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

All you needed to do is add some $'s and change some functions..

$strComputer = "."
$objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:" _
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" _
    & $strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
$colSoftware = $objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("Select * from Win32_Product " _
        & "Where Name = 'Personnel database'")
For $objSoftware in $colSoftware
    $objSoftware.Uninstall()
Next

Dating a girl is just like writing software. Everything's going to work just fine in the testing lab (dating), but as soon as you have contract with a customer (marriage), then your program (life) is going to be facing new situations you never expected. You'll be forced to patch the code (admit you're wrong) and then the code (wife) will just end up all bloated and unmaintainable in the end.
