Uninstall program im having

Recommended Posts


Okay script installs a app

then when it goes to uninstall it i can't use the uninstall string with _rundos cause the string changes the random number or letter.bin dir to so im using mouseclick to goto add remove prrograms, and this works great if app is there but if by some chance the app didn't install it trys to uninstall whatever is usually in its place which doesnt get installed cause mouseclicks are different location but when script continues there is a box blocking the screen so scrip just hangs all night

so is there a if program exsist in add remove programs then

uninstall process

end if

if so what would be the correct code for that

I've encountered this as well, though mostly remote machines in my case. You might try something similar to what is below; it works for me on anything installed through an MSI or Setup.exe. It does NOT work on what I like to call "crap apps" like toolbars that will not allow you to do silent uninstalls. I also use the second script to give me a quick view of what is installed on a remote machine, if you just want to see what's there. One of these days I'll get around to combining the two, to give a more visual representation rather than having to go through each application looking for the one you want:

Remote Uninstall:

;get remote computer name

$sMachine = InputBox("Computer name?", "Uninstall Remote Application")

;get admin credentials
Dim $sAdminUser, $sPassword
$sAdminUser = ("[color="#ff0000"][b]Your Username[/b][/color]")
$sPassword = ("[color="#ff0000"][b]Your Password[/b][/color]")

;get a WMI Locator
Dim $oLocator
$oLocator = ObjCreate("WbemScripting.SWbemLocator")

;connect to the remote machine
Dim $oService, $oLocator
$oService = $oLocator.ConnectServer($sMachine, "root\cimv2", _
    $sAdminUser, $sPassword)

;get a list of installed products

Dim $sMsg, $sName
$cProducts = $oService.ExecQuery("SELECT * " & _
 "FROM Win32_Product")
For $oProduct in $cProducts
    $sMsg = MsgBox(4, "Product: " & $oProduct, "Would you like to uninstall: " & $oProduct.Name & "?")

    If $sMsg = 6 Then
        $sName = $oProduct.Name

;Get the named package
$cProducts = $oService.ExecQuery("SELECT * " & _
"FROM Win32_Product WHERE Name = '" & _
$sName & "'")

For $oProduct in $cProducts

    ;uninstall it
    MsgBox(0, "Uninstall Complete.", "Uninstalled " & $sName)


Enumerate Remote Apps (Completed only with the help of AutoIT Forum Members. Thanks!):

#include <Array.au3>

$Computer = InputBox( "Enter Asset Tag", "What machine would you like to connect to?" )

$ret = _SoftwareInfo()
_ArrayDisplay($ret, '')

Func _SoftwareInfo($s_RemoteComputer = $Computer)
    Local $Count = 1
    If $s_RemoteComputer <> '' Then $s_RemoteComputer = '\\' & StringReplace($s_RemoteComputer, '\', '') & '\'      
    Local Const $regkey = $s_RemoteComputer & 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall'
    While 1
        $key = RegEnumKey ($regkey, $Count)
        If @error <> 0 then ExitLoop
        $line = RegRead ($regkey & '\' & $key, 'Displayname')
        $line = StringReplace ($line, ' (remove only)', '')

        If $line <> '' Then
            If Not IsDeclared('avArray') Then Dim $avArray[1]
            ReDim $avArray[UBound($avArray) + 1]
            $avArray[UBound($avArray) - 1] = $line
        $Count = $Count + 1

    If Not IsDeclared('avArray') Or Not IsArray($avArray) Then
        Return(SetError(1, 0, ''))     
        $avArray[0] = UBound($avArray) - 1
        Return(SetError(0,0, $avArray))

√-1 2^3 ∑ π, and it was delicious!
