Remove program from Control Panel

4 posts in this topic

I need to remove a program from control panel. I searched through this site and found few suggestions to uninstall a software using registry key or silent uninstall or uninstall.exe

I do not want to remove a program with above mentioned options. Is there any way to remove a program from control panel?

You can use WMI:

strComputer = "."

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _

& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!" _

& strComputer & "rootcimv2")

Set colSoftware = objWMIService.ExecQuery _

("Select * from Win32_Product " _

& "Where Name = 'Personnel database'")

For Each objSoftware in colSoftware

objSoftware.Uninstall()

Next

This is a VB script but it can be easily onverted to AutoIT

Hi, lawrence1981. Just to clarify, are you wanting to remove it from the control panel, but not uninstall the application (e.g. make it invisible to Add/Remove Programs)?
