Cannot uninstall kb

10 posts in this topic

Been stuck for several hours trying to uninstall a kb.  From the command prompt, it works fine:

cd c:

then,

C:WindowsSystem32wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:xxxxxxx /quiet /norestart

Wusa does its thing, finds the kb, after the wusa process is done restart the pc, and its gone.

For the autoit scripts Ive tried:

ShellExecute("wusa.exe" & '/uninstall /kb:xxxxxxx /quiet /norestart')

No luck ^

$wusa = @WindowsDir & "\System32\wusa.exe"
Run($wusa & " /uninstall /kb:xxxxxxx /quiet /norestart")

No luck ^

$cmd = "wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:xxxxxxx /quiet /norestart"
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $cmd, @WindowsDir & "\System32", @SW_HIDE)

No luck ^

;FileCopy(@ScriptDir & '\kbuninstall.cmd', "C:\Temp")
;Sleep(5000)
;RunWait('C:\Temp\kbuninstall.cmd', '', @sw_hide)

^ Even tried running both .cmd and .bat files locally

$x = RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c C:\Windows\System32\wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:xxxxxxx /quiet /norestart", @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE)
MsgBox(0, "", $x)

No luck on this either, although it does bomb out with error code -2147418113 which appears to be a "catastrophic failure," (lol) similar to this link:  https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/systemcenter/en-US/a218e294-b0e6-4b26-80a9-4eef72476fff/wusaexe-uninstall-and-sccm?forum=configmgrsum

Searched up and down, never seen anything like it.

If your OS is a 64 bits, you can try to use the native x64 system32 directory by using @WindowsDir & "sysnative"  :

$wusa = @WindowsDir & "\SystemNative\wusa.exe"
Run($wusa & " /uninstall /kb:xxxxxxx /quiet /norestart")

Not really sure ..

I think you need #RequireAdmin on top of your script


Heroes, there is no such thing

One day I'll discover what IE.au3 has of special for so many users using it.
C'mon there's InetRead and WinHTTP, way better

I do have #RequireAdmin at the top, sorry for not mentioning!

If your OS is a 64 bits, you can try to use the native x64 system32 directory by using @WindowsDir & "sysnative"  :

This specific issue relates to running a .cmd/bat through ComSpec with a 32bit compiled .EXE on 64bit OS. In this case, Windows will use the cmd.exe in Syswow.

@OP try compile your AutoIT.exe in x64 architecture if you are using Windows x64.

Fantastic, that did it.  I did not even think about that.  You rock!  Thanks!

then just disabling redirection should work as well?

DllCall("kernel32.dll", "int", "Wow64DisableWow64FsRedirection", "int", 1)

Simple Fix try to add to your script one little line to that is missing.

#RequireAdmin ;~ this is whats missing UAC is not allowing the command to run.

ShellExecute("wusa.exe" & '/uninstall /kb:xxxxxxx /quiet /norestart')

UAC is blocking you, this is why its not working. 

I hope this works... let me know ...
