Remove a program from Add or Remove Programs

2 posts in this topic

I am very new to programming in general and Windows scripting in particular and am looking for some knowlegeable advise. I am trying to put together a script that will look for a program(s) in the Windows appwiz.cpl (Add or Remove Programs Control Panel) and automatically remove it with minimal user interaction. I am certain AutoIt can do this, but I am looking for some gracious newbie "hand-holding" to get my feet wet. Any takers?

So far, I have discovered how to start the appwiz.cpl within a script using "Run", but I cannot figure out how to single out a program entry and "point and click" on the "Remove" button. If I can get that far, I have some ideas of how to proceed beyond that point.

Thanks in advance!
