Uninstalling and Deleting Active X controls and DLLs

Recommended Posts


In Windows you can navigate to the C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files folder, right click on an object you want to remove and click on remove. This action unistalls and deletes the control. I am trying to do the same thing with an Autoit script. I tried the below. It unregisters the objects, but does not delete them. They then show up in the folder as unknown objects. Is there a way to do this correctly?

ShellExecuteWait("C:\Windows\system32\regsvr32.exe", '-u "C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files\abraControllerPod111.dll"')
ShellExecuteWait("C:\Windows\system32\regsvr32.exe", '-u "C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files\abraControls111.OCX"') 
FileDelete("C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files\abraControllerPod111.dll")
FileDelete("C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files\abraControls111.OCX")
