Applicability Rules and Uninstalls
HOWTO6126 says that "The applicability check is not used when uninstall command line is selected in Managed Delivery Policy"
However, I'm finding it it is. I use Applicabilty checks to check for NOT the same or newer version of the relevant executable. So a PC with the same or a newer version, of say, Silverlight, won't install our standard version. But this is stopping uninstalls. The detection check comes up "Detected" and the Applicability check "Not detected" and the uninstall doesn't run. The uninstall is set as an "Uninstall" command type and is the default uninstall command. This is through a Managed Software Delivery Policy specifically to uninstall the program.
The Detection and Applicabilty rules work for the install.
I'm using 7.1 SP2 with no hotfix update rollups.
I can change the Applicabilty rule to only detect newer and not the same version but surely I shouldn't have to if the product was working as described. Anyone else have any experience with this?
