Look in Resource Manager for one of the PCs at the AddRemoveProgram inventory and see if there's an UninstallPath listed for that program, you might be able to run that.

You could try and run setup.exe /? to find what sort of command line parameters it supports.

setup.exe /u /r:n

(Uninstall, reboot never) is worth a try.

Hi vinayak patil,

Maybe this info could help you:

"When you use the Visual Basic 5.0 Application Setup Wizard or the Visual Basic 6.0 Package and Deployment Wizard to create an application distribution set, you can perform a silent install and uninstall of the application through the use of command-line arguments. 

The following command-line syntax allows for a silent uninstall:

St6unst -n "C:\Program Files\MyApp\St6unst.log" -f -q
NOTE: You must use the quotation marks when there is a space in the path or file name.

These command lines use the version-specific uninstall executable files with the -n switch, which allows the uninstall executable to run from a command line."

Using Altiris you can execute this command-line remotely using one of the following:

- Run Script task

- Quick Delivery

- Managed Delivery

- PcAnywhere (Remote Acess)
