This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have software that i need to uninstall on a remote PC.  The problem is that the program got installed under the users profile folder (yea weird) and not program files folder.  It appears on about 50 pcs so, of course, the user folder name is different every time. How do i create a command string maybe with a username variable, to uninstall this program.

I think the main question is what the installer was? If that was an MSI, it should be very straight forward. If it was you may want to create an MSI that performs the uninstall thru ActiveSetup. This will work for every user profile regardless of what the user name is in the end.

It would be easier to help you if you specify the name of the software

It would have to be run in the logged in user's session for it to work, but you should be able to run the below command to silently uninstall.

C:\Users\%userprofile%\Appdata\Roaming\Spotify\uninstall.exe /S
