Hi Admin,

I am new in Altiris. I know it is more expensive and better software than SCCM. But their i am facing one problem while uninstalling the software from our network. It required the .msi full package of that aoftware which it required to uninstall. It is big challenge because every software not have a single exe file, 80% software are set of multiple fie on that time we are getting  lot of manual effort like - find the software to make a bundle and after that convert in msi format. If it possible then make some changes on this portion and if possible then provide these type of add on tools to make the work easy.

Hope you understand.

Thanks in Advance.

if you are just looking to uninstall a standard.msi application, look up its uninstall string in the registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall and search for the application name. once you find it, create a .bat or cmd file with this command  msiexec.exe /x {0077A7C7-3333-2222-1111-111111111000} . Create a task in altiris with that command and target your computers.
