It might help to know what is the software's name?

Subject: [gptalk] GPO .msi installation wont uninstall..

Hello all - slight dilemma…



Some time ago, I pushed an .msi installation via Computer Configuration > 
Software 

Settings > Software Installation within one of my GPO’ which consequently 
worked 

fine… 



However, the GPO was deleted and now I want to remove the software from my 
client 

machines. I scripted an msiexec.exe command using the /x & /passive switch 
pointing 

to the original .msi file wihtin a network share which should take care of 
things 

nicely (pushed using startup script). But, the un-installation script won’t 
work 

because the original .msi package must have been built with “install for this 
user 

only” – which now consequently wont let you uninstall \ view it within 
Add\Remove 

programs despite what permissions you have on the client!



Any ideas how this should be tackled – which account would GP have used to 
install 

the original .msi? 



Cheers



Ray
