Uninstalling Using WMIC RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi to you all. I have been trying to unintall a program using the wmic in the commands promt, but it was to no avail.

    I was with the impression that using the wmic to uninstall a program will wipe away the program totally from your system. Is it true? If so please help me completely uninstall a program from my system. I use windows 7

  • What command are you using? I would expect that wmic wouldn't do anything different than look up the registered uninstallation program for the application, and launch it...

  • Hello,

    Did you try executing WMIC from a command-prompt with elevated privileges?
