How do I remove an existing application?
The EverServe tool can offer a means for remote
application management. Often, an older version of an application
must be removed prior to installation of the latest version. This
document is intended to illustrate a process for remote removal
of an application.
Windows application uninstall:
The following package could be used to uninstall the Exceed application
after it has bee installed in the default location.
command-spec commandline = "c:\Program Files\Exceed
command-spec commandline = "rmdir /f /s /q 'c:\Program Files\Exceed'"
Another example of silent installation/uninstallation
of an application would be the McAfee VirusScan ASaP. To install
silently and without user interaction the package must copy the
vssetup.exe file and then execute it.
file-spec source="c:\temp\vssetup.exe" target="c:\mcafee\vssetup.exe"
command-spec commandline = "VSSETUP.exe /ck=abcde"
command-spec commandline = "c:\mcafee\vssetup.exe /Uninstall"
command-spec commandline = "rmdir /s /q /f vssetup.exe"
