    Hey all,

    Was wondering what you guys use to uninstall apps on workstations from the server, instead of going RDP.


    Thanks,

    For the most part I do RDP, but some applications have command line support and some even support doing this remotely (i.e. from the command prompt on the server and using the host for a target). But, honestly, application un-installs are probably best done from the individual workstation.

    In areas where I have to do a lot, what I will do is write a custom executable that the users can run which will silently un-install, and also clean up registry entries, program groups and folders/files, etc.

    Last 6-8 months have become very good with a tool case WISE - amazing stuff but rediculously priced for you I would assume (my job bought it).
