Msiexec /f {ProductCode}

If you don't know the ProductCode then save the following script as a ".vbs" file, and then drag/drop a copy of the MSI used to install Acrobat Reader onto the script.

Const msiOpenDatabaseModeDirect = 2

Set oInst = CreateObject("WindowsInstaller.Installer")

sDBPath = Wscript.Arguments(0)

Set oDB = oInst.OpenDataBase(sDBPath, msiOpenDatabaseModeDirect)

sQuery = "SELECT `Value` FROM `Property` WHERE `Property` = 'ProductCode'"

Set oView = oDB.OpenView(sQuery)


Set oRecord = oView.Fetch

InputBox "ProductCode is the following:", "PRODUCT CODE", oRecord.StringData(1)

Set oInst = Nothing
