This GUID was for Visual C++ Redist 2008 x86 9.0.30729.4148 on my system.

But thanks for the great work!!

Thanks for the input Jason, and good to see this is useful for others besides me.
I've updated the list regarding the 6.0.1 GUID, and added some more GUIDs, including the latest Acrobat Reader X (10.1.0).
Enjoy :)

I too had problem with Adobe reader X's uninstall process. I was tired of trying everything, I searched many links on internet but I couldn't find any solution. Finally I found this post http://forums.techarena.in/windows-software/1458203.htm#post5592136 which helped me solve my problem. You too can try it, it is really helpful.

Hey StoneCold42 do you happen to have the Silent Uninstall for Adobe Reader X 10.1.1

This is like sticking pins in your eyeballs. A simple bit of VBScript does it all for you. It uses the windows installer object and searches for text strings to match the ones you set and from there picks out the GUIDs to run the uninstalls. Take out the wscript.echo commands once debugging is complete.


Option Explicit
Dim WshShell, installer, comp, guid, a, fso, pname, pid, cache, exitcode
exitcode=0

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set a = fso.CreateTextFile("c:\logs\AdobeAcrobatReader_Uninstall.log", True)
Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
' Connect to Windows Installer object
Set installer = CreateObject("WindowsInstaller.Installer")
a.writeline ("Products Uninstalled")
on error resume next
For Each guid In installer.products   
   pname = installer.productinfo(guid, "InstalledProductName")
   If Instr(1,UCase(pname),"ADOBE ACROBAT READER",1)>0 Then
      exitcode=exitcode+1
 wscript.echo guid
 cache = installer.productinfo (guid, "LocalPackage")
 wscript.echo "msiexec.exe /x " & guid & " /qn /L*v c:\logs\AcrobatReaderUninstall.log"
   WshShell.Run "msiexec.exe /x " & guid & " /qn /L*v c:\logs\AcrobatReaderUninstall.log" ,1,true
      a.writeline ("ProductGUID " & guid  & VBCRLF  & "ProductName " & pname & VBCRLF & "Cached MSI filename " &  cache & VBCRLF)  
   End If  
   If Instr(1,UCase(pname),"ADOBE READER",1)>0 Then
      exitcode=exitcode+1
 wscript.echo guid
 cache = installer.productinfo (guid, "LocalPackage")
 wscript.echo "msiexec.exe /x " & guid & " /qn /L*v c:\logs\AcrobatReaderUninstall.log"
   WshShell.Run "msiexec.exe /x " & guid & " /qn /L*v c:\logs\AcrobatReaderUninstall.log" ,1,true
      a.writeline ("ProductGUID " & guid  & VBCRLF  & "ProductName " & pname & VBCRLF & "Cached MSI filename " &  cache & VBCRLF)  
   End If  
Next
Set installer = Nothing
a.close
If exitcode>1 then
 exitcode=1
End If
wscript.quit(exitcode)
