We are moving from Allscripts desktop client to the web version. I need to uninstall the desktop version on about 2500 workstations using SCCM.

Has anyone done this before, and can you provide tips on how to do this?

You'll find the uninstall string in the registry. Copy that into an SCCM uninstall package's command line, then run it against a small collection to test it. I'd suggest that that collection be a couple of VMs onto which you have installed the desktop client. Don't forget to snapshot the VMs after you've installed. Once you're happy that the uninstall works, add some more machines to the collection.

I'd further suggest that you incorporate a test into your web client that prevents installation if the desktop version is installed but that's a "nice to have" not an essential.
