  • I have a feeling I have an answer for you, but I'll need a couple details first..

    For which operating system are you uninstalling the application from?
    Are you using an endpoint management tool to perform the uninstall?
  • So the application is removed, but it still shows up as an icon or in the add/remove programs?
    If you are uninstalling from a Windows 7 machine you can look in the registry under the hive entry:
    HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall
    or
    HKLM\software\wow6432node\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall

Now there are two ways in which this can be done:

1. Make sure the following registry entry is getting deleted. If not, remove it.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Printers\[PrinterName].

Restart the spooler service:

net stop spooler

net start spooler

 OR

2. Use the command-line below:

rundll32 printui,PrintUIEntry /dl /b "printer name"
