Hi all,

I have packaged IE11 using IEAK for windows 7 64 bit.
Installation goes fine. But for uninstallation I have created script with below command. And it runs fine when I run manually but fails to revert to old version of IE after uninstallation when I push through SCCM.

cmd /c FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M *11.*.mum /C "cmd /c echo @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /quiet /norestart /quiet exit"

cmd /c FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M *11.*.mum /C "cmd /c echo @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /quiet /norestart /quiet"

Kindly let the know how to proceed further to uninstallation IE11 on 64 bit machine.

The uninstallation of the application needs to be executed through 64-Bit context which is done manually. But, SCCM executes it in 32-Bit context and as a result of which uninstallation fails. The possible reason for this issue you might have the 32-Bit version of SCCM Client installed (see in Control Panel) and SCCM executes the command lines in 32-Bit context.
Resolution :
Windows Installer allows execution of 32-bit and 64-bit process from/within 32-bit MSI.
You can make use of MSI as a Wrapper to invoke a custom action which will be used to uninstall IE 11.
You can then add
Adding 4096 to the attributes in the custom action table, flags a script CA as a 64 bit version. - See more at: http://www.itninja.com/question/internet-explorer-ie-11-64-bit-uninstallation#sthash.jXSLaqT1.dpuf

4096 to the attributes in the custom action table, flags this script CA as a 64 bit version. (msidbCustomActionType64BitScript (4096))
You can club the custom action attributes with other processing options like: Asynchronous No Wait which is again a good trick and have many advantages.
