I am trying to do a pretty standard uninstall in Managed Installs using the uninstall string that Kace sees for the application on a Windows 7 PC.  If doesn't appear to be working so I am not sure if it is the UAC stopping it or something else.  UAC is at default value.  I tried manually running the command on the PC and it works fine but it will prompt me to allow the action.  Any suggestions ?

You will want to add /qn to the un-install string for a silent/suppressed uninstall (if you haven't)...

For example here's a shot of my setup for a Java uninstall...

Nice jegolf...

clasha- it sound silly but you may want to double check you have the right OS's selected for supporting the uninstallation.

if you are seeing a msiexec.exe /i {bunch of information} you are better off using the scripting policy wizard for uninstallers 

 

Scripting > Configureation policy

Uninstall Wizard

I find it much easier if the KBOX returned an msiexec string for uninstallations. 

If you are using Managed Installations, can you include a screenshot so we can see what you are trying to do?
