I have used in the past wmic.exe product where "name like 'Adobe Reader%'" call uninstall.  Wmic seems to no longer work with this latest version and KBOX doesn't show an uninstall command either.  Not sure if this is a result of using the Adobe Customization Wizard XI or not.

Apparently I haven't been very patient these days!

Eventually the wmic trick worked... 2 hours later.  And msiexec /x {AC76BA80-0011-7AD7-0000-000000000000} /qn works too.

The WMIC trick is what I use most often.  You can get the same GUID by going to the uninstall section of the registry. 

(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall)

Click down through the list of GUIDs and you can find the program faster than the WMIC command.

Then its easy from there.  Just run msiexec.exe /X{GUIDGOESHERE} /qn

Get ready for this:
wmic product where "name like 'Adobe Reader%%'" call uninstall /nointeractive

Works on any version of Reader; no need to look up the GUID. 

Works with java too:
wmic product where "name like 'Java%%'" call uninstall /nointeractive

Hello,

Yes, using the Adobe customization Wizard is most likley the reason why there is not an install command showing in the K1000. As far as the uninstall is concerned I use the same command you used earlier to uninstall.
