I am trying to remove Microsoft Security Essentials from all computers in our company with Kace k1000. I went to Scripting -> Configuration Policy -> Un-Installer Wizard

Found MSE version I wanted to remove and tried to run with the following information :

Directory: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client
File: setup.exe
Parameters: /x /s

Added computers I wanted to test and it tells me that it was successful, however it doesn't get uninstalled and I get this from the log file.  Can you please tell me what i am doing wrong? Thank you!

 

Output Log

Running as: SYSTEM
Checking if registry 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Kace\KBot Configuration\Uninstall0' value 'key' is equal to '1703640548' did not succeed: (2)

I would think a more elegant solution would be take the software item found in inventory attach the installer and the create a deployment that uses the uninstall string only and deploy.
