Hello everyone,
I am needed to remove a program that was hand installed on about 30 computers. The program is a vendor .msi. I do not have the .msi. I was wondering what was the best way to go about uninstalling this application from the computers. I know I can get a guid from the registry somewhere and try to run a msiexec.exe /x {guid} but will it find the old msi? And is the guid different per machine? I'm somewhat confused as to the best way to go about doing this. Please send me your guidance. It is always adored.

The GUID is called product code of a msi.
The location where u can find the product code for ur msi in the registry is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{product code}

try to find the product code of ur msi and use the command line : msiexec /x {Product code}

If you are looking for a quick way to find the guid/uninstall string for an application currently installed on a machine you could use either

My Uninstaller (standalone app that comprises of a single .exe)

Or Microsofts, WINDOWS INSTALLER CLEAN UP UTILITY
