This comes as an MSU. It installs with the standard switches with no problem. An alternative name for this utility is RSAT. This particular one is for Windows 10 specifically.
This is where "AD Users and Computers" and many other server management consoles are stored.
I handle all logs in the scripted wrapper.
"WUSA WindowsTH-KB2693643-x64.MSU /quiet /norestart"
A restart will be required before you can use it, because it's a KB. So feel free to use whatever suits your needs.
The uninstall should be:
"WUSA /uninstall /KB:2693643 /quiet /norestart"
A string like that should work with a KB, not this one for some reason. The parameter /quiet registers as an error. All the others seem to work.
Because I didn't want to give up and build a screen scraper to get this done I leveraged DISM.
"DISM.exe /Online /Remove-Package /PackageName:<InternalPackageName> /quiet /norestart"
To find the package name this command was used:
"DISM.exe /Online /Get-Packages /Format:Table > C:\temp\DISMPackages.txt"
Look through that and find the name given for RSAT. You can write a script to parse this to find the name, but I was lazy.
The name that you will find should be the same wherever it is installed. It appears to be built off the XML that is packed in the MSU.
I did attempt build the removal package using package manager and then decided it was not a good choice. Package manager seems to leave all the installed components behind, which is a total mess. DISM works more like WUSA should. It takes out the registry keys and MSC's.
