in work place all computer were install with captivate 5. try to write script through altiris to uninstall it but failed. try below two ways:

1. "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\OOBE\PDApp\DWA\Setup.exe" --mode=silent --deploymentFile=<your working share path>\remove.xml
in this way, I do not have remove.xml at all. so definitely failed.


2.C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\OOBE\PDApp\core\PDApp.exe --appletID="DWA_UI" --appletVersion="1.0" --mode="Uninstall" --mediaSignature="{8E355243-1A34-4EE8-A743-C166E68CF5C0}"

this way, through altiris it failed with long error code. if I mainly typed in client computer, it poped up a windows for uninstallation confirmation.  i am not sure whether it is the reason in which it failed in altiris.


can someone help, please?

Have you checked the registry for an uninstall string.  It should be located under the applications GUID here ->HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{GUID}.  If you see a SystemComponent=1 value you may have to search further down the key for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Captivate or something app specific.
