create a multiple version uninstaller from a batch file

I have multiple versions of a software (QuickTime) that I need to uninstall throughout my environment. Creating a managed installation forces me to pick a software and version. If I select one of the versions that is listed, but target all the machines that have quicktime regardless of what version, will they all uninstall? Or is there a better I could use to deploy the batch file?

  • I am in the same situation. Need to use the k1000 to remove quicktime from all computers. We have multiple versions of quicktime so I'm trying to get them all at once. - pbroussard 4 years ago
  • Hello David. Just checking to see if you were able to solve this. I am needing to do a mass-uninstall on all end points at my organization as well. Let me know! Thanks! - lsnbengineer 4 years ago
  • I'm in the same boat as well. Need to uninstall several different versions of Quicktime from various computers in different locations. - griffsdad 4 years ago
  • So what I did was wrote a multiple line batch file targeting all the onesie-twosie versions in the environment and applied it as a managed installation pointing at a specific version of QuickTime for the software version (it worked on all of them tho), and used KACE uninstaller scripts that targeted the high volume versions. A little work intensive, but at the end of the day it worked well and I've got the script running to see if it removes anything that pops into the environment. - david.fitzpatrick@assetmark.com 4 years ago

I had the same issue on our campus! 

We used this : https://community.spiceworks.com/how_to/1594-how-to-set-up-a-silent-install-of-quicktime-through-a-batch-script

Worked a treat

wmic product where "name like 'quicktime%'" call uninstall /nointeractive

Try that. It should detect all versions and call the uninstaller
