Just looking for input on how others remove applications via SMS.

I do it 1 of 2 ways. Either I write a Wise script to run the msiexec /x command if I know the specific ID of the MSI, or I have a script that pulls the uninstall string from the registry for whatever app I specify and runs that.

Are there any other ways to accomplish this?

Just started with SMS but I use either the ProductCode and create a remove package with the cmd line msiexec /x followed by the ProductCode GUID or use a VB script to execute the uninstall.

I then create a query to look for the application to meet the following criteria:
Not being in the AD Group and having the Product Code, create a remove collection and advertisement for them then when the PC meets the required criteria it is uninstalled.

It is long winded compared to other S/D tools I have used (Tivoli, Zenworks) and if anyone has a better method let me know!!
