Has anyone ever done the snapshot of removing a program using Admin Studio.
Is it possible ?

I have actually done it but with very limited success, and this was some time ago. These days I find another way to uninstall the package. If its an MSI then its easy enough, just msiexec /x EXAMPLE.MSI /qb for example. If its not it gets a bit tougher, what I usually do in that instance is run the manual uninstall and then check out the process in Sysinternals Process Explorer (www.sysinternals.com) - if you double click on the process it will give you the exact command line that is running the uninstall, and you can often feed some command line switches into that to allow it to run silently.

If you get some bizarre uninstallation that doesn't support silent uninstalls (and they do exist) then theres a few options, one I've used is write a vbscript with the sendkeys to automate clicking through the uninstall options. There are probably others and perhaps someone else can give you some pointers.
