I have a uninstall.sh file . which looks like the following. also I have created a script in Dell KACE with that  (Type:- online KScript , depemdemcies :- uninstall.sh

Task 1

Verfy that the directory "/use/bin" exists.

on Success


Launch bin\sh with params $(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)/uninstall.sh ”.

uninstall.sh file exactly looks like this.

rm -R '/Applications/Microsoft Communicator.app/'
rm -R '/Applications/Microsoft Messenger.app/'
rm -R '/Applications/Microsoft Office 2011/'
rm -R '/Applications/Remote Desktop Connection.app/'
rm -R '/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/'

Try using "Launch a program" and just call "$(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)/uninstall.sh".
