What is the best way to uninstall adobe Design Premium from a classroom?



I need to remove Adobe Design and Web Premium CS6 from a classroom. It is no longer needed in that room. What are the steps on the K1000/ where do i find the uninstaller? The room is a windows lab.

on the k1000 look under the sopftware line item at the uninstall string


Product Un-Install Command:


C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\OOBE\PDApp\core\PDApp.exe --appletID="DWA_UI" --appletVersion="2.0" --mode="Uninstall" --mediaSignature="{402F6F2E-5683-491C-977D-0CA599A07CAF}"

In the K1000 create a managed install "uninstall" using that command.

This is an example do not have an actuall one for CS6


  • The other place to find uninstall commands is in the registry under HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall\.... There is a series of key sets under this key and you would search from here for "cs6" and you would find a keyset for it and a key under that named UninstallString - SMal.tmcc 7 years ago
  • I created a new Managed install and put the uninstall command in but nothing happens to the test computer. I also tried under the scripting tab to use the uninstaller wizard under configuration policy. I got that so it brings up the uninstall window on the computer but it waits for me to click uninstall - Chadg001 7 years ago

I also had a very similar issue with multiple adobe products needing to be removed with a True-up situation.

I do not use K1000/2000 or 3000, so this might be not extremely relevent, but Adobe provides a packaging tool that can be setup to unbinstall a product. i used this to create apackage and deploy via SCCM.
