Hi all,

 

How would I uninstall Express VPN on devices using intune? These devices can preloaded with this software I didnt install this myself

 

Please help!

Hi,
Dont know if it had a uninstall string... but you could do the same for office as for express VPN

$UninstallStrings = ((Get-ItemProperty "HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\*") |
Where {$_.DisplayName -like "Express vpn?????"} |
Select UninstallString).UninstallString

ForEach ($UninstallString in $UninstallStrings) {
$UninstallEXE = ($UninstallString -split '"')[1]
$UninstallArg = ($UninstallString -split '"')[2] + " DisplayLevel=False"
Start-Process -FilePath $UninstallEXE -ArgumentList $UninstallArg -Wait
}

Could you share the contents of where it was installed? Does it have a uninstall.exe in it? does it work to call up on the exe file and add /uninstall /quiet /norestart?
Hi Rudy I will try this when I can remote into a laptop with this on thank you! I will let you know how I get on.
