Remove Adobe XI Pro SCCM or PowerShell

New Contributor

Hello, 

I need to find a way to uninstall Adobe XI Pro with either SCCM or a PS script.  I'm having some problems figuring out the correct commands to uninstall the software.  The software was not deployed with SCCM it was manually installed via exe many years ago.

 

This is the command I'm using and I'm actually just trying to make it a script so I can use SCCM to uninstall the software from a device collection I built.

 

msiexec /x {[Acrobat.exe | AC76BA86-1033-FFFF-7760-000000000006]} /qn /norestart

 

I'm a novice uninstalling with these methods, your help is appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Dean

I think I resolved this:

I did some PS research work and ran a get-package on a target PC to get a list of installed apps. I also found in PS that there is a Uninstall-Package command and after a few tries I came up with this - Uninstall-Package -Name "Adobe Acrobat XI Pro" -Force and tested it on a Target PC. The script ran and completed the uninstall. In this case, I was not worried about a specific build of the software, I just wanted it off the PC.

I created the script in SCCM and assigned the script to run against a test device collection and it worked.

Here is the script out put from the results in SCCM:
