Re: HPCA agent uninstall issue

Here is one way to remotely uninstall HPCA Agent from multiple machines:

1. Prepare a text file(machinelist.txt) where each line contains the IP address or hostname of the machine where HPCA Agent is to be uninstalled

2. Dowload PsExec.exe

3. Determine the MSI product code of HPCA Agent to be uninstalled. For 8.1 version of HPCA Agent the product code is {072890D5-A7B6-4993-970F-0121FFF5B6CA}

4. Run the following command:

psexec -d -e -u administrator -p xxx @machinelist.txt MsiExec.exe /q /X{072890D5-A7B6-4993-970F-0121FFF5B6CA}


It is possible I might have missed something here, let me know if these instructions work as expected.


And, by the way, what's the reason for a "mass uninstall" of HPCA Agent from the managed PCs?
