Need to uninstall application from multiple computer in a domain
currently i am using the

psexec \\computer name Msiexec.exe /q/x{guid} remove=all

from a remote computer to uninstall application --one computer at a time

how do i use the @file switch and what needs to go in the file ??
would I just create a .txt file and just list all the computers

computername, computername, computername

or does it need to be a specific format??
and how would I add that switch

enosuna,
Here is a link to some detailed psexec scripting from 'sirbounty'.
There are also some comments about permissions, etc.
