I am looking for a tool that will remove EAS by ZANTAZ which we use for arching emails. We can't roll out new client version unless old version is removed first. We are AD environment and not sure if GPO policy will do it.

You can only remove software with a GPO if it was put there with a GPO in the first place, in which case if the "remove when outside scope" is selected you csn reomove it - or you can designate the new version as an upgrade to replace it automatically.

You could use a MSIEXEC script to do it if the program has a uninstaller.

You will have to search for EAS under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall.

It will show the program as a GUID like this "EACF4962-0476-41D4-A04D-4AD7961F8829". The details of the program will be within that folder. Just do a find for EAS once your in the right area of the registry as above.

Then you will have to do some testing on a local pc with the following command line

The command is:

msiexec /x {EACF4962-0476-41D4-A04D-4AD7961F8829} /passive /Lire
"c:\uninstlog.txt"

Obviously the EAS uninstaller GUID goes within the brackets. The one I have put there is just a example.

Give it a crack on a pc. If it works stick it in a batch file and apply it to test pc's via Group Policy as a logon policy.

Hope it all makes sense and works. Takes abit of tweaking but hopefully will be what you need!!

Yes as long as the package has a inbuilt uninstaller.

Did it work then??
