We are trying to uninstall and old package that was deployed manually years ago. We have the msiexec command to unistall the package, but we are trying to determine the best way to remove the software. Is there a way to use GP Software Deployment to only uninstall an application? Any thoughts on the easiest and secure method to accomplish this task? Windows 2003 Native Domain

I haven't done this so test it first if no one comes up with a better solution...

Try deploying the application using a group policy (to a test machine with the app already installed).  Then use the GPO to unistall the app.
