I am looking to keep this as simple as possible.  I have a program that needs to be removed before the newer version can be deployed.  I wanted to prepare the service team with a very basic script to handle this for them.  The way I was thinking is shown below:

WMIC
Product where name="NAMEGOESHERE" call uninstall /nointeractive

How do I automate that to run from a script?  Preferably batch script, but I'm not sure this can be accomplished without something else like VB.
