Removing SCCM client

Hi All.  I need to remove  the SCCM client from several servers.  However some of these systems are x64 bit versions of Windows server and others are x86.  So the SCCM Clients are installed in different paths depending on the O/S bit version.  Is there a 'ccmsetup' directory variable to cover both situations when the uninstall runs?  i.e. %ccmsetup%\ or the like.  On Windows 2008 R2, the file is in 'C:\Windows' d

Will the '/uninstall' switch also remove registry entries, or any other remnant SCCM program or setup files?  Will it leave MP info anywhere, etc.

Why do you need a path? CCMSetup.exe /uninstall is ALL you need to execute. Its silent and needs no intervention or paths passed to it.

You can uninstall the Configuration Manager 2007 client software from a computer by using CCMSetup.exe with the /Uninstall switch. Run CCMSetup.exe on an individual computer from the command prompt or use Configuration Manager 2007 software distribution to uninstall the client on a collection of computers by using a script.

Use the following procedure to uninstall the Configuration Manager 2007 client.

To uninstall the Configuration Manager client
1.Open a Windows command prompt and change the folder to the location in which CCMSetup.exe is located.

2.Type Ccmsetup.exe /uninstall, and then press Enter.

Sorry i forgot to add the last line! lol

CCMSetup.exe is found on a share on your SCCM server so you ALWAYS know where to find it.
Probably you're looking for %windir%\sysWOW64, but as Neilsr already stated, you only need to invoke CCMSetup.exe /uninstall from the share that already exists...
