Hi Experts,
I want to uninstall teamviewer from client machine using SCCM 2007.

Command  I have used for installation in program is "teamviewer_setup_en-wp.exe" /s.

Can any one say what command do I need to write if I want to uninstall remotely.

Ameen.

Goto:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

in there find the key (generally a GUID)  that relates to your teamviewer install and look for the Uninstall Command Value. You can use that command in a program.

If the command has msiexec in it, then make sure the final command you use looks something like this:
msiexec /x {GUID} /qn /l*v %temp%\TeamViewer_uninstall.log

replace the the word GUID with the GUID key name for TeamViewer.  in the command i have shown, i have made it create a verbose log file of the uninstall to help you troubleshoot any uninstall problems.

Even easier way of this would be using WMI

WMIC product where name=”productname” call uninstall

Extremely easy and silent.

as you can see by its uninstallstring, they have an uninstall.exe to remove it.  Try create a program that will call that command using the program to make it hidden.

yes.  you could try doing the command like this:
CMD /c "C:\Program Files\TeamViewer\Version6\Uninstall.exe"

that will launch it in a command prompt.  but try both to find out which works best for you.   I wonder if their uninstall.exe has a /s option for silent or maybe its silent by default...
