wmic product where name="CCC Help Dutch" call uninstall

I am trying to uninstall about 30 or so of these help files that are not needed on our domain computers. Is there a way to execute this same command on multiple machines and change the product alias each time? we use a psexec script that calls for a @computers.txt with a list of machines.

Since you are already using psexec

1. create a text file with the product aliases
2. copy the file to each local machine
3. do the uninstall
4. remove the file

e.g.
for /f  %a in (computers.txt) do copy proaliases.txt \\%a\c%\temp\ & psexec \\%a cmd /c <your wmi uninstall here> & del /F /Q c:\temp\proaliases.txt
