Hi Everyone,

Does anyone know of a way of finding out when a patch was uninstalled and by whom in Windows 2008 R2 ?

You may not be able to find out "Whom", but with some digging through the Event Logs, you should be able to find out "When".  

Open the Event Viewer and filter on the MsiInstaller source.  After you find the uninstall event you want, then you should look for "login events" to determine who was logged into the server at that time.

Windows Installer removed the product. Product Name: <product>. Product Version: <version>. Product Language: 1033. Manufacturer: <manufacturer>. Removal success or error status: 0.

Open in new window
