I am attempting to use WMIC to obtain the value ONLY for a program like:
wmic product "Symantec Endpoint Protection" get identifyingnumber /value

But this command gives me "identifyingnumber=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"

How do I get just the value without the "identifyingnumber" in its return.  My goal is to take that value and attach it to another script like so.

msiexec.exe /q/x %Identifyingnumber%

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I would look into using powershell

$prod = (gwmi win32_product -Filter "name like 'Symantec Endpoint Protection'")
