Need help to uninstall .net 4.7.2 on my Windows 2016 Server.

I installed .net 4.7.2 for my Exchange 2016 CU9 running on Windows 2016 Data Center.

After getting a million errors on my Exchange Servers I was asked to remove .net 4.7.2 and revert back to .net 4.7.1

I found no way on the Server to remove .net except for 4.6 3.5 and 2.0   4.7 does not show.

I did find this but not sure which is correct.
Open an admin command prompt and paste this script:
%windir%\\Framework64\v4.0.30319\SetupCache\v4.7.02558\setup.exe /uninstall /x86 /x64 /passive /norestart
If you have 4.7.1 as the latest version, this will run the removal tool. Reboot, and it will be removed.

What would the proper method of removing .net 4.7.2 be?

Can I use the above command? What changes would I need to make it work?

Thank  you,
