Can Flexera remove/uninstall software?

Hi Flexera Community,

 

Can Flexera remove applications?

e.g there are 100 installs of application ABC in our environment. We have no licenses for it and we want to remove it from all the devices the Flexera agent has picked it up on. 

Can we send a command with Flexera to remove them. Is there a component or add-on that can be purchased to do this?

 

Regards

Hi @kaytee,

Thank you for your post.

There isn't an automatic way to bulk remove all 100 applications. You would need to custom configure your InstallShield project to iterate through the list of applications one by one and launch each command to uninstall.

You would need to decide your project type first: Basic MSI, InstallScript, or InstallScript MSI.

With a Basic MSI or InstallScript MSI project, you could try writing / implementing an InstallScript custom action to take care of this.

With an InstallScript project, you could try writing / implementing InstallScript code to take care of this.

Troubleshooting for this issue will, most likely, get very involved, so you would need to navigate to Get Support > Open New Case in the top menu before proceeding.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
