Hi,

Aside from uninstalling SC the traditional way, I also go in the registry and do a search to find any instance of SC and then delete the folders and keys. I am looking to automate this process by way of a script or some .exe file. The problem comes up when I deploy SC with a GPO and then need to reinstall it for any reason via the same GPO. (Possibilities may include: Upgrades,share name broke, new server, moved the installed to a new location). The list goes on and on. Bottom line in order for SC to get reinstalled after its installed via a GPO you need to completely remove it out of the registry. Is there anyone that can shed light on this or has a script or is in a similar situation?

Thanks,

rmmccann

Microsoft has a Windows Installer Cleanup Utility that can be run on machines with broken GPO-based SC installations (and other broken installations that can't be removed via Add/Remove).

I've used it a few times myself and it's worked fine. Allows you to reinstall without being prompted for the original setup file path.

Have a look at http://forum.screenconne...--Mac--PC.aspx#post15391 for information on cleaning up after client installs.

The challenge with scripting is identifying the right variables.

The ScreenConnect folder in the %Program Files (x86) directory will be named "ScreenConnect Client (character string)"
