Re: uninstall teamviewer silently

Does teamviewer provide a msi package? if so, it should be easier to deploy or silently uninstall.

 strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")

'Get the OS architecture
'=======================
Err.Clear
checkOSArch = WshShell.RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment\PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE")
returnValue = 0
'Wscript.Echo checkOSArch 

if Err Then
	Err.Clear
	'WScript.Echo "The OS Architecture is unable to find ,so it was assumed to be 32 bit"	
else
	if checkOSArch = "x86" Then
		'Wscript.Echo "The OS Architecture is 32 bit"
		
		strKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall"
		returnValue = RemoveTeamViewer (strKeyPath)
	else
		'Wscript.Echo "The OS Architecture is 64 bit"
		
		strKeyPath64 = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall"
		returnValue =  RemoveTeamViewer (strKeyPath64)

An msi package means no need for uninstall.exe
https://www.advancedinstaller.com/user- … iexec.html It means using the native windows packaging instead.

I haven't use teamviewer but maybe this is what you are looking for https://community.teamviewer.com/t5/Kno … ta-p/36685?
Generally for mass deployments, you want to try to use msi packages if they exist and then fallback to classic setup,exe/uninstall.exe

At least it is an IT-related question.
Sometimes most of the questions are of the type "how do I do this formality in Lebanon" etc.
Also quite annoying is every few months or so someone starts a thread asking how to recover data on their hard drive, totally ignoring that this question has been asked and answered on Lebgeeks like a dozen times already.
Anyway, sorry, I invited myself to the complaining-party. Hope you don't mind.

I had pdq deploy on trial abd wanted a difficult test for a free software

I failed hard
