    As a test, find a computer that has QuickTime installed on it, right-click and choose WMI->Execute Query, then choose Win32_Product. Click Execute Query and see if QuickTime shows up in the list.

      Hello,
      Quicktime doesn't appear in the list.

        The WMI method is the only way we have to uninstall software remotely, but that requires the software to have been installed using a .MSI file. If you don't see the software in the list, this method won't work.

          Did you see a list, however ? I ran a test of this on my computer (remotely) which had QuickTime installed and it was in the installed software list and it uninstalled. It might depend on the version, however, but I don't know what version I had.

            It was installed using an executable file (.exe).
            I found a script but when I ran it remotely using Hyena it only popup the dialog box. It didn't unistall the application. However, If I log on the worksation I am able to uninstall the application using the same script.
            Here is the script
            et WshShell = CreateObject("wscript.Shell")

            WshShell.Run "%Systemroot%\unvise32qt.exe /s %Systemroot%\system32\QUICKT~1\UNINST~1.LOG"
            wscript.Sleep 2000
            WshShell.SendKeys "{TAB}{TAB}"
            wscript.Sleep 2000
            WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}"

              Since you have a script, you might try using psexec in a Custom Tool and see if that will work. Search this board for psexec for some examples on how to use it.
