Perform the following steps to uninstall an application by using Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager:
- Specify the command line to uninstall the
deployment type content on the Content page of the Create
Deployment Type Wizard.
- Deploy the application by using a deployment
action of Uninstall.
|Some application types do not support uninstallation.|
The following list gives more information about the application uninstall behavior:
- When you uninstall a Configuration Manager
application, the dependent applications are not automatically
- If you deploy an application that uses an
action of Uninstall to a user, and the application was
installed for all users of the computer, then the uninstall might
fail if the user’s account does not have permissions to uninstall
- If you remove a user or device from a
collection that has an application deployed to it, the application
will not be automatically removed from the device.
- A deployment with the deployment purpose of
Uninstall does not check requirement rules. If the
application is installed on the computer on which the deployment
runs, it will be uninstalled.
|You must delete any existing deployments or simulated deployments of an application to a collection before you can deploy the application with a deployment action of Uninstall.|
