Remove remotely NWClient from Workstation

Hello NG

I would like to remove the NWClient from our Workstations. How can I start a
remote uninstallation procedure? Does exist a TID that explain this?

Thanks in advance for your help

Re: Remove remotely NWClient from Workstation

I don't think this is officialy supported (and this tip is for Client32
4.8x so who knows if it will work), but you can try this:

How to Automatically Uninstall Client32 for ZFD4 Agent

We are in the process of upgrading from ZfD 3.2 to ZfD 4.0 and we are
moving to a clientless environment. We have 700 W2K workstations that we
needed to uninstall the client32 and install the ZfD4 Agent on. I used
the following TID 10070072 to do this, and thought you'd like to know it
worked great for me:

How to run a batch file to uninstall client 4.8x on Windows 2000
Usually we suggest removing the client through the services list on
networking components but it is also possible to remove the client using
the SETUPW2K.EXE that comes with the 4.8x clients.
Example batch file to remove IPX and Workstation manager and NDPS and
the 4.8X Client.
In a batch file I have the following lines.
SETUPW2K /u ms_nwspx
SETUPW2K /u ms_nwnb
SETUPW2K /u ms_nwipx (uninstall IPX)
SETUPW2K /u nw_wm (uninstall Workstation Manager)
SETUPW2K /u nw_ndps
SETUPW2K /u nw_nwfs
The setupw2k.exe is found in the client install directory i386\redir.
This removed the components and then the client itself last.

Re: Remove remotely NWClient from Workstation

For the 4.9 Client, it is available via the Add/Remove Programs.
You can find the uninstall string in the registry.
Just remotely make the call to uninstall the client.

4.8 did not have this feature so this tip below was required.
