SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 - Software Center - Uninstall Option - For Applications RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Experts,

    We have Deployed an Application to the End Users using Configuration Manger 2012 R2. After deployed the application, we came to know those application users are looking for the Option to Uninstall it.

    Since the Uninstallation Command Line is not given during the Deployment, We had tried with the following steps

    1. Added the Command Line for Uninstall String
    2. Update the Content Status

    Before we made the change, the software was installed by few users, and they are not getting the Option to Uninstall (From Software Center)

    Now, We are looking forward to bring the Option to Uninstall the application for those softwares from Software Center for our users.

    Any Suggestions Pls?

  • For the uninstall key to be available in software center you need to make sure you have a uninstall string in the deployment you are pushing. You need to have a valid detection method. The deployment must be set to available if you set the deployment to require user can't remove the software.

    If all of the above is true make sure the version you are seeing in software center is the latest one. If you made a change to the deployment make sure you update it as well.

  • The client need to get the new policy with the information change. if you did not touch the source or added files no need to update the content.

  • 2. Update the Content Status


    That's not needed because you did not touch source files.
    Have you initiated a policy download on the client or waited enough time for it to happen automatically?

  • Thank you,

    We were having the Un-installation Command Line for those Applications. As we did not add the Command Line for Uninstallation which did not reflect for Uninstall Option on Software Center for End Users.

    Now, We have added the Command Line - If I go ahead and Update the Content - Does it get reflect on all end user machines to get the Option to Uninstall from Software Center.

    Note : Most of the Uses, had installed those Application, which does not shows in the Available Software Now, But shows on Installation Status and Installed Software with Uninstall (Grayed Out)

    Regards,
