Massive DOS script for Software removal

October 20, 2009 at 07:49:01
Specs: Windows Vista
Problem: Trying to remove unauthorized software from the network on 1,000 pcs. I have the list of software I need to remove and I have the list of of computers but I am not certain what computers there actually on.

So I want to make a script in dos that will run the list of software through all the pcs and tell me what pcs there on.

Aftter that I want to delete all those unatuthorized software.

- Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated, Thanks

Rather than using a bat file, a better option would be to use WPKG.

It's unlikely in the extreme that this wiAll get done in DOS.

An inquiring mind might wonder why you can't use an open source tool.

FM, that wpkg looks like a butt-saver. Into the toolbox it goes.

I haven't read the post, but I can already tell you you're doing something wrong.

So I want to make a script in dos that will run the list of software through all the pcs and tell me what pcs there on.
How do you intend to do this? Walk to every PC and run the script? How do you plan on "uninstalling?" Just deleting the program's main folder?

I cant use an open source tool becuase it is not approved let me just put it that way. It would be a severe pain to get approved and a waste of time, to many so and so's and approvals.

I have active directory, and yes all pcs are under users so just removeing the main folder would work.

So you have a list of directories to remove, and you plan on pushing it out as a computer startup script? Then that's easy.
FOR /F "delims=" %%a IN (\\someServer\someShare\list.txt) DO RD /S /Q "%%a"
