Ever wanted to uninstall a boat load of crap in one silent uninstall batch operation?
Well I created a tool to do it. See ClickOnce installer. It requires .NET 3.5.
Here’s a couple of screen shots. It loads up, finds all products, and merges that with your existing saved baseline, in this case it found that XML notepad is new, so it puts a question mark on it, you can then decide whether to include that in your bulk uninstall, or ignore it. Put an X on all the products you want to uninstall. The blanks are ones you have explicitly marked “ignore” before, so they are still “ignored” now. If you uncheck the “Show all” checkbox the “Ignored” ones are hidden. See uninstall progress screen shot below.
Then during uninstall you get progress in the form of green checkmarks on each app that is uninstalled.
