The new UNINSTALL APPLICATION feature that the Heimdal Security dashboard offers is an efficient way of getting applications removed from all machines that are part of the GP.
This tool removes most of the applications that Heimdal Security is monitoring and also uninstalls other software that are present on the computer and are outside Heimdal Security’s Patching environment.
For this feature to successfully uninstall an application, there are some requirements. The software in question must have a Key entry in the registry or an uninstall string that has the value data MsiExec.exe.
The registry key is located HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ “The key”
The registry key is located HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ “The key”
Software that does NOT have a Key entry or UninstallString MsiExex.exe are not eligible for this feature.
NOTE! The only .EXE software that can be uninstalled using this feature, are those that have the key QuietUninstallString (instead of UninstallString) in registry directory.
An example of software that has a QuietUninstallString is GIMP:
