Smart uninstaller

Post by Charger440 »

I'll make this quick as I need to run off to bed.

I have noticed a few times that smart uninstaller does not show all the items in the add/remove programs list. I ran across that again today but had a customer watching over my shoulder.
If you are not aware of this issue, I will screen shot both add/remove and smart uninstaller for you to see.

Today, at least half the stuff did not show up in smart uninstaller.

P.S. I have another script I am working on if Fred don't beat me to it :)

It is not "Can it be done?" but rather, "How can we do it?"

Hello Jim.

Can you please attach a reg file of one of the "not shown" uninstall entries?
As you certainly know, the uninstall entry's key is a subkey of one of the following keys

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

Please export the uninstall entry's key, zip and attach the created reg file. That will help me understand why it doesn't show up.

Thanks.

I will be getting the computer back this weekend that I was refering too. It will be a good one to look at since I will have it here in the office. Most of the add/remove stuff on it did not show up in Smart uninstaller. It will be interesting to see why. I will get you all the details asap on it.
