How to uninstall multple apps at once


We need to uninstall both Adobe Acrobat XI and Adobe Acrobat 2017 prior to installing Acrobat DC 2022. How should set the Remove-MSIApplications line so it will remove either one? Right now I have it set to:

Remove-MSIApplications -Name 'Adobe Acrobat 2017,Adobe Acrobat XI Pro'

But it’s not working. It says:

[Pre-Installation] :: Found [0] application(s) that matched the specified criteria [Adobe Acrobat 2017,Adobe Acrobat XI Pro]. Remove-MSIApplications 11/16/2022 2:22:27 PM 11276 (0x2C0C)

When you create the MST file for Acrobat DC 2022, there should be an option to remove all previous Acrobat products.

Failing that, use the Product codes of the MSI packages you want to remove.

This is what I’ve used for quite some time and seems to work consistently.

You might want to make sure you are using the correct name for the removal.

Thanks for the idea, but we aren’t using MST files
