In this manual, I will show how you can uninstall software remotely using command line (and not delete files, but silent uninstall the program), without going into the control panel and running the Programs and Features applet. I do not know how much this will be useful to most readers in practice, but I think the opportunity itself will be interesting to someone.
In order to remove the program via the command line from remote computer, first of all run it as an administrator. In Windows 7, to do this, find it in the Start menu, right-click and select Run as Administrator, and in Windows 8 and 8.1, you can click the Win + X keys and select the desired item from the menu.
In the command line window that appears, type wmic and click Enter on the keyboard. As a result wmic cli tool will be opened.
Enter the following command in the console:
product get name
Now, to remove a specific program, enter the command:
product where name = ”program name” call uninstall
