Remote Uninstallation of Desktop Applications should be a feature in remote utilities as you can remote install applications via msi and exe so why not have an Uninstall feature.

Hello Nathan,

Thank you for your message.

Could you please clarify if you mean uninstalling Host remotely? If this is the case, there is already such a feature within the Remote Install Tool. In order to uninstall the Host remotely, please do the following:
1. Run the Viewer as administrator.
2. In the Viewer address book select a connection (or a few connections).
3. Navigate to the Tools tab on the toolbar and click Remote Install...
4. Select a connection type and in the Action menu choose Uninstall host and click Process action.

For more information please refer to this Documentation article.

If you mean something else, please elaborate a bit more on the feature.

Hope that helps.

Yeah i mean something else So the remote uninstallation of programmes on the remote machine such as Anti-Virus makes it easier so we dont need to login and manually uninstall these applications

I tried to do it via the terminal command and run powershell from it but powershell doesn't seem to work through terminal

Hello Nathan,

Thank you for the clarification.

I will forward your feature suggestion to our developers for review to see if it can be added to our roadmap.

As for the PowerShell commands feature - we certainly have this feature on our roadmap but haven't implemented it yet.

Please let me know if you have more questions.

Hello Nathan,

Thank you for your patience.

I checked with our developers on the feature. We do not plan to implement it as a separate feature or a connection method, but, perhaps, it will be a part of some new modules in our future updates.

Let me know if you have more questions.
