Script for an Unattended WinZip Uninstall

September 26, 2003

Email Print Digg This Add to
Here's a small batch file from Steve Shockley that will allow you to perform an unattended uninstall of the WinZip application (in other words, no user prompts during the uninstall). The VBScript deploys an undocumented WinZip command via SMS to uninstall the application. Feedback is welcomed from the author.

Download the wzkill.vbs file.

The contents of the batch file are as follows:

' Uninstall WinZip
' This script uninstalls WinZip 8.0 cleanly with no user prompting

On Error Resume Next
Dim fso
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
sub main()
    'Let's find out where WinZip is installed
App Paths\winzip32.exe\")
    Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    WshShell.Run WZPath & " /uninstallx",0,TRUE
    FullWZPath = replace(WZPath, "PROGRA~1", "Program Files")
end sub
function regget(value)
  on error resume next
  Set regedit = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
end function
function DeleteAFolder(filespec)
   Dim fso
   on error resume next
   Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
end function
