I have deployed several packages using MSIs and Group Policy. This has gone well for the most part.
However I have created some packages which did not deploy correctly at some workstations [I was given the wrong version of the software and the packages have to come of the stations anyway ]
I am finding that some stations do not remove the package correctly and now when the stations restart it tries to remove the package again. Is there any way of ensuring that the packages are removed and thus preventing this annoying repeated process of the station trying [and failing] to remove the software.
To fully remove a failed install you need MSIZAP (which is free from Microsoft) - just do a web-search.
By default it is interactive, but it actually runs (twice) a dos program with a paramater that includes the GUID of the installation to be wiped. If you can get the parameters, you can get to run it as a batch run (and therefore have it run on a set of machines.
Never known it to have a problem.
