    Hi guys,

    I need some quick help with finishing this batch file.

    My batch file includes commands with quickly removing directories and files but it needs one thing I can't get to work properly.

    My question is how to write a command prompt command to uninstall a program?

    Here is my current batch file setup -

    echo off
    color 2
    pause
    TASKKILL /IM NetClient.exe
    TASKKILL /IM cellularplugincontroller.exe
    TASKKILL /IM netcfgsvr.exe
    TASKKILL /IM netclientsvc.exe
    TASKKILL /IM netlogsvc.exe
    TASKKILL /IM netmsg.exe
    TASKKILL /IM comsmithmicrosdkserver.exe
    call "C:\Program Files\SOTI\MobiControl\Uninstall.bat"
    net user student /del
    net user username ""
    rd /s /q "C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\Software - Be Careful"
    del /s /q "C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\Help_LION_Audio_Issues.pdf"
    rd /s /q "C:\Program Files\SOTI"
    del /s /q "C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\Connect to At&T Network"
    DISM /online /enable-feature /featurename:Internet-Explorer-Optional-x86
    wmic
    product where name="AT&T Global Network Client LaptopConnect Edition" call uninstall
    Y
    exit
    shutdown -s

    Hope you guys can help, still having trouble with the AT&T part as I see it.

    Still new to this but I'll manage with instructions.

    Thanks again

    Ffirst check for typos.. and don't you need to be a lot more specific when you call the uninstall routine?

    These primitive dos things look very strange to my eyes these days.. what dos version is it for anyhow? I don't remember "uninstall" being a batch file command.. $uninstall" could be, calling a pre determined subroutine from a specified location set in a variables array or loaded with a get $="uninstall".. that looks far too much like C++ for my liking tho.. too many years scripting for linux and perl :)

    This should help..
