Multi-User License Deployment on Windows

Multi-User License Deployment on Windows / 5 - Automated Deployment by GPO / 2 - Uninstalling a Previous Edition

5.2 - Uninstalling a Previous Edition

Before installing Antidote 11, you must uninstall any previous editions in a manner compatible with its initial deployment mode. For more information on uninstalling, see Appendix C, where you will find the appropriate GUID, for example.

For example, here is the content of a script that allows older editions of Antidote to be uninstalled silently. Note that there is a cookie file, which is necessary to prevent unnecessary uninstalls each time the script is run.
