AutoCAD and Revit 2011 Network uninstall Group Policy

We've just deployed Revit 2012 and AutoCAD2012 to around 80 users. We're using a network license file, if that matters. I'm trying to figure out the best way to remove the 2011 versions of each product from the computers of users.


As far as my research has shown, there isn't an uninstall switch for the installer. Previously we were using a script that brute force ripped out the products, but it doesn't seem like that's the most efficient way. Please let me know if there's an easier way.

It is difficult to have clean script which will remove everything which was installed as some pre-requistes are shared between multiple products.


If it was pushed using the GPO and msi files, when you remove it from GPO it should uninstall the MSI, (if you choose that option)


But pre-requisites/add-ons might need some extra bit

please check this script for Autocad 2011


If the installation was done using setup.exe you can use following comand line to uninstall (Autocad 2011 32 bit English)


Setup.exe /Q /P {5783F2D7-9001-0409-0002-0060B0CE6BBA} /R ACAD /LANG en-US



just the msiexec to remove it.


MSIEXEC /X{5783F2D7-9001-0409-0002-0060B0CE6BBA} 

MSIEXEC /X{5783F2D7-9001-0409-1002-0060B0CE6BBA}  (for the Language pack)
