I need to uninstall Google Drive and install Google File Stream to all of our users. The install Google File Stream part is easy. I don't see an option to do a silent uninstall of Google Drive. Does anyone have a tip for that? Thanks!
You can navigate to the Audit module > Add/Remove and the uninstall string you can script in agent procedures is a get place to start.
This is a difficult task. We are working on the same thing. One problem is the user must close google drive/sign out before uninstall will complete.
JamesB - taskkill /f /im googledrivesync.exe
Too add to @S Mason inquiry; there is also a step in agent procedures to kill processes as well.
If you have access to ninitepro
executeshellcommand as system or user, probably system but maybe user-
ninitepro.exe /select "Google Drive" /uninstall /silent C:\whereveryouwantthelog\log.txt
Then if you wanted you could consume the log and email yourself the results in a send email. Probably need the task kill like Smason mentioned above too.
Or you could do the uninstall string but that would take some trial and error, I would suggest doing a report to pull all the strings so that once you find the correct command you can put all the iterations in.
Does it appear when you run this command:
wmic product get name
If so, you can use this to remove it:
wmic product where "name like '%%PRODUCT NAME%%'" call uninstall /nointeractive
(replace PRODUCT NAME with the name shown in the results of the first command)
