Is there a way to prevent the agent from displaying the machine name and IP address in Add/Remove Programs or Programs and Features?
Yes, create a script to change the Discription in the registry
its located here
I use a procedure to check for the registry key and - if it exists - set the "SystemComponent" to "1".
So, for 32-bit I test the existence of the following Registry Key:
and if it exists I create
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\<companyIDHash>\SystemComponent and set the Reg_DWORD to 1.
Now, this simply hides the agent entry from appearing in the "Add | Remove Programs" or "Programs and Features". It does not specifically hide the items that the original poster is requesting....
Naturally, for 64-bit the Registry Key to be tested would be similar: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432NODE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\<companyIDHash>
This might help someone......
Hi Cary, my script simply changes the key for the display in the add remove program, no muss no fuss, it deploys with the agent... hiding the add/remove entry can be done a couple of different ways.
