Uninstall Bloomberg Office Tools

I need help to silently uninstall Bloomberg Office Tools. It has an uninstall shortcut:

"C:\blp\API\Office Tools\unwpxy.exe" "C:\ProgramData\{D741AF74-02F8-4918-AF66-1127ABDAFFDE}\UninstallOT.exe" MODIFY=FALSE REMOVE=TRUE


I have tried to run it through 2 separate files

"C:\blp\API\Office Tools\unwpxy.exe" and

"C:\ProgramData\{D741AF74-02F8-4918-AF66-1127ABDAFFDE}\UninstallOT.exe"  with several different combinations of parameters. 

I have tried: Execute-Process -Path '"C:\blp\API\Office Tools\unwpxy.exe" "$envProgramData\{D741AF74-02F8-4918-AF66-1127ABDAFFDE}\UninstallOT.exe"' -Parameters "MODIFY=FALSE REMOVE=TRUE"

I even tried to run "C:\ProgramData\{D741AF74-02F8-4918-AF66-1127ABDAFFDE}\UninstallOT.exe" as a parameter :)


I dont have a problem with uninstall of Bloomberg terminal because its uninstall shortcut point only to one file. I uninstall it like this:

Execute-Process -Path "$envProgramData\{6D1CADCF-370D-4D81-9C6D-2AB09C08F34D}\sotrt.exe" -Parameters "REMOVE=TRUE /s"

I don't know the Kace stuff at all but I'd guess that it's passing the parameters to the first EXE. Build a CMD and run that instead.

$ParamaterU = "$envProgramData\{D741AF74-02F8-4918-AF66-1127ABDAFFDE}\UninstallOT.exe MODIFY=FALSE REMOVE=TRUE"

Execute-Process -Path "$envSystemDrive\blp\API\Office Tools\unwpxy.exe" -Parameters $ParamaterU

Avoid using hardcode values in script .

Difference between ' and " using in command line.

  • Thanks man!
    It works.
    I used this code for silent uninstall:
    $ParamaterU = "$envProgramData\{D741AF74-02F8-4918-AF66-1127ABDAFFDE}\UninstallOT.exe MODIFY=FALSE REMOVE=TRUE"
    Execute-Process -Path "$envSystemDrive\blp\API\Office Tools\unwpxy.exe" -Parameters "$ParamaterU /s" - bananaman 4 years ago
