Hi!

I just read this post from @omidsolo:
https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects/prevent-maxon-cinema-4d-force-install/td-p/10695447/pag...

Besides I completelly agree with him and I don't want software to be installed behind my back that hardly anyone needs, I tried to uninstall all Adobe apps which are included in the "All Apps" msi template. This is offered for download in the Admin Console. After uninstalling them trough the "Uninstall" button by rightclicking the msi, I found Maxon Cinema 4D still sitting on my PC without even knowing it was installed with the rest of the Adobe apps before, since it's not listed in "Applications included" in the Admin Console. This is very cheeky and in my eyes very unprofessional, and I just wanted to leave this here! I have now the problem that I should be able to silent uninstall all Adobe apps for use in SCCM but I just can't, since I don't think I'm able to uninstall Maxon with the command line. If there is an MSI Code for it or something like this please let me know.

As an SCCM admin I would like to know the same. How can we silently uninstall Cinema 4D when silently uninstalling After Effects?

Removing the C4D Lite app and rendering engine disables many key features in After Effects, will cause a hang or crash if you try and enable the C4D rendering engine, and limits your ability to use many useful features, and only gains you about 800 MB of disk space. If you are killing your system by having an additional 800 MB of files in your applications folder then your system probably does not meet the minimum system requirements recommended for After Effects and your creative options are already severely limited. Deleting or uninstalling Maxon makes about as much sense as deleting plug-ins you don't think you will ever use. I have the entire Red Giant Suite, Saphire, Boris FX, Video Copilot effects packages installed so I have several hundred plugins installed as well as a couple of hundred scripts, about 600 animation presets that I created, and a bunch that I have bought. I could save a bit of disk space if I deleted the ones that I don't use often or even the ones that I can't remember ever using, but if I was up against a deadline and had a design problem that could only be solved efficiently by using something like Saphire's S_Zap, which I have never used, I would kick myself while I missed the deadline.

i reserved for audio production. i could care less about after effects and c4d.

 

i shouldnt be forced to install apps i dont use WITHOUT notice.
