Greetings:

Today, I have tested creating and using a CC uninstall command-line application on MacOS to test how it would do with uninstalling applications, except for CC 2018.

Within the packager, I've chosen to cherry pick my choices of CC application versions to install, which were mainly 2016/2017 applications, but leave the 2018 ones alone. While a number of applications were uninstalled, more of them were not.

It turns after, after another round of testing with a second version of the uninstaller, that point releases (for instance, 15.0.1) will not uninstall. Five of these point releases, including After Effects, Photoshop and Premiere Pro, are point releases for CC 2017, but all of them did not have, say, 15.01 for Photoshop, available as one of the choices to remove via the command-line application.

I am assuming that the CC Packager that's generated is the most recent, so not sure why those point versions aren't available to choose before the package building process.

If there's a way that this can be resolved, it would surely best most welcome. Thank you!

Hi Velanche

I am not sure what sort of script you are using, but the most easy way of uninstalling apps is by creating a uninstall package and deploy it, or you can also use the XML file uninstall way mentioned in this link below.
