Uninstall with password

Jump to solution

I'm wanting to uninstall Advanced Threat Protection, Threat Protection, Firewall, and Platform using the command line (Windows 10). I have the msiexec string, but how to I pass the password to the uninstall so I don't have to manually enter it each time?

I'm running ePO with ENS 10.7 and Agent 5.6.3.

You can use the /PASSWORD switch directly in the command line.
Example: C:\Program Files\McAfee\Endpoint Security\Firewall\RepairCache\SetupFW.exe /x /removeespsynchronously /PASSWORD=xxxxx

Where xxxxx is your password.

Of course, you know you can just create a task in ePO to uninstall any particular product. No password required as long as ePO is managing the system. One task can be applied to individual systems or groups or the entire enterprise.

Then, of course, there is the Remover tool. This can be run locally or from ePO. 

Why do you need to re-invent the wheel?

I can, but I'm wanting to do it manually on-the-fly for testing.

Hello @nthnu ,

There are 2 methods you can proceed with.

1. As @awbattelle suggested, creating a removal task from the EPO for specific product.

2. Using Endpoint Product Removal tool to uninstall McAfee products
