[Solved] Removal support for "EXE" updates

Topics: Misc.
Oct 7, 2013 at 2:57 PM
Hello,

it seems to me that it is only possible to approve updates for uninstallation when the update is MSI based. EXE based updates don't give me this option. I think this is because MSI update parameters are added automatically by the wsus logic and the API doesn't offer options for this case - right?

Do you see any way to import EXE updates with option to uninstallation? maybe with different command lines for install / uninstall? Or is the only way to import the update twice with different command lines?

Thanks in advance for you answer.

You are right. Wsus agent only know how to uninstall MSI files. This is a restriction in the API.

This is how I do.
