Command Prompt will now launch with administrator permissions. To uninstall a program using Command Prompt, you have to use the Windows Management Instrumentation Command-line (WMIC) software utility.

At the prompt, type the following command, and then press Enter:

wmic
You’ll now see the wmic:root

cli> prompt in the console. This means you can now use Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) operations. Next, you’ll want a list of the programs installed on your computer. Getting this list is essential because you must provide an accurate product name to successfully execute the uninstall command.

Type the following command to get the list:

product get name Tip: You can also run wmic commands directly from the standard command line, without running wmic and entering the WMIC prompt first. To do so, prepend them with wmic. For example, wmic product get name works the same as running wmic, and then product get name. Find the name of the program you want to uninstall from the list. You can uninstall the program by running this command:

product where name=\program name\ call uninstall Just replace program name with the name of the program you want to install. For example, if we want to uninstall the Skype Meetings App, we would type this command:

product where name=\skype meetings app\ call uninstall The application has now been uninstalled from your computer.
