The Uninstall Software (remote uninstall) tool used to require a Lansweeper license. If you are running an old version of this tool, you may get a warning that you are using an unregistered version or that uninstalling requires the premium version of Lansweeper. You may also be limited to 60 seconds of use. The solution to this problem is easy: use the latest version of Uninstall Software instead, which is free and does not require registration.
To get rid of the registration errors, do the following:
- Download the latest version of Uninstall Software. The latest version of the tool is free, does not require registration and will not prompt for a license. It will not generate warnings that uninstalling requires the premium version of Lansweeper.
- If you integrated the tool as an asset action into the Lansweeper web console, add its latest version to the Action Path folder listed in the web console under Configuration\Asset Pages. Your Action Path indicates where the web console will try to locate your action scripts and executables. By default, the Lansweeper installer shares the following folder on your Lansweeper server as Lansweeper$ is a shared folder of Program Files\Lansweeper\Actions which includes scripts & executables for running... and uses that as the Action Path:
Program Files (x86)\Lansweeper\ActionsUninstall Software has become obsolete since the arrival of Lansweeper 5.2, which includes software deployment features. As deployment packages can uninstall software as well, the Uninstall Software tool will no longer be updated or supported.
