Completely uninstall Visual Studio Client Detector Utility - Microsoft Visual Studio Setup WMI Provider

Joe Conger 1 Reputation point

I recently approved the Visual Studio Client Detector through WSUS. I believe it is KB5001148. This update broke my network management tool I use to deploy software updates on Windows 10.
The vendor indicates that the VSCD changed the "WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) call location". An uninstall of the Microsoft Visual Studio Setup WMI Provide update does not change back the WMI call location. Does anyone have an idea on how to manually fix this or how to restore the settings?

    This problem has been encountered by others recently. VSCD changed many things in the registry.
