    @Saad Farooq
    Thank you for your post and I apologize for the delayed response! When it comes to uninstalling the Azure Information Protection (classic) client via SCCM, I wasn't able to find any documentation on this, so I don't believe this is possible, but you should be able to follow the steps below to uninstall the Azure Information Protection (classic) client.

    You can uninstall the Azure Information Protection (classic) client using any of the following options:

    1. Use Control Panel to uninstall a program: Click Microsoft Azure Information Protection > Uninstall
    2. Rerun the executable (for example, AzInfoProtection.exe), and from the Modify Setup page, click Uninstall.
    3. Run the executable with /uninstall. For example: AzInfoProtection.exe /uninstall

    If you have any other questions, please let me know.
    Thank you for your time and patience throughout this issue.

    Thank you so much for sharing your findings , although quite informative and helpful , However just have some points before executing this scipt?

    1) Does this script restart client PC since as mentioned in blog that it silently uninstalled APPs and if need to adjust sleep time. Basically we have bulk client machines having several Old AIP clients different versions installed and all we need to do silently uninstalled Old Versions on client machine without Reboot and also need to installed new AIP client at same time. Did your script do that silently uninstall APPS without reboot User machine???For Install New AIP client do we need to create new Package else than that???

    2) Secondly in which Part of Script we can mentioned Old AIP versions , Here in your script Firefox Mentioned with * so it means it uninstalled all Versions of Firefox???

    $appToMatch = 'FireFox'
    $fullinventory = $false

    $fullinventory = $true

    Ok get it so currently we have 5 different versions of Old AIP Clients installed v1.0-1.4 on different end user machine. I just need to ask as per shared script do I need to mentioned each version or just replace Firefox with Azure Information Protection Like that or any other changes also required as per shared script???
