Need help - Unable to uninstall app through Powershell/Intune

Alim 6 Reputation points

Hi All,

I'm having some trouble with deploying a powershell script through our InTune enviroment. The script is set to uninstall the "Dell Command | Update" windows app but seems to be failing. I've checked the logs and can see it ran successfully. I also added a write-output to the C:\Temp folder so I knew it ran correctly.
Here is the script.

Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -scope Process -Force  
if (Get-AppxPackage DellInc.DellCommandUpdate) {  
Get-AppxPackage DellInc.DellCommandUpdate | Remove-AppxPackage  
else {  
if (Get-AppxPackage DellInc.DellUpdate) {  
Get-AppxPackage DellInc.DellUpdate | Remove-AppxPackage  
else {  
write-output "Script worked" | out-file c:\temp\outputDCU.txt  

Here is the success message

But the items still remains

If I run the script locally though the machine is works fine, it's just via InTune it seems to be failing.

Any help here would be highly appriciated.

Thanks in advance :)

    I have the same problem with uninstalling apps via powershell script in Intune.

    In win32 app configuration I use
    powershell.exe -executionpolicy bypass .\uninstall.ps1

    the uninstall script contains nothing fancy, mostly like
    Get-Process 7zFM* | Stop-Process -Force -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
    Start-Process "$env:ProgramFiles\7-Zip\uninstall.exe" -ArgumentList "/S" -wait

    All scripts works fine when I run them on the machine itself, but not via Intune.
    Installing a win32 app with the comandline mentioned above also works (the installscript is basicly the same and contains Start-Process "$PSScriptRoot\7z-setup.exe" -argumentlist "/S" -wait)
