LabTech Plugin: dUninstaller
Posted on April 7, 2015
This plug-in allows you to configure dUninstaller so that you can run it on computers with unwanted software. It includes a plug-in to configure license information and whitelist/blacklist, as well as a script to perform the uninstalls. It can also be configured to run against any group on whatever schedule you like so that it keeps unwanted applications off of your client’s computers. This plugin works with LabTech 2013 – LabTech 11.
Note that this plugin requires that you purchase the dUninstaller application so that you have a valid license! To better detail what dUninstaller can do for you, here’s a walkthrough video.
Remove blacklisted applications easily using the power of dUninstaller! You can run the process manually, schedule it to occur as often as you like, or attach the script to a monitor and have it take place when blacklisted applications are detected automatically. Tickets can be created and (optionally) billable time attached for applications being removed. You can create your whitelists and blacklists manually, or use the lists from LabTech. You can also customize ticketing and lists on a per client location to allow more granular control. This single tool allows you to save hours of time removing unwanted applications.
New! This plugin has been updated to now use additional tools and steps to better remove unwanted applications from your managed computers. dUninstaller does the heavy lifting, but there’s some extra things going on to help remove more problematic applications. It’s working smarter AND harder!
Additionally, the plugin keeps track of how many applications it uninstalls and allows you to report on this. This means that you can easily view repetitive issue computers and generate Excel reports as a value-add for your clients and potential clients!
How do I use it?
– Install the plugin with the Plugin Installer.
– Open the dashboard > config > integrations > dUinstaller and enter your license information.
– The first run wizard will help you get your settings configured for scheduling, ticketing, billing and whitelist/blacklist construction.
If you let the plugin set up the alert template for you, or if you set up a schedule to run the script against a group, you’re done. However, you can do some additional tasks if desired:
– Open a computer and go to the dUninstaller tab.
– Applications are shown that match your filters so you can see what will be uninstalled.
– Click the button to execute the script and uninstall the blacklisted items.
– Client level options are set from the client window in the dUninstaller tab and allow you to specify lists and ticketing/billing override options.
