In this post i am going to explain vb scripting using a example.Using the given below VBScript we can uninstall the Java Version 8.0.600.27-64 If you are unaware of any type of programming language/concepts of object etc please go through the link first 'VB Script.
Usually, the key for the program will be its GUID, or else the name of the program. Within that key will be an entry called Uninstall. String. This contains the command to execute to uninstall the program. If you already know ahead of time what you will be uninstalling, it should be easy enough to just put that in your batch file. It gets tricky when you try to automate that process though.
You can use the reg command to get data from the registry, but it returns a lot of text around the actual value of a given key, making it hard to use. You may want to experiment with using VBscript or Power. Shell, as they have better options for getting data from the registry into a variable.

Uninstall MSI with VBScript . Whether that other application is a previous version of the new application or just something that isn't compatible with the new application.

Note that this script will only handle MSI- based applications, however I will be providing some more scripts to assist with uninstalling non- msi based applications as well. All you need to get this working for you is the Product Code of the installed MSI that you want to uninstall.

When you view the property table, you will see the Product.
