BBCA tuner - Need Uninstall Script

Santosh NameToUpdate



We have created BBCA tuner with folowing restrictions:


1. Tuner icon won't be displayed on System Tray.

2. Uninstall Option is restricted for users ( User's won't be able to Uninstall the Tuner, even if they have administrative privilleges on desktops/servers)


Now, I understand that, BBCA tuner can be uninstalled directly from the BBCA server console. However, I would need a script or a batch file which can do the uninstallation. This is my specific requirement as I cannot share the application admin rights to all my fellow administrators.


It would be really helpful, if someone can share the Uninstall Script or a batch file which can does the uninstallation. I am refereing to only windows machines here.


Any pointers in acheiving this would also be helpful and much appreciated.


Thanks, Santosh

    Here is the update.


    Given below are the methods to uninstall the tuner. I hope this may help some one.


    Method 1


    1. Stop Tuner Service.

    2. Go to C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BBCA\Tuner\.marimba\Tuner  folder and open Prefs.txt file.

    3. Add add / modify following line in the file and save the file.


    4. Start the Tuner service

    5. Under Add/Remove Programs Remove button will be visible against Tuner for Uninstallation .


    Method 2


    1. Run following command to uninstall Tuner.

    msiexec /uninstall {89D47415-9219-0F0D-A71E-70C7FD128E41} /qn /norestart


    {89D47415-9219-0F0D-A71E-70C7FD128E41} is the GUID of Tuner , This value can  be fetched from BBCA Reports. GUID value will change depending on your n/w environment but it will remain same for all the tuners if you are using same Profile.


    "msiexec /uninstall {89D47415-9219-0F0D-A71E-70C7FD128E41} /qn /norestart" - you can create a batch file or .exe file if you wish to do so.
