Re: uninstall software using WPKG

Hi John,

thank you very much.

I understand your answer in the following way:
Eachs package that exists and is not assigned to a profile will get uninstalled on all clients, that are
assigned to this profile.

Is that right?

Greetings

Alexander Ninnig

Remove the package line from the profile in profiles.xml.
