a feature proposition - batch uninstall

02 May 2011, 17:20

much hope to see UT3 and while using 2, i've got an idea- how about making a feature to check few(or more programs) in one turn, and then UT searchs for leftover files of them all? it could save much time when testing and then uninstalling bunch of soft ;)
but maybe you already got such idea, or planned UT3 uninstall-behavior conflicts with such, than it's ok.

Update: Uninstall Tool 3.2 is able to perform batch force removal and batch remove entries!!

Dear eil,

Thank you very much for your feedback. Uninstall Tool 3.0 is currently under active development, it's a brand new program written from scratch.

Regarding your idea. Do you mean to do Force Removal of multiple programs? (without running their uninstall programs)?

no, i mean user chooses programs to be uninstalled, then uninstallers of each program runs one after another, and then UT clears the leftover of them all in one.
at least, for the moment, i couldn't think up any other way of bunch uninstalling.
thanks for the respond and hope UT3 will be the best as UT2 does.

Batch uninstall feature is planned, but we cannot guarantee that it will appear right in 3.0 version
Thank you.

how will it work?
will it be able to first use native uninstallers of several apps and then search for left-overs of all those?

No batch uninstall. There will be even a special article about that.

Here's a screenshot:

eil, fixed! Thank you :good:

The problem was in Ice Book Reader packed executable (not in batch operation), Uninstall Tool crashed when parsing its export functions.

Will prepare a new beta build now.
