SCCM 1610 with all hotfixes.
Windows 10 Enterprise 1607.

I have an application that have two dependencies. It's setup so that both dependencies are installed before the application itself. Both of them are .msi files and both are recognized by SCCM with MSI Product Codes. The installation part is working fine.

But they are not uninstalled if I uninstall the main application (using the old control panel and/or Win 10 Settings / Apps).

The uninstall button is greyed out in Software Center.

How do I get the uninstall button in Software Center to uninstall the application and the two dependencies? Is it possible?

Regards

Not possible. Even if you added uninstall strings to your applications and all of its dependencies, the uninstall button will remain greyed out. This is by design.

Workarounds to perform a uninstall (if needed):

1 - Create a new application with a script that uninstall both dependencies and the software

2 - Deploy the dependencies and applications as a "UNINSTALL" deployment

Ok, thanks :)
