Version 4



    The purpose of this document is to provide a batch file to use with the Custom Actions feature in Shavlik Protect and Ivanti Patch for Windows Servers to uninstall Java up through version 7 update 75.




    You will need to set up a Custom Actions Scan Template, this will scan for a Null Patch and allow you to deploy your custom action without actually deploying any patches.

    Create a Deployment Template with Custom Actions that will push out the uninstall Java batch file to the target machine, and to run the batch file.

    The batch file is attached to this document.
