How to create a uninstall project for Adobe Acrobat Reader software
In this „how to“ guide we will demonstrate how you can create a uninstall project that can be used to remove/uninstall Adobe Acrobat Reader
software remotely from your network computers in a silent mode operation.
Please make sure you have downloaded our ZOLA Remote Software Uninstall product from our website to get the latest version available and
install it under administrator rights.

Before we continue to create the uninstall project for the Acrobat Reader software make sure you have already downloaded the latest version
or the exact version of the software you want to uninstall from your remote computers and we also recommend you to use a VMWARE, Oracle
VirtualBox etc... client running a fresh/clean version of the Windows operating system without any other products installed. In this case the
product will only focus on capturing files and registry related to the software you are creating the uninstall project for.
First we need to install Acrobat Reader software where our ZOLA Remote Software Uninstall product is installed, this is important as we are
going to scan the whole file and registry system locally for maximum performance.
Install Acrobat Reader now with your default settings.
Acrobat Reader software installed successfully.
Now execute ZOLA Remote Software Uninstall product and click on the „Create Search Criteria“ button to create your uninstall project criteria.
From the „Scan Criteria Wizard“ you can enter your search keywords manually or use the built-in search criteria wizard. In this guide we will use the built-in wizard and to continue click on the „Execute Wizard“ button.
Search Criteria wizard showing up, now we need to scan the computer where we installed the Acrobat Reader software. Click „Scan Local/Remote Host(s)“ button to continue.
From the „Select Computers“ dialog we are going to have the local computer assigned and leave all other options as default. Click „Scan Now“ button to continue.
Now lets focus on locating the items related to the Acrobat Reader software and check them. Once you check an item they will be added automatically into the search criteria box.
We now have search items available. Click „OK“ button to continue
To continue and scan the local computer for words matching for your Acrobat Reader software click next on the „Scan Now“ button.
Now the product is scanning the local computer for our search terms and will return all matched file and registry items required for the uninstallation process.
Search criteria scanning completed and the product will show us the results in a full featured „Project Editor“ where you can add, delete or modify the results before saving it as a project. Click „Save“ button to continue.
Give your project a name and a description and click „OK“ button to continue.
Acrobat Reader uninstall project is now ready and can be found from the „Available Search Results“ tab.
Now lets remove the Acrobat Reader application using our new created project from the same computer we installed it on. Right click on the Acrobat Reader project and select the „Uninstall Search Criteria Results“ item to continue.
From the „Execute Action“ dialog you can manage your remote computers you want to uninstall the selected project from. In this guide we will
uninstall the project from the same computer we created the project.. Click next on the „Execute Now“ button to continue and uninstall the
Acrobat Reader project from the „WIN8-ENT“ computer. „Note“ The uninstall operation is silent and without any end user interuption and if there
are any files that are in use during the uninstallation process they will be removed on the next computer reboot.
The ZOLA Remote Software Uninstall is now removing all files and registry available in the project.
Uninstall Acrobat Reader project completed, you can view the uninstallation results from the „Detailed Results“ tab. „Note“ The result can also be exported into several popular formats.
Acrobat Reader application removed successfully.
„Note“ Our product is comes with a unique uninstall engine that can remove files that are in use and a complete removal will be the results.
