By dion.nandoo ·
I was testing a trail version of SMS, now that its done I have uninstalled it from the server but it still appears on client workstations.
Any suggestions how to remove the SMS client from these worksations.

A few choices:

Wait for the client to deinstall itself after 30 days of not being able to contact the site server.

Run utility SMS support tool utility 20CLICLN.BAT on each workstation

Add the following key to the client registry(taking theusual precautions with editing the registry)

Key: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\Client\Client Configuration\Client PropertiesValue: SMS Client Deinstall
Type: Reg_SZ Value: True

Then recycle the SMS Client Service or wait for a reboot

We usually use the deinstall.bat file on one of our servers. This batch file removes SMS from the workstation we wish to clean......Do you have such a file? You can reach me at
