How to make a ZENworks package that force-uninstalls an MSI application.

  1. Make a new application object using an existing application object. Select the object that you created to install the MSI with.
  2. Add the following property value:
    REMOVE with the value of ALL

This uses an internal property called "REMOVE" and the value of "ALL" tells MSIexec to remove all features (uninstall everything).
