Uninstall DirectAccess Connectivity Assistant 2.0

You can find the ‘DirectAccess Connectivity Assistant 2.0’ here:

This handy little tool is provided as an msi, which operates as a wrapper for the msu contained within. I was finding it hard to uninstall so I asked my colleague and software deployment expert and he provided me with this magic:

pkgmgr /up:Microsoft-DirectAccess-Connectivity-Assistant-Package-TopLevel~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~7.1.7601.18340

Which did the trick (at least for the x64 version).

This info came from https://support.microsoft.com/kb/940410 combined with some poking about inside the msi with 7-zip.

    All,
    That command did the trick for Window7x64. Below is the package manager command for x86 incase anyone is interested.

    pkgmgr /up:Microsoft-DirectAccess-Connectivity-Assistant-Package-TopLevel~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~7.1.7601.18340

    Thanks,

    Dan P.
