While you create and deploy packages to client machines, you might also require to remove previously installed products and licenses. For example, if your organization migrated from Shared Device Licensing to Named User Licensing, uninstall all the products and licenses previously installed on the machine. Also, there's often the case when client machines may contain multiple versions of apps. Or, may be using conflicting licenses. Client machines, may be consuming extra licenses, which are not returned to the deployment pool.
In all these scenarios, we recommend that you use one of these procedures to uninstall the products and / or licenses on the client machines:

- Create uninstall package: Use this method if the package files (that you downloaded from the Admin Console) are unavailable. Read how to create an uninstall package.
- Bulk uninstall: Use the following third-party tools to uninstall the package in bulk (and remotely) on client machines:
