Description

The Remove-CMApplication cmdlet removes an application from Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager so that it cannot be installed by clients. This cmdlet does not remove any existing client installations.

Examples

Example 1: Get an application and remove it

PS C:\> Get-CMApplication -Name "Application1" | Remove-CMApplication -Force

The first command gets the application object named Application1 and uses the pipeline operator to pass the object to Remove-CMApplication, which removes the application. Specifying the Force parameter indicates that the user is not prompted before the application is removed.

Example 2: Remove an application by model name

PS C:\> Remove-CMApplication -ModelName "ScopeId_5E88BBB4-B1D1-4B74-8A4F-9E8B03BC1EB0/Application_7aa0ed27-6240-4070-a098-3edc9281dd96" -Force

This command removes the application object with the specified model name. Specifying the Force parameter indicates that the user is not prompted before the application is removed.
