UninstallView is a new tool for Windows that collects information about all software installed on your computer and display the detail of them in one table. Developed by NirSoft, it’s a free and portable tool that replaces MyUninstaller, a similar tool originally developed in 2003 and now outdated. It also works on any version of Windows, from XP and all the way up to Windows 10, with both 32-bit and 64-bit supported.
Since it’s portable, you don’t need any installation process or additional DLL files to run the tool. Simply run the executable file, UninstallView will scan the local system and collects all information about the software installed on the system.
To load installed software information from a remote computer, click the Advanced Options icon next to the Recycle bin, and select Remote computer from Load From drop-down list.
You can also use it to get installed programs information for your local system, for a remote computer on your network, and for external hard-drive plugged to your computer. It also allows you to easily uninstall a software on your local computer or a remote computer (including quiet uninstall if the installer supports it).
To uninstall a program, simply right-click the name of the program and choose Uninstall Selected Software or Quietly Uninstall Selected Software without displaying any user interface.
Uninstalling a software on a remote computer is a bit tricky. It allows you to uninstall a software on a remote computer by using the PsExec tool from SysInternals/Microsoft. You have to put PsExec.exe in the same folder of UninstallView.exe and then the uninstall options will be enabled when connecting a remote machine.
Overall, UninstallView could be a handy uninstall tool that not only provides you with much more detailed information about the software installed on your computer but lets you uninstall them quietly as well.
