Command line support
Revo Uninstaller Pro supports command line options and has a command processor: RevoCmd.exe.
RevoCmd.exe can be used to list installed programs on a computer. It can be used to list programs by a part of their name, and it can also show the installation location and the uninstallation command of a program, which can be then used to start its built-in uninstaller.
RevoCmd /m “program name” [/i] [/u] [/p]
/m – match program name using wildcard characters – * and ?
The asterisk (*) wildcard represents any collection of characters
The question mark (?) wildcard represents any single character
Example: RevoCmd /m Microso*
Shows all programs beginning with the name Microso
/i – Include Install Location if exists
/u – Include Uninstall command
/p – Pause on each page
/? or /help – This help
