Can Radmind be used to uninstall an application?

Yes, radmind can remove or uninstall an application or any other item. When fsdiff is run, it marks for deletion any filesystem object in a managed directory that does not exist in any loadset.

So, you can use radmind to remove items put on the desktop or in folders that are not part of the original set.

Also, if the user installs an application radmind will remove it if it is not part of any machine loadset. An admin can modify the command file either adding or removing OS or software loadsets. This is very useful if you create loadsets for software/OS updates and find a bug/issue with the update. Radmind allows you to downgrade easily to the previous version, if necessary.
