Uninstall desktop application from control panel by VB script

Sub UninstallApplication(computerName, applicationName)

  Dim wmiService, objectsList, ObjService
  Set wmiService = GetObject("WinMgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\"& computerName & "\root\cimv2")
  Set objectsList = wmiService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_Product " & "WHERE Name='" & applicationName & "'")

  For Each ObjService in ObjectsList

End Sub

    You really haven't given us any information to work with here.  What happens when you try it in Windows 10?

        Keep in mind Windows 10 UAC is much different than Windows 7.  It could be that Windows 10 UAC is set to a level that does not allow that uninstall.  Try adjusting the UAC settings on your Windows 10 box to the lowest setting and try again.
