Removing Windows Intune client (4 methods)

Hi there, just a quick and simple overview on how to remove a Windows Intune client installation.

Method 1

The best way of achieving this would be to retire the client from the Windows Intune admin console. This removes the client software on the target systems.

Method 2

If you don't have access to the admin console (for whatever reasons) uninstalling a recent version of the client can only be done with the help of some batch scripts and an executable which can be downloaded from Microsoft.

After executing the exe some files will be extracted. Copy these files to the client and execute the batch files (method 2):
  • AgentUninstall_AIS.cmd
  • AgentUninstall_Intune.cmd
After some time the folder C:\Program Files\Microsoft\OnlineManagement should only hold some logfiles. Reboot the client.

At this moment you can enroll the client into Windows Intune again or install a SCCM client to manage the client again.

Method 3

  1. Open an admin command prompt
  2. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Microsoft\OnlineManagement\Common
  3. Run “ProvisioningUtil /UninstallAgents WindowsIntune” (method 3)

Method 4

Uninstall is also possible via WMI.
