    OK, so I have a version of DVD architect (5.0) installed in a classroom, and I cant simply supercede the version by installing the 6.0 version, as Sony are slightly stupid.
    So, I went to do the same thing I did with Sony Movie Studio 12:

    Select computers in domain controller, load up SpecOps and run exectuable with the following code in the two fields:

    C:\Windows\System32\msiexec.exe
    /X{1C8AC59F-6464-11E2-A0C0-F04DA23A5C58} /q

    This then sends the command to uninstall Sony Movie Studio 12 (just the video editing software)

    I got the ProductCode from the registry under Software/Windows/Uninstall and found the ProductCode there from the string modifier.

    I can then deploy an MSI with the right perameters for a site license.

    I'm trying to do the same with DVD Architect, but I cant find the ProductCode string, or any reference of an uninstaller for DVD Architect in the registry.

    So I need to know either the code I can enter with SpecOps or need a command line I can use to find out the ProductCode for a specific program installed on a local machine.

    If anyone cares, I managed to solve this by using the following command in Windows Powershell:

    gwmi Win32_Product -Filter "Name LIKE '%DVD Architect%'"

    This returned the Product Info code
