    Removes products prior to a specified version
    For example, if you are installing BTEQ from Teradata Tools and Utilities 17.00 and you need to uninstall packages prior to 14.10, enter the following command:
    • cscript uninstall_ttu.vbs BTEQ PIOM CLIv2 TDICU /PRIORTOVERSION:
    The version parameter must contain all four pairs of digits, and can be specific enough to remove all packages before, for example, Typically the last two pair of digits would just be 00.00.
    Removes all traces of the products by force

    The default is /FORCE:FALSE. If you specify /FORCE:TRUE, the installation process performs a thorough investigation of the registry for all known product keys and removes all traces. The process can take a long time. It is recommended that you use the /FORCE:TRUE option only if the default /FORCE:FALSE option did not successfully uninstall the products that you specified.

    For example, to force uninstallation of BTEQ, enter the following command:

    cscript uninstall_ttu.vbs BTEQ PIOM CLIv2 TDICU /FORCE:TRUE
