    Cant Remove Some Programs


    I have tried using code to remove programs through powershell like, Microsoft Feedback, Contact Support, etc. Some programs are removed but not others. When I try to I get an error. See the screenshot of the error I get when I try to.

    Your Powershell command appears to start with
    Contact support

    Is that really what you meant? Look carefully at the error message..

    I thought the Powershell is broken since our last update, have to wait till MS fixes it.

    Hi, I was aware of this about DSC (does that not working mean uninstalling a universal app doesn't work?).. the temporary 'fix' being to uninstall the cumulative update - and presumably block it!

    All DSC operations will result in an "Invalid Property" error.
    - so presumably if you don't get that you're ok... maybe!

    Has any other aspect been reported?

    Powershell works fine. DSC has issues.

    You appear to have copied and pasted more text than you intended to. Remove the "Contact Support" part.

    Also, I don't believe the Contact Support app is installed in Windows 10 Anniversary Update, just the Feedback Hub.

    I dont understand. If I remove "Contact Support" from the powershell command, how will Win 10 know which program to uninstall? It makes no sense:

    Remove-AppxPackage -Confirm -Package Windows.ContactSupport_10.0.3.0_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy


    And what do you mean by "win 10 anniversary update"? Do I need to download this update?

    Windows.ContactSupport_10.0.3.0_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy

    identifies what is to be removed.The upgrade should be offered- should have already been offered- if you've not got it. Windows updates and upgrades are provided unless you block them automatically. However, there are various bugs some but not all encounter that MS is working on to fix. If you have e.g. the Pro version, you may prefer to defer it.To check:
    Press Windows key + R, type winver
    If you see 1607, you already have it. 1511 was the provious major build from Nov 2015

    Contact Support App is still installed on mine. Version: 1607 Build# 1493.82
    And Mystere is correct you copied and pasted way more than needed. Here is a link from Brink that shows you how to remove your apps.
