Add an "remove all" feature to the NIPKG command line interface

The old installer had an option to remove all NI Software via the command line:

Automating Uninstallation of NI Software - National Instruments


While the nipk  command line interface has the "remove" option there is no "remove all" feature. It is only possible to remove single packages.

Hi Christian,


A quick question just to get a little more detail:


NIPM itself is installed as a package. Would you expect a 'remove all' command to also uninstall NIPM itself?

Hi Aaron,


thank you for your reply.


Yes, I would expect that the 'remove all' command also uninstalls the NIPM.


Best regards,

I think it would also be nice to have an option to remove all except for NIPM
