Windows 7: WMIC command help

07 Mar 2013   #1

Windows 7 Enterprise x64
WMIC command help

Hope this is the right place for this.
I support the software updates in an enterprise. When pushing out the newest Java, I use a WMIC command in a batch file to uninstall all previous versions before installing the newest.

wmic product where "name like 'java%%'" call uninstall /nointeractive

It has come to my attention that this command is also uninstalling the Java Development Kit from the developers PCs. They are not happy.

I'm trying to modify this command to uninstall the JRE while leaving the JDK. How can I use the "Description" property of the "Product" in the above command? The description of the JRE is "Java..." (for example) while the description of the JDK is "Java SE Develpopment Kit...". This difference would allow me to do what I need, but I don't know how.

Thank you.
