Uninstalling OpenVPN Connect Client

New Contributor III

The installation package for Open VPN Connect Client does not uninstall the previous version. I am looking for a way to uninstall the old version; is there a way to accomplish this other than running an rm -f command?

I tried the instructions here but the 'Uninstall' option does not show up in the drop-down. https://docs.jamf.com/10.6.0/jamf-pro/administrator-guide/Uninstalling_Packages.html
I also noticed the old version has an "Uninstall OpenVPN.app" in the same folder, but when I try to run a policy with this app, I see this error: Installation failed. The zip file contained no package..

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Did you manage to figure out a way to do this? I am thinking of removing it from the Applications folders and installing OpenVPN v3.0 but would ideally like to use the uninstall OpenVPN.app so that all associated files are deleted.

Sorry for the late reply. I ended up creating a policy with script+package.
Script should as simple as this but you can add anything to stop OpenVPN if running:

# this is a simple script to remove the Old OpenVPN Client.
cd /
cd Applications
sudo rm -Rf OpenVPN

The .pkg should run after the script.

Is there a current script for OPENVPN install? I have been searching and this is the only string I end up at. Any help is greatly appreciated.
