Removing games from a Windows XP install.

Because these are core setup files they have to be removed via Windows Setup. The utility sysocmgr.exe can be used in this case. The following command line can be used with the contents of the remgames.txt as per below. (This will be added to the next SOE agency release)

sysocmgr /i:%windir%infsysoc.inf /u:c:remgames.txt /q

(This was from a colleague, Tim Moon, back in June 2004.)

The remgames.txt file looked like this:
[Components]
Solitaire=off
Spider=off
FreeCell=off
Hearts=off
Minesweeper=off
