Detect whether or not an application is installed on the remote server

When you manage a windows server in core mode you can’t just open Control Panel -> Programs and Features to see whether or not particular application is installed.

Here’s the command for it:

wmic /node:server product where "Name LIKE '%name%'" get name,version

To uninstall it:

wmic /node:server product where "Name LIKE '%name%'" uninstall

Nkre: the later might not always work, probably depends on how its uninstaller was written.
