There is also an option to rollback to a previous PickMeApp version.

8.4. Advanced options

You can enable capture and installation of an application with the current custom user settings. This is an experimental feature.

To make application capture safer you can disable capturing of applications that are currently run.

To make an installation process quicker you may disable a PickMeapp checking integrity of installed applications.
Note: some of applications are fixed automatically by PickMeApp during that test.

8.5. PickMeApp Command Line Interface


You can work with the PickMeApp using command line.  PickMeApp supports the following convention

  pickmeapp.exe  <command> <argument>

  /l    receive list of installed software
  /g   capture application
  /i     install application
  /u   uninstall application

   pickmeapp.exe /l

The example above creates PMAOutput.txt file in the PickMeApp folder.
This file contains ID of installed applications and corresponding software names.

Example of the PMAOutput.txt:

{90140000-0011-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE}    Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010
{90140000-00A1-0409-0000-0000000FF1CE}    Microsoft Office OneNote MUI (English) 2010

PickMeApp uses software ID instead of software names, so you should use this file to select software to work with.

    pickmeapp.exe /g {90140000-001A-0409-0000-0000000FF1CE}    Outlook.tap capture.log

  - captures the Microsoft Outlook application (using  number {90140000-001A-0409-0000-0000000FF1CE}
  - creates the Outlook.tap file with captured application.
  - creates the capture.log file

   pickmeapp.exe /u {90140000-001A-0409-0000-0000000FF1CE} uninstall.log
