After removing the Print Management Administration Pack using Control Panel / Add or Remove Programs on Window XP, you install the Print Management Administration Pack again.

You can no longer remove the Print Management Administration Pack using Control Panel / Add or Remove Programs.

To workaround this behavior, I have scripted RemovePMAP.bat to remove the Print Management Administration Pack.

To remove the Print Management Administration Pack, open a CMD.EXE window and type RemovePMAP.

RemovePMAP.bat contains:
