uninstalling adobe Acrobat via Group Policy – multiple versions / releases

My Problem was:

1- Various installation of Adobe Acrobat.

2- Customer is targeting specific Adobe Acrobat build (11.0.16).

3- If you used below articles will help you to uninstall ANY Acrobat with version 11 regardless of minor build version.

4- I did follow the below articles for releases before 11.

5- For Acrobat 11 I made additional script to remove any 11.0.X , so it will ignore existing already installed 11.0.16 and remove any other minor previous releases:
