When you perform an unattended installation of Workstation, you can skip the installation of certain features by specifying the REMOVE property in the installation command.

To specify a REMOVE property value in the installation command, use the format REMOVE=value. To skip multiple features, separate each value with a comma, for example, REMOVE=value,value.
