Thanks Matt. I knew that this is not going to work as I was getting the similar error as explained by you that such method does not exist.
Question here is what is the alternative? Any other way to reinstall?
Sorry, been out this week and not had a chance to reply.
In your original post you say that the applications are showing as failed status in Software Centre. In SCCM these clients should also be showing that they failed to install. Is there any reason you are not re-running the deployment from SCCM rather than trying to re-run the software installation on the client?
