We need to automate uninstallation of hotfix KB2459120 from Windows 7 64 bit systems. Office 2010 32 bit is installed on the systems.

We have noticed that after installation of said hotfix, it shows above hotfix three times in the add/remove programs & registry as well. It allows to uninstall of all three items & registry gets also removed.

Registry key shows below uninstallation strings:

 

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE14\Oarpmany.exe" /removereleaseinpatch "{90140000-0016-0413-0000-0000000FF1CE}" "{F7A300FB-724C-4DF1-AF47-504A974314B1}" "1043" "0"

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE14\Oarpmany.exe" /removereleaseinpatch "{90140000-0018-0413-0000-0000000FF1CE}" "{F7A300FB-724C-4DF1-AF47-504A974314B1}" "1043" "0"

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE14\Oarpmany.exe" /removereleaseinpatch "{90140000-001B-0413-0000-0000000FF1CE}" "{F7A300FB-724C-4DF1-AF47-504A974314B1}" "1043" "0"

 

If run the same from command prompt it asks for confirmation about update removal & it gets completed successfully. However I am not able to automate uninstallation of the said hotfix. I tried adding parameters /qn & /qb but not successfull.

Please suggest.
