Does anyone know how to make the Officescrub10 utility run silently and to suppress a restart? I’m testing this as part of our Office 2013 rollout. I need to get office 2010 32 bit to uninstall silently, suppressing restarts, so i can get office 2013 64 bit to install

  • It nevers ceases to amaze me that people use this type of utility, especially "packagers".

    Look, an application - or even a suite like Office - is just a bunch of files and registry data. Instead of foolng around with some half-baked tool - which does who knows what to your workstations - find out why the new app isn't removing stuff cleanly.

    If you're really stumped after that, then the solution is simple: build an uninstall MSI which unregisters all the DLLs (it's not hard to find these - they all have the word "DLLUnregister" in them!), deletes the app's root folder and any other extraneous folders it may have sprayed around.

Found some info on Scrub07 - which shows the switches you can use.

You would hope that they would be the same: http://blogs.technet.com/b/odsupport/archive/2011/04/08/how-to-obtain-and-use-offscrub-to-automate-the-uninstallation-of-office-products.aspx

Can you not use the /uninstall switch, and then specify a config file using the /config switch to uninstall? 

<Configuration Product="ProPlus">

 

<Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" /> -->

<Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="Never" /> -->
