Hello everyone,

After discovering how to add Outlook 2007 PROFESSIONAL to an existing installation of Office, I'm now challenged with the task of how to remove it via a config.xml file. I need to make a short .bat file so it can be used for deployment.

Here is what I have so far:

1. The confg file I named uninstall_outlook.xml looks like this:

<Configuration Product="ProPlus">
<Display Level="Basic" CompletionNotice="No" SuppressModal="Yes" NoCancel="Yes"/>
<Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="NEVER"/>

2. The command line to uninstall that I have looks like this:

\\server\share\office2007\setup.exe /uninstall /config \\server\share\office2007\ProPlus.WW\uninstall_outlook.xml

Nothing happens. I check the local Office 2007 folder and outlook.exe and their components are still present. I have admin rights on the machine.

Any suggestions? I was thinking that something might have to be changed in the .xml file such as the <configuration product> tag...


I was reading some posts and someone mentioned that you have to specify what you want to install... For example:

\\server\share\office2007\setup.exe /uninstall OUTLOOK /config \\server\share\office2007\ProPlus.WW\uninstall_outlook.xml

That didn't work for me.

What else didn't I try?

Thank you
