I am currently working on a project which involves the distibution of Microsoft Office 2003 Proffessional onto 250 workstations per computer based GPO.
I have sucsessfully created an msi and mst. The mst is configured to install the full installation with all options enabled and should ignore the previus installation state.
I can distribute this package with a GPO per user or per computer. The problem I have is with uninstalling this App on a single workstation. If I uninstall per GPO I will uninstall all of the Machines that use this GPO.
If I uninstall with control panel/software and reboot, my GPO installs a "mini" version of office without any apps. (word, excel etc..). I tried running msiexec /FAMSU, but this just reinstalled the "mini" office without any apps.
What I would like to know is How can I set my workstation to a state that will install office as if it had never seen this GPO before.
I would be very gratefull for any tips that can help me with this problem.
By the way, compliments for a great forum. It has helped me a great deal in the past with Adobe distribution.

I'm not sure if this answers your question but with what I made out of it - why not just associate a group to the package. Then you can put users in the group to install and take which user out to uninstall. That's how I do it anyway.

That is worth some consideration. That would mean distributing per user though.
Can you tell me how I can assosiate a group to the package?
Can I assosiate a group of machines to the package and distribute per machine?
Thanks,
