Hi

Does anyone know the best way to un-install Outlook 2000 and install Outlook 2003? Would an MST file be used in this scenario?

Thanks

If the Outlook 2000 installation was originally part of an Office 2000 deployment and you wish to keep the rest of Office 2000, you could always run the following command :

msiexec /i <Enter ProductCode GUID for Office 2000 Here> REMOVE=OUTLOOKFiles /qb

prior to installing Outlook 2003. Not tested this personally, but I have seen a similar approach used to remove Access from an Office deployment.

Thanks. I did that and it un-installed the entire Office 2000. Is there any other commands I'm missing? Do you also know of any good info for a newb like me? [;)]

Whoops ! Must have been an off day when I wrote my earlier reply, the command line should have read :

msiexec /i <Enter ProductCode GUID for Office 2000 Here> REMOVE=OUTLOOKFiles /qb

(Note the use of REMOVE rather than REMOVELOCAL)

Also, I'd suggest adding the /qb switch (or similar) to do the job silently.

I have edited my original reply so future readers are not misled and my apologies to you for the error.

For sources of information that may help with the configuration and deployment of Outlook 2003, you could look up the Office 2003 Resource Kit, specifically the Custom Installation Wizard page.
