Well, got the package setup to install Office 2013 64 bit but with office 2010 32 bit on some machines I will need to find a way to uninstall Office 2010 32 bit before Office 2013 can be installed. Does anyone have a link or a script to uninstall Office 2010 32 bit, force a PC restart and than install Office 2013 64 bit?? Any documents, articles or links would be great.

I would do it in two steps:

1. run uninstall on the systems with installed Office 2010.

"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE14\Office Setup Controller\setup.exe" /uninstall PROPLUSR /dll OSETUP.DLL (as suggested from KACE from the software inventory)

2. install Office 2013 as packaged version as usual

  • Thanks but that does not work. We have three different version of 2010 (14.0.6029.1000, 14.0.4763.1000 & 14.0.7015.1000 but none will execute the uninstall with the above command. I also created a uninstall script using the msiexec + uninstall string and nothing happens.
  • That would be fine but when you set a silent unistall script with the above parameters nothing happens. You see the msiexec. exe executing and the setup bootstrp execute but office remains. Even if it was removed i still couldnt install Office2013 because Office 2010 Componenets remain

Is there a reason why you need Office x64?

Its recommended that you use x32 office, plus all your plugin will work as well. The only reason for going x64 is for Excel to handle the data better.

  • I just came on board and that is what the company purchased. Plus most of the PC's are 64 bit.
  • Ah fair cop.
