Hi All,

I need to run a silent uninstall of office 2010 Pro plus on several machines without user invention/interference. Would like to do this via K1000. I'm new to the software so not 100% sure if this can be accomplished using a modified configuration policy script or if i'm looking at this the wrong way.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

We do it like this :

"%CommonProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE14\Office Setup Controller\setup.exe" /uninstall PROPLUS /config "%~dp0SilentUninstall.xml" /dll OSETUP.DLL
"%commonprogramfiles%\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE14\Office Setup Controller\setup.exe" /uninstall PROPLUS /config "%~dp0SilentUninstall.xml" /dll OSETUP.DLL

And the content of SilentUninstall.xml is :

<Configuration Product="ProPlus">
   <Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />
   <Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="NEVER" />

  • I setup a simple script with the contents of your xml and worked out nicely!
  • cannot find the specified config.xml file.C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\office setup controller\uninstall.xml

    even after starting it in services

You need to follow this guide, https://modalyitblog.wordpress.com/2015/02/17/scripting-your-office-2010-removal-office-365-click-to-run-migration/  But be sure to pay attention to the section on 32/64 bit versions of cscript.exe  I have used this on several machines running both 32 and 64 bit versions of office on Windows 7 PCs and it worked perfectly.  Be sure to include a reboot after it removes Office.  Remember to call out Power shell like powershell.exe -nologo -executionpolicy bypass -WindowStyle hidden -noprofile -file "nameofyourscript.ps1"

"%~dp0\setup.exe" /config "%~dp0\Uninstall.xml"/Uninstall ProPlus



- <ConfigurationProduct="ProPlus">

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

  <Logging Type="standard" Path="%temp%" Template="Microsoft OfficeProfessional Plus Setup(*).txt" />

  <Setting Id="Reboot" Value="Never" />
