I have installed MS Project Standard 2007 using MSP and when i try to uninstall it using the following commands i get error and my uninstall fails.

MsiExec.exe /X{90120000-003A-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE} /qn (I get 1603 error)

"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12\Office Setup Controller\setup.exe" /uninstall PRJSTD /dll OSETUP.DLL ( This doesnt work)

Also tried http://www.altirigos.com/vbulletin/scripting-tools-docs/9025-scripting-silent-uninstall-ms-project-2007-a.html

Code
Configuration Product="PrjStd">
<Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />

<Logging Type="standard" Path="C:\SctLogs" Template="Microsoft Office Project Professional Setup(*).log" /> -->

<Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="NEVER" />

Command
\\yourserver\Microsoft Office 2007\SETUP.EXE /uninstall PrjPro /config Uninstall_CONFIG.XML
</Configuration>

Is there any other way of automating the uninstall?

This entry\\yourserver\Microsoft Office 2007\SETUP.EXE /uninstall PrjPro /config Uninstall_CONFIG.XML
is spurious. Typically, you'd use it to kick off some other executable as part of your install/uninstall.

log your uninstall.

MsiExec.exe /X{90120000-003A-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE} /qn /l*v "C:\temp\project_uninstall.log"

You want to uninstall Project STD or Pro ?

Your uninstallation command (/uninstall PrjPro) is different than your .xml (<Configuration Product="PrjStd">)

I think you are missing the value "OptionState" in your .xml

Here a example for removing Visio 2007 :

<Configuration Product="VisStd">
<Display Level="Basic" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />
<Logging Type="verbose" Path="%Windir%\Temp" Template="VisioStd_2007_SP2_ML_Microsoft_remove.log" />
<Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="NEVER" />
<OptionState Id="VISIOFiles" State="absent" Children="force" />
</Configuration>


You should find the OptionState Id value in your PrjSTDWW.msi in the Feature Table (My guess is PRJFiles or PROJECTFiles).

Create another simple msp........in that msp disable project standard or what ever feature you want to remove.....or in this case if u want to remove whole package then, disable all the features, and save that msp.....then just doubleclick on it. it will uninstall all the things

You can't use a .msp to uninstall features. With all office 2007 product, .msp are used for initiate installation only.

I have used that, and it works. if u just doubleclick on this msp, the features which are disabled in this msp, will get removed. Check it practically :)
