We have "Office 2000 with Outlook 2003" installed on some machines. Now, we are required to install Office 2003 over it.
After installing Office 2003 package, the previous version of Outlook 2003 is not getting removed.
I want to remove the previous outlook version 2003 while retaining the Outlook seettings such as profiles info etc.
How to achieve this when trying to create a office 2003 package?

add some entries into the upgrade table to remove the current version you need to remove.

If your using Wise the upgrade "page" is likely to be the easiest for you.

Hello Sandeep,

You must use ORK to perform this task. There is a setting in ORK where you can mention to migrate user settings. Also, the OPS and the PRF will be migrated accordingly. You need to find the appropriate options in the ORK for 2003.

However, what i wish to ask is why do you want to remove Outlook 2003 if it is already installed on the computer? If you can clearly explain your business case, then maybe i can assist you more in this regard.

For the time being, understanding from whatever you have written, the best option for you is to go through ORK documentation and its usage for packaging 2003. Also, you can segregate the installation of office with outlook to increase managebility.

For any assistance, please feel free to let me know.

With Best Regards,
Tushar Singh.

I believe ORK does not have the ability to remove the same version. I expect as I mentioned before you will need to author the upgrade table directly.
