I'm trying to uninstall Office 2003 with a script deployed via the k1000 and have gotten as far as having a batch file containing the following;

MsiExec.exe /I{90110409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9} /qn /norestart

My issue is that it still brings up a pop up window asking me if I'm sure I want to uninstall the product.

Anyone have some input on how to get around this?

  • I've also done it like this

    MsiExec.exe /x {90110409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9} /qn /norestart
    • Well, I got it to work by changing it to MsiExec.exe /x {90110409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9} /qb

      The only thing it won't do is run without a user logged in even though I've got the box checked for it to do so.
  • It is likely that the Microsoft MSI checks for the existence of a valid profile before installing or uninstalling. A verbose log may reveal where this happens. However, depending on how the software was installed, if there are any advertised entry points remaining in the user profile (such as shortcuts or file associations), then if the user clicks on these application remnants, the application will start to repair.
