Scripting Question

How do I uninstall Office 2011

05/23/2016 1003 views
I recently got a script to uninstall Office 2011 on about 130 Macs.  I tested the script in terminal, on my test Mac, and it uninstalled Office 2011.  I uploaded the uninstall script for the managed install, the MI came back saying that it was successful.  I checked my test computer and Office 2011 is still in the applications folder.  I opened Word 2011 and its still working.  Anyone have any ideas why this happened?  Thanks!

How is your managed install (or uninstall in this case) configured? I am removing 2011 as part of our 2016 installation. I wrote a blog post about it here: http://www.itninja.com/blog/view/creating-an-office-2016-package-for-mac-deployment
