Hello folks,

I am currently working on deploying OneDrive for Business. I have the silent install package ready to be deployed silently, however am not able to find a way to remove it silently. Any help would really be appreciated.

    Did you looked into Uninstall string .. It would be more helpful to other if you elaborate bit on the findings , stuff you performed ? - rock_star 5 years ago
    • Sorry for late response. We are using the officedeploymenttool to deploy the setup.exe along with the configuration file. I tried using the configuration file as well to remove it silently but never worked. - shrestha.rajiv.k 5 years ago
  • Also wondering if this is being deployed through the Office suite or a standalone installer? - GAKIS 5 years ago

You can also try with configuration file

Setup.exe /configure "Uninstall.xml"
