Try using the "Configuration Policies" it partially worked for us.

Head to Scripts > Configuration Policies > Uninstaller, set a name for the policy and there you choose the software (make sure it's the correct one) it will automatically fill most of the fields save it and run it on a few test machines before running it in production.

If it didn't work you can try the scripts in here https://www.pdq.com/blog/silently-uninstall-office-2010/ they're for another software but the script should be the same.

Hi, 

Yes, I'm talking about Windows.

I will try out the uninstaller, how about MS office 2019? As all my client machines are offline, we are using KMS server, can I know how do I create a silently installation?


Thank you.

Just create an XML file to configure and install office (include the key there). Check out this link: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/office2019/deploy

Put the XML file in the same folder as the office installer, zip it and then go to "Distribution" and create a new "Managed Installation", under the inventory section (directly under the name) select the software form the software catalog and under "Associated File" upload the zip file, tick the "Delete downloaded files" option. Under "Installation Options" select "Override default installation" and use your xml file by typing setup.exe /configure YourXMLfile.xml , I would suggest reducing the "Maximum Attempts" to 1

(if the software is not in the software catalog then go to "Inventory" > "Software" create a new software and upload the zip file there)

This is the XML file I use in my environment

<Configuration>
  <Add OfficeClientEdition="64" Channel="PerpetualVL2019">
   <Product ID="ProPlus2019Volume"  PIDKEY="#####-#####-#####-#####-#####" >
      <Language ID="en-us" />
     </Product>   
  </Add>
  <RemoveMSI All="True" />
 <Display Level="None" AcceptEULA="TRUE" />
 <Property Name="AUTOACTIVATE" Value="1" />
</Configuration>


Your clients have to be connected to KACE for the above method to work (the XML file will work offline, you can just create a .bat script to run the command setup.exe /configure YourXMLfile.xml but then  you have to run it manually on each device or give it to the user to run it (who needs to have admin right) but I wouldn't do that if I were you especially that the XML file contains your product key)

Hey, you can do it by using very simple methods. you can go on application administration and choose the office and install it. After that, you can download office 2019 from the official website and launch it on your system.

  • Hi Chris,
    Sorry, all my client are in the secured network (close network), can you explain what do you mean by "go on application administration and choose the office and install it".

I face the same problem a few days ago. Then, I applied this method. Where our all app is installed firstly you need to go app management setting and then uninstall the full set of Office 365. After installation, you can easily install the new setup.
