Need help removing Outlook 2007 via .xml file

Hello everyone,

After discovering how to add Outlook 2007 PROFESSIONAL to an existing installation of Office, I'm now challenged with the task of how to remove it via a config.xml file. I need to make a short .bat file so it can be used for deployment.

Here is what I have so far:

1. The confg file I named uninstall_outlook.xml looks like this:

<Configuration Product="ProPlus">
<Display Level="Basic" CompletionNotice="No" SuppressModal="Yes" NoCancel="Yes"/>
<Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="NEVER"/>

2. The command line to uninstall that I have looks like this:

\\server\share\office2007\setup.exe /uninstall /config \\server\share\office2007\ProPlus.WW\uninstall_outlook.xml

Nothing happens. I check the local Office 2007 folder and outlook.exe and their components are still present. I have admin rights on the machine.

Any suggestions? I was thinking that something might have to be changed in the .xml file such as the <configuration product> tag...


I was reading some posts and someone mentioned that you have to specify what you want to install... For example:

\\server\share\office2007\setup.exe /uninstall OUTLOOK /config \\server\share\office2007\ProPlus.WW\uninstall_outlook.xml

That didn't work for me.

What else didn't I try?

Thank you
