Office 365ProPlus deploy
We would like to deploy Office365ProPlus on our sytems. Some as Office 2013 or2016.
Is there a script to uninstall office and install 365?
is it better to install in in my gold image or run as a post-install task?
When setting up the o365 xml file, you have the option to set it to remove all previous versions of office. I find that works better than a separate uninstall task done first. If you haven't taken a look, yet, you can find the xml generator at https://config.office.com/ Look for the generator at the bottom left of that page.
We install it as a post-install task and our configuration is set to install the latest version, this way we don't have to worry about installing updates. We also don't use an image, we have moved to scripted installs.
For machines that are in place, we use a similar script that uninstalls previous versions first, and then installs ProPlus.
If you need a uninstall Office nuker, you can use this
Its coded by MS and does a great job of removing all bits of Office.
