SCCM Office 2010 Deployment did not remove Office 2007 from add/remove programs



Just wondering if someone can help.

I deployed a customised version of office 2010 pro plus using SCCM 2012. The Office package was meant to upgrade the users existing Office 2007 Pro Plus Suite. 

From the users perspective everything is fine the usual applications have been replaced on their desktop with the 2010 versions but behind the scenes its still there.

If I check the Hardware Resource Explorer in SCCM both Office Pro Plus 2007 and 2010 are there. If I run a report from SCCM I get the same numbers for both installations.

This troubles me as I have an enterprise license and must report back to Microsoft on the licensing status. at the minute it looks like I'm using 600 office 2010 licenses and 600 office 2007 licenses.

Any removal help or experience with this would be greatly appreciated.

  • Why don't you run an uninstall on Office Pro Plus 2007 and then roll out your 2010 afterwards? We don't rely on Microsoft to remove previous MS Office so we chain it in the package to remove prior to the installs of the new version. - dj_xest 9 years ago
