Silent Uninstall Visio 2007 Pro

I need to silently uninstall Visio Pro using a command line/batch file.

This page command line on this page does not work and needs correcting: http://www.appdeploy.com/packages/detail.asp?id=1072

YES I have searched the forum!!!

This thread contains the uninstall command line for Project but not Visio (http://www.appdeploy.com/messageboards/fb.asp?m=43682&key=silent%2Cuninstall%2Cvisio). I have checked the Uninstall reg key for the product id for Visio, but there are 9(!!!) different keys relating to Visio, and two of them are identical - I have tried the ID for the Visio Pro 2007 reg key but that doesnt work.

I have also checked this thread http://www.appdeploy.com/messageboards/fb.asp?m=43120&key=silent%2Cuninstall%2Cvisio

I have managed to use the setup /uninstall VISPRO command line, but it will not work silently so is therefore useless. This relates to (and also the microsoft kb pages) using a config.xml file to specify the silent commands, but i have used the syntax below and this has not had any effect at all.

<!-- <Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" /> -->

<!-- <Setting Id="Reboot" Value="Never" /> --> } either or depending on which MS KB page you beleive is accurate and which is b0ll0cks!![:@]
<Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="Never" /> } http://support.microsoft.com/kb/953366

PLEASE can some kind soul help me out here - i have tried for ages in vein to do what should be such a simple task. Why the hell have Microsoft made things so much more difficult and complicated with 2007?? Once again they have succeeded in minor improvements vs major frustrating changes.

Thanks for reading my rant!! [:(][8|]

Your xml is commented out with <!--

Could you post the whole config.xml file you are using?

This is how i silently uninstall Project. you'd need to find out the GUID for Visio and change the bits

"C:\MSOCache\All Users\{90120000-003B-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE}-C\setup.exe" /uninstall PrjPro /config pathtoyoursourcefilesgoeshere\2007\PrjPro.WW\Uninstall.xml"

uninstall.xml :

- <Configuration Product="PrjPro">
<Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />
<Logging Type="standard" Path="%temp%" Template="Uninstall Microsoft Office Project Professional 2007 Setup(*).txt" />
- <!-- <PIDKEY Value="BCDFGHJKMPQRTVWXY2346789B" />
- <!-- <USERNAME Value="Customer" />
- <!-- <COMPANYNAME Value="MyCompany" />
- <!-- <INSTALLLOCATION Value="%programfiles%\Microsoft Office" />
- <!-- <LIS CACHEACTION="CacheOnly" />
- <!-- <SOURCELIST Value="\\server1\share\Office12;\\server2\share\Office12" />
- <!-- <DistributionPoint Location="\\server\share\Office12" />
- <!-- <OptionState Id="OptionID" State="absent" Children="force" />
- <!-- <Setting Id="Reboot" Value="IfNeeded" />
- <!-- <Command Path="msiexec.exe" Args="/i \\server\share\my.msi" QuietArg="/q" ChainPosition="after" Execute="install" />

C:\MSOCacheIsn't it heart-warming to see Microsoft - yet again - ignoring its own guidelines about using folders in the root of the system drive. Excellent...
