Uninstalls are definitely more efficient using the Scripting module, but this can only be done if the application is listed in Add/Remove Programs. If it isn't, you'll have to use a script dependency or a Deployment set to uninstall the application.

This challenge is that, Office Suit does not allow the silent uninstall without the configuration file “configoffice.xml’ in our case , this is the alternate method if you don’t have or you don’t want to upload the whole Package for un installation.
