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.
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
