I am packaging MS Office 2010 for installation and would like to script an uninstall pkg incase I need to remove it from any target pcs.

However, running setup.exe /uninstall {90140000-0011-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE} doesn't work.

Nor does msiexec.exe /x {90140000-0011-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE}

We use this command:

Setup.exe /uninstall ProPlus /config "YourSetupDir\Updates\SilentUninstall.xml"


<Configuration Product="ProPlus">
   <Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />
   <Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="NEVER" />

Have you tried the information at the following link ? 


The Microsoft "Fix-it" method outlined there might be one to consider.

  • Has anyone gotten the "Fix-it" method to work with SCCM to uninstall Office 2010 ProPlus and Standard?

For enterprise installs/uninstalls.. worth reading this link.. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc178956.aspx

I used the following command line as there is a local copy of the install files on our KMS licensed professional plus version. Using the standard command lines didnt work and we received the error message your installation is corrupt.

"%commonprogramfiles%\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE14\Office Setup Controller\setup.exe" /uninstall PROPLUS /config Config.xml /dll OSETUP.DLL

The config.xml file (Like the silent.xml as shown in an entry above by KARELV above is like the one I used) must be first copied into the folder "%commonprogramfiles%\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE14\Office Setup Controller.

Then the command line can be used.
