Uninstall Office 2010, then Install Office 2016
I'm really having troubles using your hardware to uninstall office 2010 and install office 2016.
Can you please show me how to run a script that I can monitor the success rate for machines that uninstalls office 2010. Then I want to run a modified setup.exe with an attached .msp file from the kbox to each machine. Please?

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE14\Office Setup Controller\setup.exe" /uninstall PROPLUS /config "C:\ProgramData\Quest\KACE\downloads\37079\SilentUninstall.xml" /dll OSETUP.DLL
setup.exe /adminfile InstallOffice2016.MSP
This first line uninstall Office 2010 and the second install Office 2016, All in one package. Please note the manually assigned path for the XML file. You will have run the install once to find the download folder. (use a commented out batch file to start, don't include the Office 2016 install, unless you want to wait for a 1.6gb office install to download).
and a XML file (for the Silent uninstall of Office 2010):
<Display Level="basic" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" NoCancel="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />
<Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="NEVER" />
This is just how I did it and I go with what works.
