Uninstall office 2016

Hi,  I had tried to uninstall office 2016 using uninstaller wizard, managed install, script install. When I run it the process quicked ok but always I'm getting pop up to accept yes to continue the uninstallation. I have tried several silent command parameters(/qn, /s, /quiet....) with no success. Please any suggestion will be appreciated. Thanks!!

Use this, its more reliable and removes left over bits that can interference with the install of the replacement Office version.


  • Agreed, we use this in our environment with 14000+ computers with great success - ArneJohansen 1 year ago
    • Any tips on using this in Kace?

      I'm struggling to create a Script to uninstall Office 2016. I have created the script, with the necessary GitHub files as a dependency, I can 'launch a program' and run the powershell script 'Remove-PreviousOfficeInstalls.ps1' successfully.
      However to uninstall Office 2016 I need to include the parameter '-Remove2016Installs $true' and that's were I'm stuck.

      In the 'launch a program' - 'Parameters' field I've tried:
      -executionpolicy remotesigned -command " & '$(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)\Remove-PreviousOfficeInstalls.ps1' '-Remove2016Installs $true' "
      and various other similar commands but can't get it to run successfully - Mark_Robinson 9 months ago
