  • You're aware, of course, that Microsoft strongly recommends that you do not install Office 64-bit?

You're attemping to uninstall the 32bit versions with the 64bit installer - you need to run the uninstall commands for the 32bit Offices prior to attempting to install the 64bit version.


As VBScab notes, Microsoft recommend the 32bit version of Office - unless you're working with Excel files of over 2GB.
