Software Deployment Question
What files are needed, exactly, from the Office 2010 CD directory to do the silentuninstall.xml; remote uninstall of Office 2010 Pro?
Hi. My method is based on Microsoft Technet to silently uninstall Microsoft Office:
"\\server\share\...\setup.exe /uninstall ProPlus /config \\server\share\...\ProPlus.WW\SilentUninstallConfig.xml"
And it works great. However, that's not what our organization wants...no batch file deployed to run and call on other servers for files. What 'we' want is to deploy all files required, run a command line within to uninstall. (Don't ask me why)
So, basically, it is set this way:
A "Task" is created where all contents of the "Office 2010 CD" are copied to a temp directory. Then in the command line, execute "setup.exe /uninstall ProPlus /Config \ProPlus.WW\SilentUninstall.xml". Once the Task is complete, all files are removed from temp directory.
Sure, it works. But that's a lot of files and 800 MB worth of data; process takes too long. My guess is we do not require the entire CD, right? So anyone know exactly what specific files/directories are needed from the Office CD to do what the "...SilentUninstallConfig.xml" calls for? I tried only the ProPlus.WW folder...it failed.
