Uninstall Skype for Business RRS feed

  • Question

  • O365 Proplus has been deployed using XML File to approx 800 clients:

    <Configuration>
        <Add OfficeClientEdition="32" Channel="Monthly">
            <Product ID="O365ProPlusRetail">
                <Language ID="en-us"/>
                <ExcludeApp ID="Groove"/>
            </Product>
        </Add>
    </Configuration>

    As Teams is being deployed there is a requirement to remove Skype for Business. Adding<ExcludeApp ID="Lync"/> will remove from new builds.  What is the ideal method to remove SkypeForBusiness?

  • Hi Ash422,

    You can try to run this XML to remove Skype For Business:

    <Configuration> 
      <Remove>
       <Product ID="SkypeforBusinessRetail" >
        <Language ID="en-us" />
       </Product>
      </Remove>
     <Display Level="None" />
     </Configuration>

    For different Skype for Business versions there are different Product IDs:

    Product Version of the Office Deployment Tool Product ID
    Skype for Business Basic 2015 Office 2013 Deployment Tool for Click-to-Run LyncEntryRetail
    Skype for Business 2015 Office 2013 Deployment Tool for Click-to-Run LyncRetail
    Skype for Business Basic 2016 Office Deployment Tool SkypeforBusinessEntryRetail
    Skype for Business 2019 Office Deployment Tool SkypeforBusinessRetail
    Skype for Business 2019 (volume licensed) Office Deployment Tool SkypeforBusiness2019Volume
    Skype for Business Basic 2019 Office Deployment Tool SkypeforBusiness2019Retail
