How to uninstall KB4011626 and other Office updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • I thought I would post my findings here on how to uninstall an Office update from Microsoft, in this case KB4011626 which was causing issues after it's release on Tuesday.

    I first tried using the below method but this doesn't works with office patches. If you do have windows patches you want to uninstall you can use this but it will need to run from either the system32 or syswow64 folders depending on your machines architecture (x86 or x64) unless you use a command line in a task sequence and tick

    wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:4011626 /quiet /norestart


    Instead we have to use the below command:

    msiexec /i {90160000-0011-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE} MSIPATCHREMOVE={9894BF35-19C1-4C89-A683-D40E94D08C77} /qn REBOOT=REALLYSUPPRESS

    You can put the command in a .bat or .cmd file and then use a package with a standard program  to deploy it out.

    Please note that the uninstall will correct the issue without rebooting (although a reboot will be pending) but you will need to close and reopen Outlook for the problem to be resolved so you may want to put in a TaskKill Outlook.exe line.

    You can find the product code and patch GUID by using your SCCM Console. Go to a device which has the patch installed, right-click and open Resource Explorer and click on 'Hardware' > 'Installed Applications' the  type in the KB in the search bar. Otherwise you can download the update, extract it and then right-click > Select Properties > Details tab > Origin > Revision number

    There is a second Outlook patch for KB4011626 installed which applies to OneNote MUI which doesn't need to be removed but if it does this is the command:

    msiexec /i {90160000-001A-0409-0000-0000000FF1CE} MSIPATCHREMOVE={9894BF35-19C1-4C89-A683-D40E94D08C77} /qn REBOOT=REALLYSUPPRESS

    This is a good article from microsoft to explain the process:
