Creating only Uninstall Package for O365 Proplus using SCCM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Team,

             I have created a SCCM deployment package for O365 Proplus with both xml for Install and Uninstall,

          When I made the deployment as Available both Install and Uninstall is working fine, but when choosing Required the Package is getting installed but uninstall option is Grayed out.

          I thought of creating a new package for Unistall xml alone,with below code which is working fine locally, but not working when I deployed thro SCCM. Kindly help.

    Uninstall.xml:

    <Configuration> 
       <Remove SorucePath="" officeclientedition="32"> 
        <Product ID="O365ProPlusRetail" > 
           <Language ID=”en-us” />
        </Product> 
       </Remove> 
       <Display Level="None" AcceptEULA="TRUE">

    </Configuration>

  • ...but when choosing Required the Package is getting installed but uninstall option is Grayed out.

    Yes - because that's what Required does.
    Required = the device *MUST* have this application deployed.
    To allow an uninstall, would imply that it is optional/discretionary...

    Seems to be a typo ?

  • Don is correct on the "required" aspect.  If you need to make a separate removal package (okay, "Application"), just make a script wrapper and name it "Office365 ProPlus Removal" and make it required.  Sort of a double-negative, but it should work.
