Use FixIt 50450 to uninstall Office 2010 silently RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We need to install Office 2013 Pro Plus and would like to uninstall Office 2010 Pro Plus first. The problem is we have about 7 or 8 different versions of Office suite (RTM, SP1, SP2, some 2007 also) installed using different media that makes it even harder to create one single package to uninstall all previous versions of Office.

    I've found FixIt 50540 and it works great if I just run the msi. Looking at the log file, it first searches what is present and then the wizard asks to click Next to continue the uninstall. Obviously this method is not working in an enterprise environment and unlike other FixIt tools, this one can be run silently but it does nothing...

    Comparing full install and a silent one, the full one takes about 20 min to run while the silent one takes couple of minutes. Log file is also different.

    So my question is, how can I silently use FixIt 50540 to uninstall Office 2010? If needed, I can provide the log file files.

    Thank you!
