the process for uninstallation for ALL Office, Visio and Project versions (2007 and 2010) would go like this:


create a new .xml file named: "SilentUninstallConfig.xml" and save it in your installation folder or where you want.


Populate the file with:


<Configuration Product="APPLICATIONID">

<Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />

<Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="Never" />



Replace the APPLICATIONID inside of " " with correct product id:

Visio 2007 Standard: "VisStd"

Visio 2007 Professional: "VisPro"

Visio 2010 Professional: "Visio" ! (important: in 2010 version there is no VisPro, only Visio product id!)

Project 2007 Standard: "PrjStd"

Project 2010 Professional: "PrjPro"

Office 2007 Standard: "Standard"

Office 2007 Enterprise: "Enterprise"

Office 2010 Professional: "ProPlus"






<Configuration Product="VisPro">

<Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />

<Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="Never" />



Second part is the command prompt order which goes like this:


CMD: setup.exe /uninstall APPLICATION ID /config SilentUninstallConfig.xml


AGAIN: replace the APPLICATION ID with the correct variable from examples shown above.


P.S. You can find the product id from Microsoft's products in the XYZ.WW folder:













Important: In my case it did not work with the option of running the program with the DP, what worked was "Download content from DP and run locally", that means that it has to download 500 mb+ of data to every machine. Not the very best idea but that is how it works.


Hints that will save you some nerves:

1. Be patient it can take up to 20-30min until you see the results on your test machine. SCCM 2007 is slow and somethimes buggy + it has to download xyz amount of data to the client.

2. In my case when you create a program it runs with both admin and user rights (user has to be local admin on the machine).

3. Ensure that there are not windows updates pending! very important! Advertisement will fail until client is free from windows updates.

4. Folder in Windows\SysWOW64\CCM\Cache is your friend, you can see there when the package is being downloaded. If for any reason package is already there but no results you have to delete that package otherwise advertisement will not download again!


Tttt that's all folks! Open to suggestions how to make the process more efficient.
