Scrub all Office installations

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Just want to check here before we invent the wheel all over again :)

Dose anyone has a script currently been used in CW Automate to compleately uninstall and scrub all Office insallations from a PC?

What we want this script to do is:

1. Scrub preinstalled office installation on brand new computers.

2. Scrub old Office installations when we move customers from old OEM office installations to Office365.

 

When we help our customers buying new computers they are often prepered with different Office installations from factory. When we install them for the customer we want a quick and easy way to scrub all the office installations from the PC.

Also when we take on a new customer that have used old Office installations we want the transistion to Office 365 to be quick and as much as possible been done "behind the scenes".

 

Anyone have a soultion for this and feel to share? :)

Thanks!

Great! Thanks.

Will take a look at this. Are you using this right now?

Will this also remove preinstalled Office365 installations?

We often see when we buy new computers for clients there are 3-4 preinstalled Office365 installations already installed on the PC with different languages.

Great if this will wipe these installations as well so we can install one singel installations with that flavor of Office 365 the customer is using.

Yes we use it now. But the O365 ProPlus installer (click to run) now also has an option to remove previous installs (haven't tested that). From my limited testing, when doing a click to run install, it replaces any existing click to run versions of office automatically. So we don't specifically doing any uninstalling for those proactively. But the 'windows store app' stuff is still there. I've never tried to script removing that built-in stuff.
