Scripting Question


Script to Modify Office 2007 Pro install - uninstall everything but Access

03/27/2017 1220 views
I am looking for script to uninstall all of Office 2007 Pro except Access.  So far, I have "setup.exe /modify", but can't find anything on the rest of the syntax.  I do have working script that uninstalls all Office 2007 Pro, but, for this one office, we need to keep Access 2007 for a while.  Thanks for any help you can give!

use "setup.exe /admin" to open the customization tool which will generate a MSP file. More details: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/odsupport/2009/06/10/office-2007-customized-install-walkthrough/

Once it is installed Do NOT use an MSP. things can get a bit wooly.

User the setup.exe /modify ProPlus /config

use an XML file and set the features you want to remove as absent..

I normally use this to INSTALL Access..

 <OptionState Id="ACCESSFiles" State="local" Children="force" />

you would need to find the other features like:

"EXCELFiles"
"WORDFiles"


to :
"WORDFiles" State="absent"

Hope that helps
Also, use the existing XML files, but take copies and give them a name suitable to your little action here.

FYI - Instead of uninstalling Office 2007 except Access using the Office 2007 setup program, I did it through the Office 2013 install.  Thanks for all your help!
