I'm really having troubles using your hardware to uninstall office 2010 and install office 2016.


Can you please show me how to run a script that I can monitor the success rate for machines that uninstalls office 2010.  Then I want to run a modified setup.exe with an attached .msp file from the kbox to each machine.  Please?

then, create a smart label for all devices without office 2010 and without office 2016
target your office 2016 installation to this label

Office 2016 install should but does not remove old version has it suppose to.   Having said that, I worked at this most issue last year.  This is what I worked out, I wanted this to be uninstall and then install.  Not two passes.
 
A Batch file that looks like this: 
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE14\Office Setup Controller\setup.exe" /uninstall PROPLUS /config "C:\ProgramData\Quest\KACE\downloads\37079\SilentUninstall.xml" /dll OSETUP.DLL
setup.exe /adminfile InstallOffice2016.MSP

This first line uninstall Office 2010 and the second install Office 2016,  All in one package.  Please note the manually assigned path for the XML file. You will have run the install once to find the download folder.  (use a commented out batch file to start, don't include the Office 2016 install, unless you want to wait for a 1.6gb office install to download).

and a XML file (for the Silent uninstall of Office 2010): 

<Configuration Product="ProPlus">
 <Display Level="basic" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" NoCancel="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />
 <Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="NEVER" />
</Configuration>

This is just how I did it and I go with what works.

Hi,
I would recommend something along these lines, as it can reliably remover *any* previous office version. I have had problems in the past (for example with Outlook) if I did not explicitly remove any previous versions.

Cheers
