    Script to uninstall Outlook 2003.

    Hey guys,

    Just wondering if anyone has a script to uninstall outlook 2003? unfortunately, it was installed via a .exe not MSI, so msiexec does not seem to work.
    I only want to uninstall outlook 2003, not the whole office suite.

    Just would need a script to put as a logon script!.

    Regards,

    ITman93

    You should do it a as a start-up script so it needs the right permissions.

    Office is a pain for this. I needed to do it for Office 2007. It was a case of uninstalling all of office and reinstalling without outlook.

    I found this --> would like to silently uninstall outlook 2003,install outlook 2010 on a parallel run office 2003+2010

    The link you found seems a bit better though.

    The bit I am referring to on the link I posted above is this :

    unfortunately doing the MSP to add outlook2010 to the office installation and specifying to remove outlook2003 didn't do the trick
    i have to uninstall it before like this + make a shortcut mannualy because the old shortcuts aren't removed !!!!
    Code:
    Set MSIPATH=%~dp0
    msiexec /i {90110409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9} REMOVE=OUTLOOKFiles /qb
    msiexec /p "%MSIPATH%SETUP_ONLY_OUTLOOK.MSP"
    xcopy /Y "%MSIPATH%Microsoft Outlook 2010.lnk" "C:\Users\Public\Desktop"
    del /F /Q /S "C:\Users\Public\Desktop\Microsoft Office Outlook 2003.lnk"

    Re:uninstall Outlook 2003

    Here it is to note that Outlook comes as a feature and essential part of Office suite. However, if you are using Windows vista there is one simple method to remove it. Go to control panel - > Programs and features -> Microsoft Office -> Right click on it and then click on 'Change' to modify the installation. Now when the setup will run click on Add or Remove features and uncheck the Outlook feature to uninstall it. Click Next. This will uninstall the Outlook and rest components of Office suite will remain as it is.

    Regards

    I've just run the office scrub script and it seems to do a decent job. You can specify what you want to remove as a parameter so in this case just call the script:

    cscript offscrub03.vbs OUTLOOK

    like so and it should be sweet. I created a gpo and made a batch file to copy the vbs to local machine and run.
