The information in BP for uninstalling programs via a registry script was helpful.  However I would like to uninstall a program within Microsoft Office.  I could find the "uninstall key" for Office itself but not the various component programs ( eg, MS Publisher or MS Access).  These sub programs can be uninstalled manually so I am presuming they can also be uninstalled via a registry script.

 

Thanks.

 

ps. Nice to be in this forum - looks interesting.

Please...post a link to the script you mentioned.  I've not seen such and would like to see exactly what the script is for and who put it forth.

 

I've always uninstalled MS Office components via the Windows mechanism for removing/uninstalling programs.

Cracked it while you boys in the Lone Star State were catching up on your beauty sleep !

 

My version of Office is 32 bit (64 bit machine) so all the uninstall strings are in ;"HKLM\Software\WOW6432node\Windows\Current Version\Run.

 

So now I can create a batch file to run the Command Line and execute the uninstalls.
