Hi, I've been using PDQ Deploy to push out Office 2016 throughout our organisation. I found that the standard MS install process wouldn't uninstall office 2010 as part of the upgrade, so eventually linked together a couple of packages. One uninstalled 2010 and the other installed 2016.
What I didn't check before I pushed this out was whether Office 2010 still remained in any way. Unfortunately when I use PDQ inventory to see which machines weren't available during the push, I can't differentiate between a 2010 machine and a 2016 (I',m using Collection LIbrary>Office Suites>Microsoft Office) - they all say they have both. Clearly, I have screwed up and each machine, despite having 2010 uninstalled, retains some setting that registers within PDQ inventory as stilll having Office 2010.
So can you help me extracate myself from the hole I have dug. Is there a report that I can run that will check for the existence of Word.exe perhaps or something a bit more sophisticated?
