Uninstall office 2007 pro plus - Error code 1

followed the below guide:

Place the config.xml in a network share that everyone has access to, but on deploying I get Error code 1:


C:\Windows\AdminArsenal\PDQDeployRunner\service-1\exec>"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12\Office Setup Control\setup.exe" /uninstall PROPLUS / dll OSETUP.DLL /config C:\Windows\AdminArsenal\PDQDeployRunner\service-1\exec\config.xml
The system cannot find the path specified.

  • What was the command line that you provided? If the config.xml file is on a file share then that path has to be placed after the /config parameter. In other words, don't use %CD% if the file somewhere else.

  • HI, yes I was using %CD%.. but it also fails if I use the network share as well:


    "%CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12\Office Setup Control\setup.exe" /uninstall PROPLUS / dll OSETUP.DLL /config \\bschamfs01\office2013\office2007\config.xml


    I have attached the config.xml for reference.

  • I can't duplicate. I do notice that you have a space between the / and dll. Remove that space and try again.

  • Sorry this was resolved by your support guys, there was an the documentation on the below link was missing the LER in the text, in the video it was correct but I simply copied/pasted the text in the link


    The below 

    "%CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12\Office Setup Controller\setup.exe" /uninstall PROPLUS / dll OSETUP.DLL /config %CD%\config.xml


  • Thanks for the heads up. I have fixed the blog post. Sorry for the confusion.

  • No problem, sorry for not updating this thread as well.
