Uninstall Microsoft Office 2010 - Powershell

I'm using the PDQ Offered Office 2010 uninstall.  Works fantastic on most, however I'm seeing a few erroring out with "Package returned error code -65536" Inside the output log it says "Windows PowerShell terminated with the following error:  The type initializer for'System.Management.Automation.Tracing.PSEtwLog' threw an exception.

Any ideas?

  • I've had this happen before, Powershell basically doesn't start. What fixed it for me was installing .Net 4.5 on that machine.

  • You are right! I checked and those PCs only have .NET 4.  I've now added .NET 4.6.2 to run before running the uninstall!
