Uninstaller for all Microsoft Visio installations

Is there a possibility to get an uninstaller for all Microsoft Visio installations or even uninstallers for various versions?

  • I'll look into it and see what i can do. What version specifically are you looking for an uninstall for in case i'm unable to make an uninstall for all versions?

  • Visio2010Premium, Visio2010Standard, Visio2010StandardWithSP1 and Visio2016Standard.

  • It looks like uninstalling Visio requires the initial setup.exe. Not sure if we can make a package for it if that's the case, however i did find an old post where Shane shows how to uninstall the 2007 version using a batch file so that you can use it with the free version of Deploy.

    Comments indicate you can still use the same process, however the path has changed from




    I need to get my hands on a copy of Visio so i can give this a try. I'll let you know once I do, but i think this should work for you.

  • What worked for me was to use the following

    "%CommonProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE14\Office Setup Controller\setup.exe" /uninstall Visio /config "\\Server\Share\config.xml"

    I used the following for my config.xml file 

    <Configuration Product="Visio">                                                      
    <Display Level="None" CompletionNotice="No" SuppressModal="Yes" AcceptEula="Yes" />
    <Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="Never" />


  • If I set a command step for this, how do I set Success codes?

  • Because it's a script you won't have full error handling. Your other option would be to copy all of the files into a package and run it that way. It's up to you. If you use a command step you'll just need to re-check each computer afterward or create a collection for Visio so you can tell if any didn't uninstall correctly.

  • Thanks all worked fine
