    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?

    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

    %WINDIR%\PDQDeployRunner\1\exec\config.xml

    to

    %WINDIR%\AdminArsenal\PDQDeployRunner\service-1\exec\config.xml

    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" />
    </Configuration>

    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.
