Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

I didn't try   http://www.revouninstaller.com/
   because on the website it says

only works with
Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows Vista and Windows 7
Revo Uninstaller Pro has full native support of 64bit operating systems!

and I have it installed on window server 2008

any other  idea's to remove office 2000 from win server 2008?

BTW-- the error message says

Some default settings in Microsoft Office 2000 setup do not work properly on a Windows Terminal Server.  To install Office on Terminal Server, you must use the instructions and tools available in your Office 2000 Resource Kit or a http://www.microsoft.com/Office/ORK/.

basically I never follow these rules when installing Office 2000

So is there a way to unistall it now or fix that error message?

Revo will start the programs default uninstaller<<<which is failing for you.....then it will scan the registry and files and folders and allow you to delete. It is very thorough and I have used it many times successfully.
