Silent uninstall of Office 2010 Pro Plus

I'm trying to do a silent uninsall of Office 2010 Pro Plus using the command
Msiexec.exe /qn /X{registry string} but it doesn't uninstall the application.

I also tried the command without the /qn option with the user interaction - but it didn't work either.
Any solution to this?

Msiexec.exe does not work the same way with Office 2010 as it was in 2007.
