Hello,

I am looking at click-to-run and it doesn't uninstall the previous version of office so I need to ask the easiest way to remove it from 100-150 machines when we got to Office 2013/365.  Can it be done via GPO?

Excellent article, thanks!
To confirm:
1. I have a group policy under User Configuration >Pref > Windows Settings > Files that puts the .bat and .vbs in windir on the user machine
2. Scheduled Task that runs the .bat on lock
3. email O551c3_Out.txt to user (this is blank)?

One question as I try this will it remove Project and Visio as well?

Thanks!

I have not tested the script.
Hopefully It may uninstall project and visio as well, please test

"3. email O551c3_Out.txt to user (this is blank)?" I think you don't require this file.
