Cant Uninstall corrupt version of Office

Hi there,

Somehow we have ended up having two versions of office (2007 & 2010) on our windows 2012 server operating system, I need to uninstall the 2010 version but just cant do it through the normal means.. can anyone suggest a way of doing this...?

You can see here several ways of uninstall office ->Remove Office

Probably you will use the manual way.

Please use Microsoft FixIt to uninstall Office 2010.

or application version.. remember there are two versions currently on there, office 2007 and office 2010 and the confusing factor is that the 2010 is a 64 bit version.....

Did you give it a try with the manual solution that I pointed?

yes all were uninstalled accept for the main office 2010 installer file, all the others uninstalled fine except this one, I guess this is where the problem lies..... ??

I´m a bit confuse now.

Do you uninstall the other offices through the manual process, and it worked well except the office 2010?
try reinstalling office 2010 - then uninstall it
or use revo uninstaller, when it's installed :
