  • Removing office 2010 and installing Office 2013

    Dear All,

    Presently I have a start up script applied to Windows 7 Desktop and Laptop, to install Office 2010 setup from a shared folder located on server Domain Controller itself. When a new computer is joined to domain script run to install office 2010 on computer.

    Now we have office 2013 and I am looking for appropriate method to un-install office 2010 and install 2013 on computers, Is this possible to achieve without making problems to users ? because from licensing point of view we can not keep two office copies installed on a PC or laptop, it should be one so 2010 has to be removed.

    Please share your knowledge/experience for this, it is very difficult to visit every one to perform above task.

    Waiting for quick response.

    Regards,
    Wajeeh

    IIRC there is an option when installing any version of office to retain or remove previous versions. If this is also so in Office 2013 you can script it.

    IMHO having two copies of Office for a brief period while upgrading is not breaking the spirit of the licensing, although M$ may take a different view

      There is an option when you create your MSP file to remove previous versions of office.
