  • Cannot Uninstall Office 2007

    Attempting to uninstall Office 2k7 and get the error: "the installation source for this product is not available" I tired to uninstall it manually with this KB Article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928218 but i get the same message when i am at the "uninstall" phase. I tried inserting the CD and uninstalling through the installer but still does not work. Don't know where to go from this point, please help.

    Thanks.

    Let's get clear what it is you're actually trying to uninstall... there is no such product as Windows 2007. Do you mean Office 2007? Exchange 2007?

      Office 2007 it seems, as that is what his link is about, and this is the Office 2007 forum I've updated the thread title to clarify this.

          OK, so on which OS is it installed? Have you tried doing it from (a) the same user who first installed it and (b) the same CD or network drive from which it was originally installed?

            urk! I never look at what forum I'm in - a by-product of using the "New Posts" link at top left!

              It is Windows XP Pro. And yes I have attempted as the user that installed it in the first place. And the same CD it was originally installed from.

                Have you tried reinstalling Office 2007 (reboot) and then use the Add Remove applet?

                2 2 was 1 2.
