I’ve made a script that uninstalls Office 2010 with some add-ins and installs Office 365 afterwards.
Everything seems to be working but I’ve experienced problems with uninstalling two add-ins for Office 2010.
When checking the logfile I get this errormessage.
[Installation] uninstall string  does not match “msiexec”, so removal will not proceed.
I’ve checked my spelling and even copied the name from the Displayname Key in HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\MSI Product Code.
What am I doing wrong? is there a limit on namelength for the program? It’s 75 characters long.
If the problem is too long programname, can I use some sort of wildcard option to tell the script to uninstall every add-in with a certain name?
