Questions about MSI scripting

Questions about MSI scripting

Questions about MSI scripting

Good Morning,

I have been asked to create a batch file that will uninstall MS Outlook 2013 and later, reinstall it - this, after removing GroupWise from our users' PC's.

In which forum would my questions and code be more appropriately posted?

Thanks in advance,


RE: Questions about MSI scripting

That's a tough one... I would say one of the Windows forums, it is an administrative task so one of the server forums would likely get you somewhere. Superuser <dot> com might be a good way to go too.

With business clients like mine, you'd be better off herding cats.

Thank you @lameid, and @philhege!
