  1. Hi Jitesh and Ankit,

    I just followed the link above that has been recommended by Ankit, but still i am unable to uninstall any KB from client computers.

    Please note that for example office 2016 products are available on client computer but still i am getting the above reported error message while uninstalling using MSIEXEC command line below. please suggest alternate method if any to uninstall KB from remote computers.

    Command line recommended from MS link above :
    msiexec /package {1EC7258A-3399-4D52-A649-EA278559BB76} /uninstall “C:Tempoart-x-none” /qb

  3. Have you tried the below link which provides the command line to uninstall office updates?

    You need to have product GUID and Patch GUID. how to get these values you can google and get it. I have used this command in past and it works fine.

    msiexec /package {PRODUCT GUID} /uninstall {PATCH GUID} /qb

  4. Yes Ankit!.. I see these are available while opening appwiz.cpl view installed updates.. Please suggest

  5. Have you restarted the system post uninstall?

  7. Are you seeing this update in open appwiz.cpl view installed updates section?
