Traditionally, Office Service Pack patches cannot be uninstalled without completely uninstalling the Office product. With the release of Office 2010, Service Packs can now be uninstalled from the Control Panel.
Microsoft has now released the Office 2010 SP uninstall tool for Microsoft Office 2010 client applications. This tool is included in a package called Office2010SPUninstall.exe, which is a self-extracting.exe file. The tool itself is a single file called OARPMan.exe. There is no installation for the OARPMan.exe tool.
Administrators or advanced users can use this command line tool to uninstall client patches included in Microsoft Office 2010 Service Packs.
This uninstall tool performs the following steps :
- Uninstall only client updates and not server updates.
- Uninstall Office 2010 Service Pack 2010 only.
