Product version: Live Meeting 2007 client and Conferencing Add-in for Microsoft Office Outlook

Uninstall Instructions

Use the following Msiexec command line to automatically uninstall the Live Meeting 2007 client and the Conferencing Add-in for Microsoft Office Outlook.

Msiexec /x install.msi /qb-

where install.msi is the path and name of the original MSI file used to install the product:

  • For the Live Meeting 2007 client, the MSI file is LMCONSOLE.MSI
  • For the Conferencing Add-in for Microsoft Office Outlook, the MSI file is LMADDINPACK.MSI

/qb- will provide a basic interface with the progress bar. Information about running the Msiexec command is available at Msiexec (command-line options) in the TechNet Library.

If the original file used was an EXE file rather than MSI, the MSI file can be extracted from the EXE by using the following command:

SETUP.EXE /C /T:<full path >

where SETUP.EXE is the name of the original EXE file used to install the client or add-in and <full path> is the path to the folder into which you want the MSI to be extracted.

  1. Thanks NextHop.  This will make our transition to Lync 2010 easier.

  2. Brian Blackburn says:

    Its definitely good to uninstall the Conferencing plug in for Outlook, but depending on the adoption rate of Lync by your business partners you may want to leave the Live Meeting client installed so you're users can join R1 R2 meetings.

    FYI… I have several customers that do remove the "Conferencing Add-in for Microsoft Office Outlook" but they do not remove the Live Meeting 2007 client even after they have installed the Lync 2010 client because they still recieve invitations from other companies that either use the Live Meeting Service in the cloud or you were invited to join a meeting that is hosted on the other companies OCS 2007 or OCS 2007 R2 environment.

    I can agree with the last 2 comments: still lot of federated companies are on OCS 2007 R1/R2. If we automatically remove all LiveMeeting clients after we have migrated to Lync, this will break the possibility to join into meetings hosted @ our federated partners. Think twice, before you act, that should be the bottom line of this article!

    FYI this appears to no longer work for extraction.

    Used:

    LMSetup.exe -out <full path>
