With the release of latest LibreOffice I had to move most of my windows users from old openoffice to new libreoffice.
This turns out very simple with the use of few windows commands.
Here 192.168.3.2\soft_deploy is public share, which is to dump libreoffice installer.
wmic product where name="OpenOffice.org 3.2" call uninstall /nointeractive
msiexec /qn /i \\192.168.3.2\soft_deploy\libre\libre_setup.msi REGISTER_ALL_MSO_TYPES=1
If you wish to save all office files with default MS office extensions,
Change saving options from –> Tools –> Options –> Load/Save –> General
Change always save as for Text / Spreadsheet / Presentation
This will generate file in below location, which you can use to copy in other machines, to change default save options.
You can save followings as batch to run on other users.
cd %appdata% cd libreoffice\3\user xcopy /e /c /y \\192.168.3.2\soft_deploy\libre\config
here registrymodifications.xcu is stored in \\192.168.3.2\soft_deploy\libre\config
You can use following commands to uninstall apps using command prompt
WMIC product get name product where name="" call uninstall
