Remove Exchange Management Tools

Had an issue today where I wanted to remove Exchange Management tools but when I ran the uninstaller it complained that I needed to choose a role to uninstall but the issue was I only have the Exchange Management Tools installed to the uninstaller wouldn’t proceed. I found a very helpful forum post at TechNet which advised to use the command line uninstaller. The steps I used in order to remove Exchange Management Tools are below: This has been tested on Windows 7 64bit and Windows 8 64bit.

Make sure you switch off any antivirus programs or monitoring software before proceeding. The tmlisten service used by Trend Micro Office scan caused the un-installer to fail the first few times until I noticed the service name in the error message.

To begin. Open a Command Prompt with administrator privileges. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Microsoft\ then issue the following command: setup /m:uninstall /roles:MT and press enter.

The following screen should display and Exchange Management Tools un-installer should continue unassisted:

Exchange Un-assisted uninstaller.

When it has completed go into C:\Program Files and delete the Microsoft Folder. Assuming your Microsoft Folder only contains the Exchange folder. Also delete any desktop icons for Exchange you have. Then use a utility like Piriform’s CCleaner to remove files and registry entries left behind before rebooting. You should then be able to install the tools again.
