5 Best Ways To Set Up Microsoft Teams Machine Wide Installer.
Microsoft Teams is not like your average program when it comes to installing and uninstall it. Besides that, we also have Microsoft Teams machine-wide installer, which will automatically install Teams when a user logs in. Cleaning things up with Microsoft Teams can be quite challenging.
I tried for example to remove and re-install Teams for a user recently. After removing everything and re-installing Teams he ended up with a blank Teams app. So no chat history and no more Teams channels even though online everything was still visible. In this article, I will give you some tips and scripts to remove and cleanup Teams so you can re-install it again.
Make Teams a bit more fun with these funny backgrounds for Microsoft Teams. One of the most common errors with Microsoft Teams is the error Installation Has Failed which can appear when Teams tries to update. This error can keep coming back with every update and is pretty annoying. It will work for now, but the error will probably re-appear with the next update. We start with the easy part, simply uninstalling Microsoft Teams.
Some people commented that their Microsoft Teams keeps reinstalling itself after they have uninstalled it. This is most of the time caused by the Machine-Wide installer. I like to automate things as much as possible, so of course, we also have a PowerShell script to uninstall Microsoft Teams. The script will remove the Machine-Wide installer and Microsoft Teams self.
Make sure you run the PowerShell script in an elevated mode. You can do this by opening PowerShell as Admin. The script will check for the two possible installation locations of Teams and remove it when found. If you want to run this script for multiple users on the same computer , then you can use the following part in place of the Remove Teams for Current User section:. Just to be clear, you can safely uninstall the Teams Machine-wide installer.
All it does is install Teams for every user that signs in. You can uninstall the Teams Machine-wide installer in the settings screen or with a PowerShell script. This can be really useful if you need to remove it from multiple computers. So I had an occasion where I had to remove Microsoft Teams for users, but after re-installing Teams came back with no history.
The only solution to fix this was to clear the cache of Microsoft Teams. I expected it to be in the roaming AppData, but it turned out to be not the only location. We also need to clear the Chrome and Edge Cache to completely remove it.
Mark Vale had already created a really nice PowerShell script to clear the Microsoft Teams Cache, so we are going to use that:. I hope these scripts helped you remove and clean up Microsoft Teams.
If you want to re-install Microsoft Teams, then make sure you check out this article. Again thanks to Mark Vale for the clean-up script! Maybe this is an unspecified error that update. Thank you. This is an excellent script…thank you for publishing! However, I need it to be remotely executable. This seemed to worked fine as I have. The up-to-date profiles appear to be skipped due to version check and still have all files no.
But the Teams installer is a strange one, to be honest. Hi super, we are struggling with this because many times users have problems with logging in: there is an error occured. When i start the script for uninstalling multiple users then a error occures: uninstallteams is nog recognised as a cmdlet….? Make sure that you have loaded the function in PowerShell. I am copy the script to powershell ISE and then save it as a ps1. Then copy the ps1 to the local computer and then start it using. Am i doing this wrong?
Thanks for the script. Exactly what I was looking for. With the 2nd script by Mark to remove cache, it looks like it is for a single user case. Are you able to modify it to do a recursive delete for all users on the RDS server? You can only modify the start menu items with Windows 10 Enterprise. With Windows 10 pro you can only preconfigure the start menu for new users. One other item to remove from the appdata local would be the squirell temp directory. That will cause reinstalls to fail.
If that is cleaned up in one of the scripts above, sorry for not reading all the way thru. Wonder if SfB was set up the same way.
This is exactly what I needed since I suspect our Teams deployment has gone wrong and I need to remove it from multiple computers and user profiles. You cannot call a method on a null-valued expression. This is part of the whole problem with the Teams installation. Teams refuses to sign into my corporate SSO infrastructure whenever I reboot, for whatever corner-case reason that our IT cannot figure out, and the easiest remedy is to reinstall it on each reboot.
This script is perfect for automating such an annoying and should-be-unecessary task. Rhis PS script is exactly what I need but I keep getting this error for both machine wide or local user uninstall scripts. I was trying your script to uninstall teams for all user so they can get the newest version of Teams.
Because of FS Logix the profile folder is not on the session host when the user is logged off.. I am unfamiliar with FS Logix, but if I understand you correctly then your only option is to run the script when the user is logged in and run it in the user context. Maybe a simple scheduled task on the server that is triggered at login?
I was trying to use your script to uninstall Teams for al users on an rds environment. This because I needed to update it and this seems the only way to get the job done.. Tried multiple times with same outcome. Hi, About the uninstallation for multiple users on the same computer: The uninstallation command for each user is intended to be run in the user session.
Can you really run this per-user uninstallation command for every user from a unique admin session? Even with admin rights you may not have write access to the users files, directories, registry entries. As local admin you should have access to the users files.
I used it last week and it was working fine. I did get some errors, but those were for the local admin user account. Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.

Any way to remove the HKCU uninstall strings as well? Thank you!
Seems like there is something wrong with the path. This script worked great. Now, how do you remove Teams from start menus? Last script, line 7 and 8 — uninstall is spelled wrong.
Hey Rudy This is exactly what I needed since I suspect our Teams deployment has gone wrong and I need to remove it from multiple computers and user profiles. However: I get the same error as mentioned above You cannot call a method on a null-valued expression. Ah I see. Thanks for the explanation!
