I need to remove the ability to uninstall Office 2010 SP1. Is there anyway to install officesuite2010sp1-kb2460049-x86-fullfile-en-us.exe using a switch like "nobackup" , "nouninstall" or something like this? Thanks...

delete the uninstall entry from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall and delete the corresponding MSI/MSP from the folder C:\Windows\Installer

Thanks, i'm going to try this in a virtual machine. It's a "safe" method? I mean if it's possible to apply future updates even if C:\Windows\Installer items are missing.

I think the msp is only accessed if you remove the Sp1. Updates have their own msp file. Try it out in a VM and let me know the result. I haven't tried it.

Problem here, SP1 is not listed under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall. I think because it's listed under "Updates" in control panel... but i can't find the reg key. Do you know where is it?
