Uninstalling silently SP 2 (Service Pack) for Microsoft Office 2010

Uninstalling line of SP 2 for MS Office 2010 can be found in registry:

Uninstalling string contain:

"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE14\Oarpmany.exe" /removereleaseinpatch "{90140000-0011-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE}" "{DE28B448-32E8-4E8F-84F0-A52B21A49B5B}" "1033" "0"

Applying this string in CMD doesn't provide silent uninstall. Tried separately Oarpmany.exe with help switch doesn't show any silent switches.

Workaround for silent uninstall of SP2 for Office 2010 was to apply the following command:

MsiExec.exe /package {90140000-0011-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE} /uninstall {DE28B448-32E8-4E8F-84F0-A52B21A49B5B} /qn

where {90140000-0011-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE} is Office 2010 GUID and {DE28B448-32E8-4E8F-84F0-A52B21A49B5B} is SP2 GUID specified in the uninstall string.
