Logging The logging control lets you determine he log name and path where logs are written to. Property FORCEAPPSHUTDOWN This command forces an install, uninstall or update. Office Click-to-Run updating is designed to be a background experience and updates are applied when a user closes and reopens the Office program. This property in the configuration file will force the operation without prompting the user, so there is some chance of data loss when programs are closed.

This would be used in roll back scenarios if you detect an issue that requires you to roll back to a previous version.
