Im trying to deploy Office 2013 proofing tool trough SCCM 2012. I haven't created anything in SCCM yet since i try to get my silent installation to work first.

The problem that i expiernence is that no proofing tool won't install. Please see my config.xml file down below.

<Configuration Product="Proofkit">

<Display Level="Basic" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="no" AcceptEula="yes" />
<OptionState Id="ProofingTools_1053" State="Absent" Children="force" />
<OptionState Id="ProofingTools_1044" State="Absent" Children="force" />
<OptionState Id="ProofingTools_2068" State="Absent" Children="force" />
<OptionState Id="ProofingTools_1030" State="Absent" Children="force" />
<OptionState Id="ProofingTools_1035" State="Absent" Children="force" />
<Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="Never" />
<!-- <Setting Id="KMSSERVICENAME" Value="oa-o14kms-02.redmond.corp.microsoft.com" /> -->


What im trying to do with this config file is to install the following proofing tools:
  • Swedish
  • Norwegian (BokmÃ¥l)
  • Norwegian (Nynorsk)
  • Danish
  • Finnish
I start the installation via powershell with the following command: .\setup.exe /config "C:\Users\USERNAME\Desktop\Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013 Proofing Tool 15\proofkit.ww\config.xml"

Does anyone have any suggestions what im doing wrong?

Thank in advance!

SCCM does not have access to user profiles so specifying a location in a user profile for the XML configuration file looks like a possible cause for your failure. Try it in a different, common, location.

Also, are you really pointing at a KMS server located at Microsoft or is this just to conceal your real KMS server?

Glad you spotted the absent thing, all you needed was to set it to local. (as you discovered)

On the KMS thing, I have never configured that in the XML file (I am also guessing you were not actually using the Microsoft server....) , get the KMS into DNS and you're done. Nice and easy.
