Dear All
I'm working on Office 2013 deployment
In order to avoid having to install Office, then Project, Then Visio, Then InfoPath, I would like to "merge" all installation
I know that extracting all DVD in the same folder then you can have a single location point of the install, as I did for Office 2010, But I would like to have 1 single installer
I saw all the setup.xml in each "*.ww" folders (ProPlus.ww, Visio.ww ...) & each of them have the list of MSI, CAB, xml ..

<File Id="VisProWW.xml" MD5="82B076E0A4FC89F2A9A09D30FEF22175" Size="0" RelativeCachePath="VisProWW.xml" RelativeSourcePath="VisProWW.xml"/>
<File Id="VisProWW.msi" MD5="044CB7EA36D1320B44CAE5B0E4FB996C" Size="9474048" RelativeCachePath="VisProWW.msi" RelativeSourcePath="VisProWW.msi"/>
<File Id="" MD5="7CC6811604F331AD910D6B4FAAFFC108" Size="220332467" RelativeCachePath="" RelativeSourcePath=""/

so I tried to add the Visio inside the proplus.ww\setup 

<LocalCache DownloadCode="{90150000-0011-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE}" SkuComponentDirectory="ProPlus.WW">

<File Id="Setup.xml" MD5="" Size="" RelativeCachePath="Setup.xml" RelativeSourcePath="Setup.xml"/>

 but each time I do a single change in the xml the OCT failed ( I've got an error "Failed to get available Product info")
Any idea ? is it even possible ?

I think you can't...they are seperate products.

You can however script the installation and install silently.

  • Thanks
    It's stupid you can''t do it, as even if it's different product it's the same suite (as Word & Excel are differents products, you can get them separatly, but they are merged into Office as well)
    Making my life more painful : the "shared tools" & Co have to be configured in each of them even if they are the same :(
