Hello,

I am looking for a script that will allow me to push out the upgrade of Office 365 from 2013 to 2016. I am trying to write one so that we can push it out to all of our 375 users with out having to go to each machine and install that way. We had to do that initially for Office 365. We had to uninstall Office 2010 and then install Office 365 it was a nightmare. So I am trying to simplify the situation. If anyone can help me please get back to me.

Depending on the license of Office 365 you own you can use http://officedev.github.io/Office-IT-Pro-Deployment-Scripts/XmlEditor.html to create an unattended anser file for use with http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkID=626065.
You then would run "Setup.exe /download answerfile.xml" to download the content to deliver and "Setup.exe /configure answerfile.xml" to install.

The answerfile.xml would look something like:
<Configuration>
    <Add OfficeClientEdition="32" Channel="Deferred">
        <Product ID="O365ProPlusRetail">
            <Language ID="en-us"/>
        </Product>
    </Add>
    <Updates Enabled="TRUE" Channel="Deferred"/>
    <Display Level="None" AcceptEULA="TRUE"/>
    <Logging Level="Standard"/>
    <Property Name="AUTOACTIVATE" Value="1"/>
    <Property Name="FORCEAPPSHUTDOWN" Value="TRUE"/>
    <Property Name="SharedComputerLicensing" Value="0"/>
    <Property Name="PinIconsToTaskbar" Value="FALSE"/>
</Configuration>
