Adding Outlook to MS Office pro 2013, 2016 and 2019
My organization is migrating from GroupWise to Exchange here soon and I need to make sure everyone has Outlook installed in addition to their Word, Excel, Power Point .. Etc. Starting off I created a configuration.xml file for our Office Pro 2013 folks and made sure Outlook was in the .xml file (<OptionState Id="OUTLOOKFiles" State="Local" Children="force" />) . I ran the SETUP /Config /configuration.xml file locally on the test systems and it installed no problem and also on the machines that had office pro but no Outlook it worked like a charm, as well removing other office components.
The problem I am running into is that if I use Managed Installation on my KACE SMA the machines that all ready has that version of office installed wont deploy because it see it on there.
Is there another process of doing this to make sure everyone has Outlook on their systems?
