Software Deployment Question

Installing a 32 or 64 bit software

01/20/2015 1634 views

We have all 64 bit OS installed on our laptops, but when they rolled out Office 365 installations some users chose the default 32 bit and some chose the 64.

I have an add in for office that has separate installers depending upon which office version they have installed.

is there a way in the K1000 I can see what installs are where so I can create a label and set each instance to install to the correct version of office needed?

  • You're aware, are you, that Microsoft explicitly counsels users to NOT install 64-bit Office? I would remove it as an option.

What I did for office 2010 & 2013 was what jegolf said, create a CIRs then you can create labels based on that CIRs

here are screen shots and you can adapt them to your needs.

Does the software inventory give any difference in the title you could create a smart label for? Another option would be to create custom inventory rules. One that looks for C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15 and one that looks for C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15...that might work for you.
