Has anyone had any luck with deploying Office 2016 for Mac as a post install task in the K2000?  There is an issue with the package scripts that create the license file, detailed here, that I can't seem to sort out.  Supposedly this has been resolved in the latest version of the VLS installer, but I am still running into the problem when trying to install it as a post install during imaging.

There isn't anything on this site yet regarding this application, so let's start the conversation.

Currently, I am packaging the installer with this shell script so that I can capture debugging information:

touch /var/log/office_2016_std_install.log
exec 1>/var/log/office_2016_std_install.log 2>&1

echo "Running as $(whoami)"

echo "Installing Office 2016 STD..."
installer -verbose -pkg Microsoft_Office_2016_Volume_Installer.pkg -target /

exit 0

Answered my own question:

I have written a post-install script for our OSX image that runs Apple updates to bring the OS up to the latest version.  If that runs before the installation of Office 2016, the licensing script in the package will fail.  The solution was to simply move the Office 2016 install task to execute before the Apple update task.
