Software Deployment Question
Using the same Office 2016 offline installer for multiple setup options
When I was deploying any of the Office 2016 apps from a server share I would setup my folder for my deployment to download all the Office components that I needed and create separate XML configuration files for each type of install.
My shared folder would look like:
Office\Data\ (folder structure with install files)
So if I wanted to install ProPlus alone I would run:
setup.exe /configure ProPlus.xml
and similar for each of the other configurations that I wanted. The one drawback is that this creates a folder structure that is about 1.5 GB in size even when zipped to use on the K1000.
I would like to use the same zip file to deploy any of my configurations (ProPlus, Visio, Project or everything) like I did with the file share, however I do not want to have to store a 1.5 GB zip for each of my configurations. Is it possible to upload my Office2016.zip file and set my software distributions to use the same zip file for installing, but call the right XML file based on what app I want to install?
