  • There would be no technical issues with adding it to the image and perhaps managing the license with the Microsoft Volume Activation Tool,

    but I wouldn't recommend it, and that's just my opinion.

    I would rather create a silent installation and have it as an option during the deployment or pushed through whatever source you use for software distribution. I think it would be easier to manage this way.

  • Its nothing more than personal preference. I like to keep things clean and organized. I avoid putting anything on the image that isn't used by everyone, and prefer to approach an issue like yours through SCCM because of management and reporting purposes.

  • Thank you very much for the answers,

    Frank, could you please to elaborate in few words yours: "but I wouldn't recommend it, and that's just my opinion"

    It's just a professional feeling or you have some real life examples/possible problems.

    I just thought that, when in image the install process would be faster, but if it could create problems, sure better to spend 7 minutes more for install.
