Can't Exclude products from Office 365 with ODT to app-v. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I'm trying to setup Office 365 with ODT and package to App-v. I can setup the package, but When I Exclude products in the Config file, it wont take effect. Any help please. Thank you.

    <Configuration>

    <Add SourcePath="\\share\app-v\ODT\Download" OfficeClientEdition="32" >
        <Product ID="O365ProPlusRetail">
          <Language ID="en-us" />
     <ExcludeApp ID="Access" />
     <ExcludeApp ID="Groove" />
     <ExcludeApp ID="InfoPath" />
    </Product>
      </Add>
      <!--  <Updates Enabled="TRUE" UpdatePath="\\Server\Share\" /> -->
     <Display Level="Full" AcceptEULA="TRUE" />
      <!--  <Logging Path="%temp%" />  -->
       <Property Name="AUTOACTIVATE" Value="1" />
    </Configuration>

    I use this to package it to a share

    >setup.exe /packager <Configuration.xml file path> <output path>

  • Use a clean machine to make your Office package with ODT, where ODT never ran before.

    I use a VM with snapshots, revert to a clean state when making an Office package with ODT.

  • And if you first run: setup.exe /configure <Configuration.xml file path>

    And then setup.exe /packager <Configuration.xml file path> \\share\app-v\ODT\Download

  • That didn't work for the App-v. It did install it on the PC that I was running the /configure, but the App-v package didn't exclude the programs.

  • Thanks. That worked. This is what did it "where ODT never ran before".
