User State Migration Tool (USMT) Support for Office 2016 and Beyond RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does Microsoft plan to add support for Office 2016 in USMT?

    Similarly does Microsoft plan to add support for Office 2016 to 'Office vNext' in 'USMT vNext'?

    I realize UE-V is an option, but knowing how much development Microsoft has planned for USMT helps us determine our user settings & data backup/restore/migration strategy moving forward.

  • You don't have to wait on them, just edit the MigApp.xml file and add in sections for Office16. You should pretty much be able to just copy the Office 15.0 section and change the numbers to 16.0. Alternatively instead of editing migapp.xml you can create your own xml file and then add it to customsettings.ini so it's processed by usmt.
