Sequencing standalone Access 2013 use ODT? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can you successfully sequence standalone Access 2013 or do you need to use the ODT? App-V 5.SP2 HF4

    I can find instructions for the ODT OfficeProPlus Volume where you do exclusions

    But it does not seem to create a package with just Access. It took around 20 minutes to generate. But it still has everything in it.

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    
    -<Configuration>
    
    
    -<Add OfficeClientEdition="32" SourcePath="">
    
    
    -<Product ID="ProPlusVolume">
    
    <Language ID="en-us"/>
    
    <ExcludeApp ID="Excel"/>
    
    <ExcludeApp ID="InfoPath"/>
    
    <ExcludeApp ID="Lync"/>
    
    <ExcludeApp ID="Groove"/>
    
    <ExcludeApp ID="OneNote"/>
    
    <ExcludeApp ID="Outlook"/>
    
    <ExcludeApp ID="PowerPoint"/>
    
    <ExcludeApp ID="Publisher"/>
    
    <ExcludeApp ID="SharePointDesigner"/>
    
    <ExcludeApp ID="Word"/>
    
    </Product>
    
    </Add>
    
    <Display AcceptEULA="TRUE" Level="None"/>
    
    <Property Value="1" Name="AUTOACTIVATE"/>
    
    <Property Value="C1E20291-D13E-4338-82B3-B31F8EB948D5" Name="PACKAGEGUID"/>
    
    </Configuration>

    We have OfficePro installed locally on the build, with Access 2013 not installed. Want to control access to Access by AD group.

    Kind regards,

    Peter

  • Create your Access 2013 package using ODT on a clean machine (VM with snapshots).

  • Thanks I'll do that tomorrow. So generally people do it as per above, rather than sequencing standalone Access?

  • It doesn't need to be a clean machine or sequencer, but most of us do it on one anyway.

    The OS you do this on MUST BE x64, however.  Even if you want the x86 office version.

  • Hello Tim,

    While it isn’t a requirement to use ODT on a clean machine, I had many issues creating an AppV Office package using ODT a production machine (setup /create). Every time I had an issue, a clean VM did the job.

  • It seemed to take a while for the flattener to start, when I did it but it worked ok. Maybe it was re-downloading the files from Microsoft.
