o365 or office 2016/19 RRS feed

  • Question

  • we currently have w7 x64 and Office 2013 x86 pro plus

    However we are planning to move to W10 1803 and thinking of upgrading office to 2016

    I see there are options of using 0365 client as well x86 (click to run stuff) , we also have plans to move to o365 for mails later next year 

    What do you suggest shall we go with office 2016 msi (traditional) one or office 365 client

    where to download the office 365 x86 client from for windows 10

  • I would use the Click to run version and install the x86 edition.  That will better prepare you for Office 2019 which I don't think will have an MSI install version.

  • O365ProPlus is publicly downloadable - but it will not activate features without the correct cloud tenant license activation.
    It is not offered via VLSC download,
