Automatic Installation Volume License Office 2019 with MDT

    Question

  • Hello,

    i want a automatic installation of Office 2019 deployed with MDT (as application).

    With earlier versions of MS Office i did by : setup.exe /config proplus.ww\config.xml

    I think this is not possible anymore with Office 2019.

    Until now i can deploy office 2019 with the setup.exe and configuration-Office365-x64.xml

    My xml-file is:

    <Configuration>
      <Add OfficeClientEdition="64" DownloadPath ="http://officecdn.microsoft.com/pr/ea4a4090-de26-49d7-93c1-91bff9e53fc3">
        <Product ID="ProPlus2019Volume"> PIDKEY="xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx" >
          <Language ID="MatchOS" />    
        </Product>
      </Add>
      <Updates UpdatePath="http://officecdn.microsoft.com/pr/ea4a4090-de26-49d7-93c1-91bff9e53fc3" />
    </Configuration>

    With this setup, the volume licensing version is downloaded, and installed.

    Problem:

    After starting an Office Application, office must still be activated with the same key.

    Anybody having a (better?) solution for the deploying Office 2019 with mdt?

    Anybody having a solution for the activation-problem?

    Thx

  • I used my config.xml to download the files and then went ahead and used 7z SFX builder to build an executable file that ran the command I needed to install Office 2019.  I have yet to run into an issue where it asked for additional activation.

  • You have an extra > in the line prior to your Product key.

    Should be

    <Product ID="ProPlus2019Volume" PIDKEY="xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx" >

    I found this out by using your config file for my own installation and discovering that the syntax had an issue.

    Hope this helps
