sysprep /generalize and office 2019 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I want to create image of windows 10 with already installed and not activated office 2019 for home and buisness. Then the system will be installed on few workstations and office 2019 will be actived on each of them with different serial key. Is it safe to do ? Any obstacles with activating are possible ?

    Kind Regards, Stefan

  • Hi Stefan,

    In my opinion, if there are some private information in the Windows 10 image, they will also be transformed to the new PC. I don't think this will be a good idea to create Windows 10 image and install it to other PCs.

  • Thank you for answer Emi Zhang,

    The windows image i mentioned will be completely clear. I will only install office 2019, without even opening it. Then i will use sysprep tool with option /generalize.

    Microsoft doesnt provide and tool to create custom XML file to automate Office 2019 Home&buissness installation.

    I only want to find out , whether there will be any obstacles with activating office 2019 on target machines. Every machine will be activated with unique key (i have over 50 machines).

    You can activate Office in each PC.

  • Hi,

    If you are afraid of something unexpected, you can test a machine first.
