I'm trying to install Office 365 Pro Plus via the Office Deployment Tool and while executing the program for install, i receive immediate the following error: "Couldn't install, We're sorry, we had a problem installing your Office program(s).
I modified the configuration.xml file with the following options:

<Configuration>

  <Add SourcePath="\\ServerName\ClientApps\Office365\" OfficeClientEdition="32" >
    <Product ID="O365ProPlusRetail">
      <Language ID="nl-nl" />
    </Product>
    </Add>
   <Property Name="SharedComputerLicensing" Value="1" />
   <Logging Level="Standard" Path"%temp%" />
</Configuration>

And i use the following command: (in a batch file) setup.exe /configure configuration.xml

I have tried it to install from the network and from the local computer, nothing works.

In the logfile i see the following error message:
09/05/2014 11:41:24.353      SETUP (0x1ab8)      0xfdc            Click-To-Run      ambbl      Unexpected      ConfigureUpdatesSettings::HandleStateAction: OException has occured while trying to launch uninstallation UnexpectedError (ConfigureUpdatesSettings::HandleStateAction Unable to find a client installed at: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 15\ClientX64).      

Am i missing something?

Check the first line of the log file, the exact CMDLINE that was run. Something is not correct there.

The CMDLINE is OK. When placing the installation files locally on the target computer and a change in the configuration.xml, the installation runs fine. In an other forum, someone said that probably not all files are downloaded that causes the error. So i tried to download the files again (from the client to the server) and started the setup again. Now everything works fine!
