Hi,

I used the installation manual of http://sharepointfarmer.com/onedrive-for-business-app-silent-install/#comment-16774 to install OneNote 2013 on our Office 2010 Windows 7 systems.

I do wonder why an install of > 1GB is needed while the setup-file is 1MB is needed?!
Especially two files stream.x86.x-none.dat and stream.x86.x-en-us.dat are gigantic in size (respectively 200 MB and 800 MB).
What are these files and what are they doing to my system?

Please advise on that."
J.

Are you doing a streaming install ? This what Office 2013 wants to do. I see this when I install Office.

As mentioned, I'm using http://sharepointfarmer.com/onedrive-for-business-app-silent-install/#comment-16774 , no clue what you are referring to.

What I should have called the above (was not in my Office) is Office Click-to-Run streaming install. Click-to-Run is a method where Office (or a component) starts to install and looks like it is running and then installs in the background.

If you have an Office Enterprise DVD, it will not use Click-to-Run, otherwise Office will use Click-to-Run.

This is very different from Office 2010.

Office Enterprise, if I understand correctly, has the install components on a DVD or in a big file. You do not download Office Enterprise on the fly. So for a traditional Office Enterprise install, nothing should be downloaded.

I do not know exactly what is happening to you above. One Note is MUCH bigger than 1 MB, so my guess is that Office uses the full install file (which is about 800 MB and could be bigger) to get the components it needs to install One Note.

Fair enough, no answer found but I'm not looking any furhter though.
Note: it was about OneDrive not OneNote.
