Office 2010 to Office 2013 using Office Deployment Tool for Click-to-Run

Client has Citrix XenApp 6.5 with Office 2010 Professional Plus installed. Wants to upgrade to Office 365 Pro Plus.

Have checked with MS and using Office 365 Pro Plus (was is basically Office 2013 Pro Plus) is fine.

I have used the  Office Deployment Tool for Click-to-Run and downloaded the install.

I have blocked access to one of the XenApp 6.5 servers from users so I can install and test. I:
Removed Office 2010
Rebooted
Using the Office Deployment Tool for Click-to-Run install tool installed Office 2013
Worked fine

However, when I log in as a test user and fire up Outlook 2013 it runs trhough the First Time Run wizard. Client needs this not to happen. When a user logs in it should remember who they are and fire up Outlook based on the settings used for Outlook 2010. Still on same Office 365 tenant, same log ins etc. All that has changed is the software being used to access

Any ideas?

Thanks

As per my response to your other question, I've never used click-to-run deployments in an RDS environment.

Did you follow the MS installation guide - https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn782858.aspx ?

Sorry wasnt clear enough in first post. I have been through that document and followed it to the tee :-)

So, I have been through the technet how to.

This is the config file Im using to install:
"<Configuration>
<Add SourcePath="\\server\O365\Deploy\Install" OfficeClientEdition="32" >
    <Product ID="O365ProPlusRetail">
      <Language ID="en-us" />
    </Product>
  </Add>
<Updates Enabled="TRUE" UpdatePath="\\server\O365\Deploy\Install" />
<Display Level="None" AcceptEULA="TRUE" />
<Logging Path="%temp%" />
<Property Name="AUTOACTIVATE" Value="1" />
<Property Name="SharedComputerLicensing" Value="1" />
</Configuration>"

Going back to an 'MSI based install' is not an option as you have to use the Office Deployment Tool to install Office 365 Pro Plus onto RDS.

In addition to the configuration file, I think you'd still want to run the office15\setup.exe /admin option and create an admin file, then run setup.exe /adminfile <path.filename>.  That would let you pre-opulate the mail server settings.  I can't recall if the 2010 profiles would carry over to Office 2013.
