I cannot download a previous version of Office 365 ProPlus

I am testing the Office Deployment Tool for office 2013 (Office 15).
I'm trying to download a previous build with the setup.exe /download command but am not able to.

This is my custom configuration file:
<Configuration>
  <Add SourcePath="\\SRV01\Office" version="15.0.4745.1002" OfficeClientEdition="32">
    <Product ID="O365ProPlusRetail">
      <Language ID="en-us" />
    </Product>
  </Add>
</Configuration>

Open in new window


The version that is being downloaded is 15.0.4753.1003 (=current release)

Is this possible at all?

I dont have ODT here to test, but I wouldnt be surprised if they blocked old versions now that we have O2016 available. Seems a bit strange though...

Try doing it on the 'client-side' via:

officec2rclient.exe /update user updatetoversion=15.0.4745.1002

Vasil,

I hope someone can help me on the ODT solution

And yes clientside would also work but not preferable because cannot centralise the bits.

OK I tested in my lab, I can confirm the issue. No workaround I can think of apart from the client-side thingy... Let me ask around.

Figured it out - stupid XML file respects capitalization. Use "Version" instead of "version":

<Configuration>
  <Add SourcePath="\\SRV01\Office" Version="15.0.4745.1002" OfficeClientEdition="32">
    <Product ID="O365ProPlusRetail">
      <Language ID="en-us" />
    </Product>
  </Add>
</Configuration>
