that i already know. but what is wrong in my configuration then? i know that the office 365 pro plus can be installed on terminal server

The /download flag does not install office. It *only* downloads the files for offline deployments, such as scripted or SCCM deployments. Did you check your source path to see if files were downloaded. A five minute wait tells me they probably were.

You also specified a logging path, so logs will also exist in that path to tell you what problems may have occurred, if any.

yes i see cab files there. how can i adjust this script so it installes also
Cliff GaliherCommented:
Simply run setup.exe and use the /configure flag instead of the /download flag. It will use the files already downloaded. No need to change the xml file at all.
