Office 2016 Deployment Customization

I am making Office 2016 "available" to all the users via SCCM. The main problem is that I would like to add MS Publisher to this particular setup. I already have customized the installed using MS Office Customization tool and enabled publisher in it. Also, I have done the update content on the package. But when I run the installer, does not installs publisher and exits the setup saying the MS-Office 2016 is already installed (as MS-Office 2016 is already installed on user computer). Summarizing, would like to add just the Publisher so that users can install MS-Publisher, when required.

If you have Office 2016 PROFESSIONAL, Publisher should be included.  which 'flavor' of 2016 do you have?

you've created a package that includes publisher and the other apps?  try a package with just publisher

We are using Office 2016 professional (32 Bit). I have tried creating a package only with Publisher but the result is the same.
Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

Try doing what is described here, where publisher is listed in the intructions
