Office 2016 updates within Vmware and HyperV

MOPUser used Ask the Experts™
Hi All

I am currently in the process of building a Windows 10 1803 image in both HyperV and VMware horizon. Our Office products are managed by KMC licensing.

I am wondering how to go about pulling down Office updates? due to the KMC licensing the update option that is normally present in a standard licensed version (home user) is no longer present.  When I run windows OS updates no office update come down either.

Usually we push our Office Update's down via SCCM but as this is a base image I want to have the office version as up to date as possible before we deploy the Windows 10 build to our users.  The SCCM client will not be on the base image as you are moving to inTune.

OS build Windows 10 1803 - Office 2016 Updates

Any advice would be greatly apricated.

OS updates would do office updates as well unless you had selected not to. Please simply check your options in windows update.
If this is a base image, you can simply run Windows updates locally on the machine.  If you need to set certain parameters, edit the local group policies to manage whatever you need for the initial update and then once you get the machine(s) in regular production I assume your domain group policies will enforce the correct settings.

Hi All, I hadn't ticked the option within advanced settings to pull down updates for other Microsoft products. Don't know how I missed that!!  Future updates will then be managed by SCCM.

Thanks for you help.
