SCCM Office 365 Installer Auto Activate

Jack Mulvihill

In SCCM I created a new Office 365 installer using the latest Semi Annual Channel build. It installs fine but doesn’t automatically activate. I’ve racked my brain for almost a week on this. The existing O365 installer activates fine when the logged in user opens an Office program for the first time. I’ve tried creating multiple installers with different settings but none of them will activate. I’ve checked GPO settings, updated the ADMX files for Win10-1903 and Office 365 in the sysvol central store. Any idea what the cause could be?

office 365 is licensed per user not per machine. On a computer with multiple users use a shared installation.


Thanks David.... Definitely good information.. My expectation should be that this is expected since O365 needs the individual to login for activation.
