Installing MS Office 2019 standard in bulk
I have 40 new endpoints, on which I will be freshly installing Windows 10 home. I need a way to install MS Office 2019 using a MAK key, silently, preferably just after windows installation.
I have read the documentation and as far as I can see, the process in general is
1 Generate an XML file (straightforward)
2 Download Office using ODT (office deployment tool) and the XML file
3 Install Office using ODT and the same XML file
What I’m wondering is, can I just re-use whatever is downloaded at step 2 for all subsequent installs on other laptops, or are the installation files downloaded somehow specific to the original computer?
if so, I can just copy to the other PCs (or a USB key) the downloaded files from step 2, together with my XML and then install on the othe PCs. Will this work?
If you have a Volume License to deploy. look at macrium or other imaging tech
@Arnold - Windows is 'home' version, yes. But I've a VLK for the MS Office.
You can not image os ..
kimputer's suggestion using a USB going from system to system. Hat is the nature of the systems?
No easy ....
I.e. Workgroup share and use that to install from each over the network.
