Inspired by Trond Eric Haavarstein’s evergreen PowerShell setup scripts, I created a download and install script for Office 365 Deployment Tool (ODT).
Microsoft Office 365 is the new standard in the EUC space right now. To honor this, we need a fast and reliable way to install it with our favorite deployment tools like MDT or PDQ, for example when you rebuild your master images.
There are a few different ways to deploy Office 365, but they are all similar:
- You need the Office 365 Click-to-run setup.exe (Office Deployment Tool (ODT))
- You need a XML configuration file
- You decide to deploy from a pre-build offline cache or the files are downloaded from Microsoft each and every time
And then you go:
setup.exe /configure configuration.xml
Pretty straight forward you think, but non the less I had problems with this approach. And this is due to the fact, that the Office Deployment Tool itself gets updated pretty often. And this breaks your unattended deployments sooner or later, as the setup.exe stops working. Continue reading “Download and install latest Office 365 via Office Deployment Tool (ODT)”
