How to add another Office 2019 application via Microsoft ODT?

sursan 1 Reputation point


I have a question about Office 2019 deployment with Microsoft ODT / Volume licencing.

I have created a configuration1.xml excluding everything but Outlook, Word and Excel, I have downloaded the files with

setup /download configuration1.xml

and the deployed it on a computer with

setup /configure configuration1.xml

Everything went well.

Then we needed to deploy Teams and PowerPoint, so I have created a configuration2.xml based on configuration1.xml, with the only difference is that I have removed the corresponding ExcludeApp lines.

Then I have downloaded the files with

setup /download configuration2.xml

and the deployed it on the same computer with

setup /configure configuration2.xml

But there was no change, the new applications were not deployed.

Is it any flag i should set? Or remove first the current deployment of Office 2019 and then deploy the new configuration?

Thank you in advance for your help!

    Based on your description, I did a test on my computer and didn't reproduce your issue.




    Please try the command setup.exe /configure configuration1/2.xml to have a check.
    Note: make sure to quote the correct path.

    Besides, as volume licensed version of Office 2019 doesn't include Microsoft Teams, you may need to install it alone.

    Any updates, please let me know.

    Thank you very much for your answer!

    You are probably right for Teams, but for the other I don't get it. I have actually made an error in my question, it was Outlook missing, not PowerPoint. But I don't think it makes a difference.

    The only difference I see is that you have a ProPlus licence, I have a Standard one. But Outlook is included in the Standard one as well.

    I attach also my second configuration xml file, just in case you see any error.

      <Add SourcePath="\ODT\Office2019StdOutlook" OfficeClientEdition="64" Channel="PerpetualVL2019" AllowCdnFallback="TRUE">
        <Product ID="Standard2019Volume">
          <Language ID="en-us" />
          <ExcludeApp ID="Teams" /> 
          <ExcludeApp ID="Lync" /> 
          <ExcludeApp ID="OneDrive" /> 
          <ExcludeApp ID="Groove" /> 
          <ExcludeApp ID="Access" />
          <ExcludeApp ID="Visio" />
        <Product ID="ProofingTools">
          <Language ID="de-de" />
          <Language ID="fr-fr" />
          <Language ID="it-it" />
          <Language ID="es-es" />
          <Language ID="en-us" />
          <Language ID="pt-pt" />
      <Property Name="SharedComputerLicensing" Value="0" />
      <Property Name="PinIconsToTaskbar" Value="TRUE" />
      <Property Name="SCLCacheOverride" Value="0" />
      <!-- Property Name="AUTOACTIVATE" Value="1" / -->
      <Property Name="FORCEAPPSHUTDOWN" Value="FALSE" />
      <Property Name="DeviceBasedLicensing" Value="0" />
      <Updates Enabled="TRUE" />
      <RemoveMSI />
        <Setup Name="Company" Value="FIM" />
      <Display Level="Full" AcceptEULA="TRUE" />

    I haven't tried yet to completely remove my Office 2019 installation ...

    Sorry, it is a copy-paste error, the second command is of course with /configure in both cases, you cannot deploy Office 2019 with /download switch, this is just to create the deployment files.

    I have fixed the original post.

    The first configuration file had only one more line before the one excluding Teams:

    <ExcludeApp ID="Outlook" />

    (so this was inserted as line 6).

    Otherwise they are strictly identical, I have just done a diff.

    I have not completely removed the existing Office 2019 installation yet, it is the next thing to do, but I wanted to find a solution to add an app to an existing installation.
    I guess I will not loose user's customizations (like the Quick Access bar in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.)

    As for the languages, I can try to remove them, although I don't see why would they impeach Outlook installation ...

    Thank you again!
