  • <Configuration>

    <Add OfficeClientEdition="32" >
    <Product ID="O365ProPlusRetail">
    <Language ID="en-us" />
    <ExcludeApp ID="Outlook" />
    <ExcludeApp ID="OneNote" />
    <ExcludeApp ID="Lync" />

    <Updates Enabled="FALSE" />

    <Display Level="None" AcceptEULA="TRUE" />

    <Logging Name="MSOffice365ProPlus.log" Path="%WINDIR%\Installer" />

    <Property Name="AUTOACTIVATE" Value="1" />


    Installs complete.
    Outlook, OneNote and Lync also installed.

    am i using correct names?

    I guess xml is case sensitive.
  • version 15.0.4551.1011 has problem.
    Same config file for version 15.0.4701.1002 works as expected.

The recommended way is to remove Office 365 completely and then reinstall using a customised XML file with the applications you DON'T want to install excluded using the 'ExcludeApp' element.
