  • Thanks, I did do this but I get a message "Couldn't Install" We're sorry, we had a problem installing your Office programs.
  • Create a config file using https://config.office.com/deploymentsettings
    You can name the config file anything you want, as long as the file extension remains XML. As Hobbsy stated, place that config file in the same directory as setup.exe for the Office setup files, and then zip it all together.

    My script looks like this, and is for an x64 environment. It activates Office, as the product key was specified in the config file.

    Task 1

    On Success

    Unzip “$(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)\Microsoft Office Pro Plus 2019.zip” to “$(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)”.
    Launch “$(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)\setup.exe” with params “ /configure $(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)\Config_1.0.xml”.

    Task 2


    Verify that the file “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\WINWORD.EXE” exists.

    On Success

    Launch “SYS\cmd.exe” with params “cscript ”C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office16\ospp.vbs“ /act”.
    Log “Office 2019 Successfully installed and activated” to “status”.


    Log “Installation FAILED” to “status”.
    Always Fail.

Google any installation for Office to get the basics, but in a nutshell, configure your installation using the tool to create your admin file.

Create a zip file with all your office setup files and include your admin file at the same level as Setup.exe

Create a managed installation with the command line to include your adminfile
