Separate installers for 64 and 32-bit Office 365

I'm installing O365 Business Premium using the following as the .xml file for configuration. It removes the previous version of Office and installs O365 pretty consistently when deployed via Distribution > Managed Installations.


<Add SourcePath="\\server\share\microsoft office 365\64\" OfficeClientEdition="64">

<Product ID="O365BusinessRetail">

<Language ID="en-us" />



<Display Level="Full" AcceptEULA="TRUE" />

<Remove All="TRUE" />

<RemoveMSI />


My process was to first install O365 (64-bit) on a workstation and then force inventory on that workstation in Kace. I clicked on the resulting "installed software" entry for that version O365 and uploaded and associated the .zip of installation files. I then created a managed installation entry for 64-bit Office 365. It works as expected.

How do I create a second Managed Installation for the 32-bit installation? If I upload the .zip with the 32-bit installation, it overwrites the 64-bit zip that is associated with the software package.

Change the name of the package and upload it to the SMA as a sepparate/new software package.

Here you can also check the Supported Operating Systems and make sure you only check the non 64-bit versions of Windows.
