Software Deployment Question
Upgrading to Office 2016
05/12/2016 10898 views
We are currently having Office 365 with the 2013 version of Office.
We are planning to upgrade to Office 2016. When we try to install Office 2016 it fails with the below error: Upgrade failed with error code 17004
Uninstalling the 2013 version and then installing the 2016 version works fine.
We would like to configure a single deployment to uninstall 2013 version and install 2016 version via SCCM.
Any ideas implementing the above.

The Microsoft Office customization tool will allow you not only to install 2016 silently but also remove all previous versions before installing. We had some issues with MAK activation but found an easy fix for it without much trouble. Other than that, the customization tool worked wonders. Run the setup.exe with an /admin switch to get to the configuration tool.
