Microsoft does not provide an msi file for installing Office 2019. The user is supposed to run the ODT tool to create an xml file and download the Office files to a network share. I created the xml file (PID key and path have been altered). I have run setup.exe /configure configuration.xml and setup.exe /download configuration.xml The end result is a folder called Office and the size is 2.72 GB and 10 files in two folders. I do not see the setup file to run the install on our workstations. Any help would be appreciated.
<Configuration> <Add SourcePath="\\server\share\OFF2K19STD" OfficeClientEdition="64" Channel="PerpetualVL2019"> <Product ID="Standar2019Volume" PIDKEY="xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx" > <Language ID="en-us" /> </Product> <Product ID="ProofingTools"> <Language ID="en-us" /> </Product> </Add> <RemoveMSI All="True" /> <Display Level="None" AcceptEULA="TRUE" /> </Configuration>
They're removing the MSI installation option to "encourage" their customers to adopt the subscription model instead of a perpetual licensed product like Office 2019.
Are your workstations running Windows 10?
Anyhow, after you've downloaded all the files using the /download switch. Use the same ODT tool again and run this command in PowerShell or Command Prompt to initiate the installation:
setup.exe /configure configuration.xml
Did you get Office 2019 through TechSoup?
I'm trying to figure out when it will be available here. The Microsoft Versions site on TechSoup hasn't been updated since May. https://www.techsoup.org/current-versions-of-microsoft-products
