Add Visio and Project to existing session hosts

Copper Contributor


We have one hostpool with two session host. Both session hosts were deployed from the marketplace with Windows 10 20H2 including Office 365 apps.


Now I need the add Visio Pro 2019 (from Visio Plan 2) and MS Project 2019 (from MS Project P3) to both hosts. There are some users with such a license.


I am not very sure how to install both applications on the hosts. Can I only download the OfficeSetup installer and install the apps, or to I need to deploy the apps with the Office Deployment Tool?


Maybe someone have experience?

I would say something like a DSC that downloads the office installer and install visio and project

@breakplease Did you ever find the configuration xml file used by the marketplace image to add Visio?

Thanks. The 64-bit version downloadable through the Office 365 Portal - apps download seems to be working.
