Office 365 Pro Plus Download via ODT w/ SCCM

Occasional Contributor

So I am working with SCCM to do some deployments of office pro plus to our folks, unfortunately I am in a position where I have to include like 7 languages so the install is getting up there in size, pretty substantial...when I tried to do separate downloads of project and visio to lighten the load, I noticed my bits were the same size across the board...


it didnt matter what product I put in the download XML, only time it changed was when I was specifying x86 vs x64


only other way I can think of lightening the payload is in the task sequence probing for the languages and selecting different sccm payloads, but that can get messy quick...

Hi Russell,


When you download Office from the CDN to a local source (using /download via ODT or by creating an Application in SCCM), the core package that is downloaded contains all the Office apps.  As you noted you will see a difference between x86 and x64 but currently there is no way to only download a subset of the Office apps.  For customers that need to manage the deployment of Office from a local source we recommend downloading the core Office files and the language packs that may be needed to a single location.  Using this location you can create multiple configuration XML files for the various deployments you need to manage within your environment.


Thanks Chris,

That is pretty much what I did after the I am revamping some methodology and offerings in SCCM
