Deploy only Project and or Visio

Regular Contributor

Hi There

 

Is there a way to deploy only Project and or Visio WITHOUT the rest of the Office 365 ProPlus components (Word, Excel etc)?

 

Info appreciated.

Visio and Project in Office 365 use separate installers from the rest package (Word, Excel, etc.). I'm not sure about Intune though.

Hi Stuart,

There was a Uservoice for exactly this raised back in April which, as someone points out in October, still isn't possible (https://microsoftintune.uservoice.com/forums/291681-ideas/suggestions/34009090-split-office-365-proj...) and that you still need to install Visio or Project alongside a core Office 365 application.

There is a suggested workaround here, suggested in August

So to resolve this issue, you're forced to go the old way (ODT - Office Deployment Tool) by creating a package with Only Project, or Visio and deploying it as a line of business app.

Hope that helps

Best, Chris
