M365 Apps - Installing Visio and Project Autopilot

Copper Contributor

Hi All,


Just had a little bit of a scenario where we had the Visio and Project apps deployed through Intune for out autopilot test devices not installing correctly. We had about 50% successful installs using the intune M365 configuration designer. The error logs pointed to an issue during install, which ended up being other office apps being open.


We resolved this by rebuilding the app deployments, and selecting the XML data option instead of the Intune Configuration designer.



The key property missing in the configuration designer is the 

  <Property Name="FORCEAPPSHUTDOWN" Value="TRUE" />
Here is the XML I used to properly deploy Project through Intune to my autopilot device:
<Add OfficeClientEdition="64" Channel="Current" MigrateArch="TRUE">
<Product ID="ProjectProRetail">
<Language ID="en-us" />
<Property Name="SharedComputerLicensing" Value="0" />
<Property Name="SCLCacheOverride" Value="0" />
<Property Name="AUTOACTIVATE" Value="0" />
<Property Name="FORCEAPPSHUTDOWN" Value="TRUE" />
<Property Name="DeviceBasedLicensing" Value="0" />
<Updates Enabled="TRUE" />
<RemoveMSI />
<Display Level="Full" AcceptEULA="TRUE" />

@Bmiller_IPL Thanks for sharing. Did you also report back to MS support or the product team? 

@Jan Bakker I have reported it :) 

Just thought I'd post this here in the meantime where we have to workaround the issue.
