Hi, sorry for posting a lot of questions. I'm just trying to figure out some stuff that MSIX can do, as we are trying to move away from App-V 5 which is not all that easy.

 

Next up is Office Addins, from what I understand MSIX doesn't support these, when Office is installed locally, correct? So what is the procedure with Office addins, do I package Office together with the addins? Or should I not use MSIX for addins and just install them locally.

 

Is MSIX supported with Office 365 anyway?

Hi @martijnk79 Thank you for posting. We currently do not support this scenario. We do not recommend you package Office and its addins as an MSIX. Office is working longer term on adopting MSIX through a phased approach in a way that addresses Enterprise needs without disruption.
