We recently rolled out Office 365 2016 suite (C2R) using the Office Deployment Tool and SCCM. We excluded Access from the install as most users don't need it and the ones that do needed to update their DB's before we deployed.
Now the organization is ready to roll out Access, but I'm unable to find a way to install Access using the ODT without uninstalling the whole Office Suite. When I run the setup.exe /configure configuration.xml, it uninstalls everything and just puts on Access.
Here is what my configuration.xml file looks like:
<Add OfficeClientEdition="32" Channel="Broad" OfficeMgmtCOM="TRUE">
<Language ID="en-us" />
<ExcludeApp ID="Excel" />
<ExcludeApp ID="Groove" />
<ExcludeApp ID="Lync" />
<ExcludeApp ID="OneDrive" />
<ExcludeApp ID="OneNote" />
<ExcludeApp ID="Outlook" />
<ExcludeApp ID="PowerPoint" />
<ExcludeApp ID="Publisher" />
<ExcludeApp ID="Word" />
<ExcludeApp ID="SharePointDesigner" />
<Updates Enabled="FALSE" />
<Display Level="None" AcceptEULA="TRUE" />
<Logging Level="Standard" Path="%temp%"/>
<Property Name="PinIconsToTaskbar" Value="FALSE"/>
Any ideas on how to add Access without uninstalling the whole suite?

Just thinking wouldn't you have the standard config that doesn't include Access and then the other config which includes everything from the standard config plus Access? Or wouldn't that work?

@cian - Yes, going forward, that's what we'll do. But the users that need Access already have 2016 installed. What I want to try and avoid is uninstalling the whole suite and installing again so we can minimize user impact.
I just want to add Access to the existing suite.

if I had the same problem... I have microsoft office proffesional plus 2016 and I managed to solve this issue.
1) open apps and features
2) find microsoft office proffesional plus 2016 (it might work on other offices as well)
4)then add or remove features
5)find microsoft access
6)click run from my computer
7)continue and restart Your PC and access should be there :)
I hope it works for You and other users who are facing this problem.
