SCCM and Office 365 2016 deployment - Suppress features?

Recommended Posts

Hi every,

I was wondering if someone can assist me or provide some info regarding the deployment of Office 2016 via SCCM 2012. I created a package in SCCM to deploy office 2016 and I am successful in installing the package but the taskbar icons do not populate with the default shortcuts MS creates when installing the software. However, when I manually install the set.exe with the .xml configuration, it creates the task bar icons as the set.exe feature provides this.

I was wondering if there is something SCCM is doing in the background that is suppressing the setup.exe from creating these icons? Here is my .xml configuration:




<Add SourcePath="\\server\software$\Microsoft\O365_2016\Setup" OfficeClientEdition="32" Branch="Business">
<Product ID="O365ProPlusRetail">
<Language ID="en-us" />
<ExcludeApp ID="Groove" />

<Updates Enabled="TRUE" Branch="Business" />

<Display Level="Full" AcceptEULA="TRUE" />

<Property Name="AUTOACTIVATE" Value="1" />
