Weekly Tip: Update Office 365 apps from a local location

Update Office 365 apps from a local location

Use the Office Deployment Tool to download the latest source files from Microsoft. Modify the configuration file by adding the products and architecture that you want. Example:

<Configuration>

<Add SourcePath=”C:\office2016″” OfficeClientEdition=”32″>

<Product ID=”O365ProPlusRetail”>

<Language ID=”en-us” />

</Product>

<Product ID=”VisioProRetail”>

<Language ID=”en-us” />

</Product>

</Add>

</Configuration>

After the files download, upload them to a network share on your network. When you install Office 365, use a similar configuration file with the UpdatePath parameter. Example:

<Configuration>

<Add OfficeClientEdition=”32″>

<Product ID=”O365ProPlusRetail”>

<Language ID=”en-us” />

</Product>

<Product ID=”VisioProRetail”>

<Language ID=”en-us” />

</Product>

</Add>

<Updates Enabled=”True” UpdatePath=”\\server\share\folder”

</Configuration>

This will force Office to update from your on-premises location.
