Software Deployment Question


Microsoft Office 2016 Professional Plus - Auto Activation

12/23/2015 21385 views
Has anyone had any luck getting MS Office 2016 to automatically activate after a managed deployment?  Using the AUTO_ACTIVATE statement in the .msp worked great for deploying 2010 and 2013, but it appears to be not working when deploying 2016.  I've also tried different variations of command lines using the "Add installations and run programs" portion of the OCT.

Found this guys post and followed it and now the KMS activates when finished.  Make sure you update your admin files prior to building the msp file

What key are you using? I assume KMS, do you have a KMS server?

Office 2016 click to run needs to be packaged using ODT. You need to edit the config.xml which comes along with the ODT.

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

Also for volume license through OCT if you want to activate, the AUTO_ACTIVATE doesn't seem to work. Instead try this.

C:\Windows\System32\cscript.exe "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office16\OSPP.VBS" /ACT

C:\Windows\System32\cscript.exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office16\OSPP.VBS" /ACT

  • We are installing via volume license. I tried a variation of above and didn't have success, but I will try again with the command lines you provided.
