    System: Windows 10 1709 Professional (x64)
    Office Pro Plus 2016 (x64)

    I try to update Office 2016 using DISM, but cannot make it work. I am using .cab update file

    What i did:
    1. Used link from WUMT to download the cab file (cannot post the link - forum rules)

    2. Renamed the cab file to ABC.cab (for testing) and put it inside C drive "c:\ABC.cab"

    3. Run cmd as admin

    4. dism /online /add-package /packagepath:c:ABC.cab
    dism /online /add-package /packagepath:c:\ABC.cab
    dism /online /add-package /packagepath:"c:\ABC.cab"
    All of them give error

    The reason i want to use DISM method is I want to update Office 2016 on computer which doesn't have internet access

    Do i make something wrong on DISM syntax or Is there any other method.
    If DISM can work, then is it possible to update all the update-files by putting in one folder and used only one dism command.

    I am not mounting anything at all. I just installed Office 2016 and found so many updates on Windows Update. So i decided to download each update file and install it using DISM. The same i want to do it to my other computer which do not have internet access.

    I am not sure whether my DISM command is right or wrong. Even i am not sure it is possible or not using dism /online ... to update on online system

    Yes..i guess Office does not use dism..:). I am very new to DISM..
    Is there any easy method to update Office (provided I have all the update files). I am sick of installing one by one

    You can use DISM for Office only if you are deploying Store version Office appx.
