    Most likely its because your installed office is not based on the ClickToRun.
    Which source you used to install office?

    I honestly don't know, it has been initially installed by someone else. I can't even find it in the list of the programms installed in the control panel. Maybe I should just re-install it?

    Two guesses are correct, even though i only tested the second

    culture language is only used by OfficeClickToRun/OfficeC2RClient UI
    not only during installtion, but also later for updates, repair, uninstall.. etc

    it's possible to have different languages for client UI and actual Office UI, but that's not reasonable for single language Office :)

    I have a very limited daily data-cap, so I'm unable to download Office at one go. Can someone advise which is the best tool - robustness and reliability - to pause and resume download? Thanks

    wget is simple but will do exactly what you are looking for: pause/stop/resume with -c switch

    I assume you are referring to Office 365...? or Office 2019 Pro Plus...?
    If so, Microsoft has extensive information here for you that will explain how to use the Office Deployment Tool as well as customizing the XML Configuration files for both downloading and installation of Office 365 Pro Plus, Office 2019 Pro Plus, Visio Pro 2019 and Project Pro 2019.
    I can't post links right now because I'm new here, but do an Internet Search for "Deployment guide for Office 365 ProPlus" and you should see the Microsoft guide near the top of the search results...
    Hope this helps... There's also a couple of good YouTube videos on how to install these as well... so far I haven't been able to get any Update Channel for O365 activated in a VM Lab environment, however, it works for Office 2019 products...

    I forgot to mention that the Office Pro Plus 2019 + Visio Pro 2019 + Project Pro 2019 is only a 1.87 GB download.
    The Office 365x64 with Visio and Project is 2.42 GB.
    You can use any computer to run the download, so if you have a laptop, just hop onto a free public wi-fi and run the download with the Setup.exe and the configuration-Office2019Enterprise.xml file that you'll get by running the Office Deployment Tool which is only a 3MB file.

    Why is not it used to download Start-BitsTransfer (powershell) or curl?
    Both are default in Windows 10.

    It's not a downloader :)
    i was going to add curl output, but its switches are too variant and not easy

    i will see about BITS next version

    Hi everyone,

    I followed the guide which basically:
    Install Office 365 Pro Plus
    Convert to Mondo 2016
    Activate
    Change license (-VMFTK), there is error, fix, then reapply the key. Now it worked.
    Reopen office, I saw the new Ribbon UI

    In words, there is this line focus, powerpoint there is morph including animated 3d objects, but then I am still missing the dynamic array functions in excel, such as FILTER, UNIQUE, SORTBY

    Unfortunately, the excel function is what I want the most.

    Can anyone confirm the availability of dynamic array functions?

    Thank you.
