Can I use this tool to install office 2013/2016/2019 but force it to use the setup files which already exist on the disk or on a mounted img/iso?
Afaik, Ratiborus' tools (guessing it's his tool) are not really supported on MDL.
I updated 10 (Windows 10 Pro X64 incl Office 2019 en-US APRIL 2020: generation2). Unfortunately, after some odd weeks, it messed up. I downloaded another file (Windows 10 Professional x64 include Office 2019 Professional Plus x64 / ACTIVATED: New Horizon) to replace it. In order to install it, I have to use Rufus. No problem; so I thought. After I added that file (Windows 10 Professional x64 include Office 2019 Professional Plus x64 / ACTIVATED: New Horizon) and stared it, an error presented itself: "Error: Access to the device is denied." I've used to use Rufus numerous times with success. What can I do it relieve my frustration???
Use an officially released windows ISO instead of badly homebrew stuff.
Oh, ok then.
Is there an MDL tool (or preferably script) that installs Office 2019 on Windows 7?
For activation, I haven't tested it yet, but I presume this would work: "Office 2016 Manual Online KMS Activation VIA Command Prompt" found here: https://forums.mydigitallife.net/th...-volume-license-iso-original-from-vlsc.65644/
A long while ago I tried to install Windows 7 using a USB. Tried many tools to write an ISO as a bootable USB media, but the only one that worked fine was Microsoft's own "Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool". Despite its name, it does write an ISO file as a bootable media on USB. Maybe that could work for Windows 10 installation as well. (supposing that that is the problem)
It worked; however I have other problems. It seems I forgot that the only way to update 10 is going loading into 10 and then using the updating version. I did so; however in doing so, my machine causes a loop (most likely because I deleted Office). Thank God I was able to get back into the old version of 10. The only reason I need the updated version is it includes Office 2019. I had Office 2019; but Outlook screwed up. I had a brain fart and instead of going into programs, go into Office 2019 and repairing it, I deleted it and tried to install the downloaded file... What an idiot!!! What am I supposed to do now??? Please don't tell me I have to start a new version of 10 and lose the my downloaded files...
That script will connect you to questionable public KMS servers, i don't know why that info is still there, in the past that was not allowed here, or at least not advised to use.
Better to either run your own private KMS server or just use the best local KMS activator, ever KMS_VL_ALL
In particular, I am updating wotok_mdl.cmd to allow installations on Windows 7.
The installation of Office on Windows is conducted by files from a cabinet file (i640.cab - win64 or i320.cab - win32) that has the C2R executables.
So, I download these two cabinet files from the latest version of Office 2019 compatible with Windows 7 (in this case, version 16.0.12621.20002) and get the rest of the files from the latest available version of Office 2019.
My modifications in wotok_mdl, currently, make this combination and it works perfectly.
Since the wotok_mdl.cmd feature to activate Windows digitally has been removed by the MDL rules, I replaced this option (in the case "/") to enable or disable downloads of the C2R installer that works with Windows 7 (see attached image).
That way, I can download pure versions of Office 2019 with the original C2R (which will not be installed on Windows 7) or versions with the C2R installer that works on Win7.
The C2R version compatible with Win7 can be changed by editing the oldCompatVrs and oldCompatId parameters in the wotok_mdl file.
Attached is the wotok_mdl.cmd that I'm using and it's working like a charm for me on Win7.
I always download the Dogfood version of Office 2019 (ID EA4A4090-DE26-49D7-93C1-91BFF9E53FC3).
Note that, in addition, this cmd file allows you to choose whether or not to pin office icons to the taskbar (Windows versions below Win10)
Another detail is that, during the installation, the C2R files are completely replaced (including the service), to ensure that the chosen Office installer can install Office.
EDIT: Installed now the new version of Office 2019 (16.0.12927.20002). Attached Image2
EDIT: Updated Script (add option to exclude bing search in excludedApps)
Now it is too late, but it would have saved you a lot of time and grief if you had a backup of the system before starting out those changes. I am getting used to Macrium Reflect, but I am still using Acronis True Image 2014 (yep, 2014, I did not like the latest versions).
I'd say there have been too many changes, if you got it back, it would be a Frankenstein. I would format and start again. Maybe you could slipstream updates on Windows 10, and make it smaller that way. Over time my Windows 7 would bloat because of so many updates. But what you may really lose are only the configurations of the installed software. Of course you can save the really important files, such as Outlook's pst file, the documents, and some %appdata% files as well. But, this time, make a backup of the system, as it is now, and then format it. That way, if you missed something, you can still get it back. And while you build it up again, create incremental backups along the way. It may sound a lot of work or dreadful, but it pays once it's done.
Thanks for that. So there is this preference for a local activation then. My initial impulse was going for the online servers. Well, that kms script worked fine, thanks for the tip.
