    I am far from knowledgeable on this stuff so I just want to be able to install Office 2016 from a USB stick onto a few computers and have it there as a back up. I have keys and am not looking for anything but the USB to work.

    Everywhere I read that I should just be able to mount the .img file and copy the contents to my USB. Well it copies fine but when I run the set up, it brings up the start of the install screen then it disappears and nothing.

    I have tried different images from different sources, different USB sticks and different computers but nothing works.

    I have searched the forum and the net but found nothing on the issue.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I came up with the same during development of O2016RTool.
    Please try the following:
    - Create new subdirectory on USB-Stick (ex. "install")
    - Extract content of *.img to subdirectory "install" ( not to root \ )
    - Run setup.exe from "install"

    Why would this work in subfolder and not in root?

    Only Microsoft can answer this. I faced this situation while running Click2Run setup.exe from Office Deployment Tool.
    Starting from subfolder: OK
    Starting froom root: Window opens, flashes shortly, then closes.

    And this also applies to 2013/2010? Or is just a new feature in 2016?
