    the previous version with the new dll for abodi doesnt have the vlmcd.exe.

    That version had no AV detection

    I can remove those "deprecated files.7z" forever in next release,
    or change ext to 7z66ff so No AV will know what is those files
    test and tell me, so I will able to keep them without getting AV warnings.

    Hi

    There has been quite a lot improvements to the tool which is a plus. However, I'm trying to figure out how to add the check for new builds of office when launching the tool. I have the original one and this option seems to have been removed on the latest version. Any chances to have it added as before?

    Working better now. I see that the issue was that you changed the folder name structure which includes a "v16" now. The older folder structure just started with "16." so that was why the script wasn't detecting them.

    OLD
    Code:
    16.0.14701.20226_en-US_x86_Current
    NEW
    Code:
    en-US_Office_Current_x86_v16.0.14701.20226

    What changes are needed to install to Windows 8.1 using OfficeRTool? I was testing in a Win8.1 VM today and kept getting the "You need Windows 10 to continue" popup.

    Thanks for this very nice Office Tool.
    It took me a bit to figure out how to work with it, but now I'm good and have only 4 standalone Office 2021 apps installed and activated exactly as I wanted to.
    Just one thing I've noticed is that Microsoft Edge Chromium suddenly says that it is managed by your organization.
    Is there any way to fix this ?
    Thanks again for this tool.
