Install only selected MS Office programs

NOTE: Office 2013 and beyond no longer prompts users to select programs or featuers they want to use when installing the Office bundle.

To install only programs that a user wishes to use, the installation program has to be executed with exclusion commands. To do so, a user must take following steps.

  1. Download “Office Deployment Tool”
    1. For Office 2013, click here
    2. For Office 2016, click here
  2. Run the downloaded tool
  3. Verify  creation of the following items
    1. File named “configuration.xml”
    2. File named “setup.exe”
  4. Edit “configuration.xml” with notepad
    1. File content sample:
      <Configuration>
      <Add SourcePath=”E:\Office\” OfficeClientEdition=”64” >
      <Product ID=”O365ProPlusRetail” PIDKEY=”*****-*****-*****-*****-*****“>
      <Language ID=”en-us” />
      <ExcludeApp ID=”Access” />
      <ExcludeApp ID=”Groove” />
      <ExcludeApp ID=”InfoPath” />
      <ExcludeApp ID=”Lync” />
      <ExcludeApp ID=”OneNote” />
      <ExcludeApp ID=”PowerPoint” />
      <ExcludeApp ID=”Publisher” />
      <ExcludeApp ID=”SharePointDesigner” />
      </Product>
      </Add>
      </Configuration>
    2. Command, <Add SourcePath=”E:\Office\” OfficeClientEdition=”64” >, is used to indicate location of the “setup.exe” file created by “Office Deployment Tool” and to indicate whether the Office program being installed is for 32bit or 64bit OS.
    3. Command “PIDKEY=” value should be changed to a product key in place of “*”.
    4. Command, <ExcludeApp ID=”   ” />, is used to exclude installation of a selected program.
    5. List of system names for Office programs:
      Access, Excel, Groove, InfoPath, Lync, OneNote, Outlook, PowerPoint, Project, Publisher, SharePointDesigner, Visio, Word
  5. Save the file.
  6. Run “Command Prompt”, filename “cmd.exe”, as an Administrator
  7. Execute command:
    setup.exe /configure configuration.xml
  8. Exit the Command Prompt.
