  • Customize OCT to display the installation progress
    1 Posts | Last post June 03, 2018
    • I have use the silent installation to deploy MS Office 2016 but unfortunately, most of our users come across issue with incomplete installation ( They got both MS office 2013 and Ms Office 2016 component likes both Lync 2013 & Skype for business).
      I believe this is because during installation, users is using that office component that make it not totally upgrade to new version. Therefore, I would like to make users is aware during deployment and the installation is visible to user during installation.
      I think this is related to Display Level setting when set for OCT.I have change it to use Basic with Supress Modal + No cancelation checked but it failed as its still install without any progress indicator.
      Can everyone here help me with that, what I want now is to auto deployment to users but more similar like manual installation that users is aware there is installation is going on and stop of using all MS office component for a while until its complete installation. 
      FYI, I have also choose Full Feature with Supress Modal checked and as I monitored at Software Center, its does do the download but its stuck at that point without proceed to install and visible the installation progress bar.
      I'm new with SCCM and this is first time that the silent installation is not go as for our plan.Can anyone help me with this issue.

    • unable to deploy office 2016 with SCCM after enabling KMS
      I had customize office 2016  whit OCT first I choose MAK and I Save the MSP file and deploy with SCCM and it was working good but I when lunching office 2016 on the client for the first time I had the activating window to activate office ether through the Internet of by phone and when I click next I goes fine 
      However, after I get KMS, it was set on a machine that had window 7, I test it by installing office 2016 manually on a test machine, and it was activated with any windows ask me to activate office
      And so I modify my MSP file choose the KMS and when a redeploy office which SCCM it won’t work even when I retina it back to use MAK it won’t deploy so is there any parameter should it be add to the MSP file if I choose KMS
