Welcome to deployment scenarios. Here we would like to hear from you about how we can better improve:
  • Clean installs
  • Upgrades
  • 2nd Installs (post-install language pack or app additions)
  • Language Pack management
  • Network considerations
  • Servicing (monthly security and quality fixes)



  1. OfficeC2RClient.exe is deprecated, need replacement method

    OfficeC2RClient.exe previously supported parameters like a. change channels or update from CDN. Now this is deprecated, customers must use multiple steps to perform these tasks which previously one step. The ask is to restore support for this approach or provide similar one with PowerShell. Enterprise customers need this feature.

  2. Volume and 365 compatibility

    Deploying volume licenses beside subscription licenses should not require manual configuration. Office installers are already intelligent enough to manage this, they just haven't been configured to.

  5. Add FORCEAPPSHUTDOWN toggle in SCCM Client Settings

    Some customers would like to override default restart behavior workflow by forcing SCCM update process to pass FORCEAPPSHUTDOWN = True. Understandably, its False by default, but IT Pros would like the option to override this default behavior and force apps to close during update when required deadline has passed. This will help meet compliance and regulatory requirements.

  7. Simple ADR for ConfigMgr

    Have the ability to create and ADR using metadata tags instead of parsing the update titles. (for example, give me an option to select channels)
