RELEASE: Office 2013 Administrative Template files (ADMX/ADML) and Office Customization Tool (OCT) for Volume Licensed customers

imageThe OCT is part of the Setup program and is the recommended tool for most customizations. The OCT is available only with volume licensed versions of Windows Installer-based Office 2013, Office 2010, and the 2007 Office system.

To determine whether an Office 2013 installation is a volume licensed version, check the Office 2013 installation disk to see whether it contains a folder named Admin. If the Admin folder exists, the disk is a volume license edition.

This download includes Group Policy Administrative Template files and Office Customization Tool files for use with Office 2013 applications. It also includes a \Admin folder with an Office Customization Tool, and ADMX and ADML versions of Office 2013 system Administrative Template files. For administrative template files, you may use the combination of ADMX and language-specific ADML files on computers running at least Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008.

If you plan on using the Office Customization Tool (OCT), we recommend reading the Office Customization Tool in Office 2013 documentation beforehand.
