HOWTO: Use the Office Deployment Tool to install volume licensed versions of Project 2016 & Visio 2016

imageLooks like we automated the process of deploying the perpetual click-to-run versions of Visio 2016 & Project 2016 for IT organizations using Office Deployment Tool:

Usually you deploy volume licensed versions of Project 2016 and Visio 2016 by using the Windows Installer (MSI) installation technology. But that won’t work if you’re trying to install volume licensed versions of Project 2016 and Visio 2016 on the same computer as Office 365 ProPlus. That’s because Office 365 ProPlus uses Click-to-Run as its installation technology, and in this case, having MSI and Click-to-Run installations on the same computer isn’t supported.

To help you deploy volume licensed versions of Project 2016 and Visio 2016 on the same computer as Office 365 ProPlus, we’ve provided an alternative installation method: you can use the Office Deployment Tool to do the installation of Project and Visio. The Office Deployment Tool uses Click-to-Run to do the installation, instead of using Windows Installer (MSI). But, Project and Visio are still activated by volume activation methods, such as Key Management Service (KMS) or Multiple Activation Key (MAK).

To begin, download the most current version of the Office Deployment Tool from the Microsoft Download Center. Then, edit the Product element in the configuration.xml file, using the appropriate ID from the following table. To use a Generic Volume License Key (GVLK) for volume activation with KMS, use the appropriate value in the table for the PIDKEY attribute.

This probably compliments the post I’d originally written on this:
