Deploy Office 2019 using SCCM through OSD
Mainly an intune guy but have been asked to work with MECM/SCCM recently and unsure of how to do this.
As part of a new Windows 10 build, I am creating for a customer I need to also factor in some applications to be installed at build including Office 2019 and other ‘core’ apps.
I am assuming I need to either create a new application. What is the Office 365 client management feature which is found in software library, is this purely just to monitor office installs? I assume this isnt for Office 2019 though?
In terms of other applications, I have been provided applications which are in an exe format rather than msi, I am aware msi is a simpler approach but is there a way I can create packages using exes or do I need to covert these to msi for them to be used in MECM?
My plan is to create a OSD task sequence which will include all the applications to be installed at build. Would this be the right approach is there a better way? All applications need to be installed on all devices.
Sorry about some of the basic questions, this is probably easy stuff for an experienced member but for a newbie its a bit worrying!
