Edit the <code>Configuration.xml</code> and add new <code>ExcludeApp ID</code> entries for features you don't want to have installed:</p> <p><a href="" rel="noreferrer"><img src="" alt="Image of the XML file"></a></p> <pre class="lang-html prettyprint-override"><code>&lt;Configuration&gt; &lt;Add SourcePath="E:\Office\" OfficeClientEdition="64"&gt; &lt;Product ID="O365ProPlusRetail"&gt; &lt;Language ID="en-us" /&gt; &lt;ExcludeApp ID="Access" /&gt; &lt;ExcludeApp ID="Excel" /&gt; &lt;ExcludeApp ID="Groove" /&gt; &lt;ExcludeApp ID="InfoPath" /&gt; &lt;ExcludeApp ID="Lync" /&gt; &lt;ExcludeApp ID="OneNote" /&gt; &lt;ExcludeApp ID="PowerPoint" /&gt; &lt;ExcludeApp ID="Project" /&gt; &lt;ExcludeApp ID="Publisher" /&gt; &lt;ExcludeApp ID="SharePointDesigner" /&gt; &lt;ExcludeApp ID="Visio" /&gt; &lt;/Product&gt; &lt;/Add&gt; &lt;/Configuration&gt; </code></pre> <p>Now run <code>setup.exe /download configuration.xml</code> to only download the requested features and install the customized office with <code>setup.exe /configure configuration.xml</code></p> 1 Answer by Rowan Hawkins for Office 2016 Advanced Setup Rowan Hawkins 2017-08-10T16:16:15Z 2017-08-10T16:16:15Z <p>I was originally going to add this as a comment to the excellent answer from @magicandre1981, however I couldn't get the comment to format in a readable state. </p> <p>Please up vote the comments from @hennes and @MetroSmurf on that answer because those people found this info first and deserve recognition of that.</p> <p>Once you download the config tool and build your custom-configuration.xml (I suggest renaming it so you know which config you are installing) </p> <p>To have it work with the MSDN Media:</p> <ol> <li>Make sure your config doesn't have a path set.</li> <li>Ensure your product ID is as follows: <code>&lt;Product ID="ProPlusRetail" PIDKEY="xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx"&gt;</code></li> <li>Suggest you also add <code>&lt;Display AcceptEULA="TRUE"&gt;</code></li> <li>Extract the media to a folder (I used <code>Office2016</code>)</li> <li><p>In <code>Office2016</code> replace default <code>setup.exe</code> (400KB) with the deployment tool provided <code>setup.exe</code> (4.1MB)</p></li> <li><p>Put your custom-configuration.xml in <code>Office2016</code> as well.</p></li> <li><p>From an Administrative command prompt cd to <code>Office2016</code> </p></li> <li><p>run <code>setup /configure custom-configfile.xml</code></p></li> <li><p>Profit.</p></li> </ol>
