Custom Installation Guide

First, you'll need to clear previous installations of Office. You can skip this if Office has never been installed on the machine before:

  • Uninstall Office with the App and Features option in Windows settings.
  • Run OfficeScrubber.cmd file from Office Scrubber by abbodi1406 and select [R] Remove all Licenses option.

Once you're done:

  • Download Office Deployment Tool (ODT)

  • Copy the downloaded setup.exe file to the root of the C drive, i.e. C:\setup.exe

  • Go to

  • If you want Retail Office then select Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise in the office suites section.

  • If you want Volume Office then select Office LTSC Professional Plus 2021 - Volume License in the office suites section. (Don't select the SPLA version)

  • You can add Visio and Project apps if you need them. Don't select language that is not available for Project/Visio if you are installing those apps.

  • Customize other things and leave settings as default if you don't understand something.

  • Once you go through all the options, click on the export button, select "Keep Current Settings" option and it will download a file named Configuration.xml

  • Copy the downloaded Configuration.xml file to the root of the C drive, i.e. C:\Configuration.xml

  • Open the command prompt as admin and run the below commands

    cd /d C:\
    setup.exe /configure Configuration.xml

It will now download and install Office. You can activate it with your preferred method.
