Hi! This appears to have worked, thank you for the help. I have a couple notes for anyone trying to do a custom install: you can download the Office Deployment tool here. Also, make sure to change OfficeClientEdition="32" to OfficeClientEdition="64" if you are on a 64-bit system.

Thank you for the file!

I think you should edit your configuration.xml with 64bits by default (who is in 32 bits nowadays? on w10?). And let a commented line with 32bits so people only have to comment/uncomment.

Same think for word/excel/powerpoint/onenote, add them in the file but commented =)

It will make your file more generic for different installations.

Thanks! I was searching for supported "ExcludeApp ID"s.

Most companies still use an 32-bit Office installation on 64-bit Windows due to compatibility with add-ons, macro's and such.

Download the installer posted by Daniel Taylor. Extract it using something like winrar and copy the setup.exe to the same directory you extracted the downloaded zip with the configuration.xml and install.cmd to. Then run install.cmd.
