Purpose: Downloads and installs the latest available Microsoft
product specified directly on the client. This avoids having to
manually download and store an up-to-date installer on a
distribution server every month.
Instructions: Update the linkID value to one of the corresponding
Microsoft products in the list and optionally update the sha256Checksum
value with a known SHA 256 string. Run the script with elevated
privileges. If using Jamf Pro, consider replacing the linkID and
sha256Checksum values with "$4" and "$5", entering the ID as script
parameters in a policy.
