Getting Started with Microsoft Office 2013 Deployment Welcome to the Getting Started with Microsoft Office 2013 Deployment lesson. In this lesson, I want to start out with the different versions of Office 2013, mainly because we have a new type of setup program. Then you need to be aware of what the 2013 system requirements are before you install Office. We'll discuss what our business scenario is, and therefore, our goals. And last, I'll show you how my lab is set up in case you'd like to set yours up to be the same. The versions, we have two. Now the Windows Installer-based good old MSI files, we've had those forever. It's the same way we deployed Office 2007 and 2010. What's new is the Click-to-Run technology. Now this is a new setup, and it's all based on streaming and virtualization technology. It makes it a lot faster to download, install, and update your Office products. A good example of one of the Office programs that installs on the Click-to-Run technology is Office 365 Professional Plus.
Deploying Office 2013 via MDT Welcome to Deploying Office 2013 via Microsoft Deployment Toolkit, or MDT. In this lesson, I want to tell you first how I have MDT 2012 Update 1 set up. Then we'll add Office 2013 source files to the MDT's deployment share and deploy Office to the clients. MDT 2012 Update 1. To get that guy ready, if you're not familiar with MDT, you'll need to install the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit, we've done that, install MDT, we've done that, create a deployment share, we've done that, and let me show you what the Deployment Workbench is going to look like.
