Here is the new Office Click-To-Run Configuration XML Editor. It make the configuration and deployment simple and easy.
Administrators can modify the Configuration.xml file to configure installation options for Click-to-Run for Office 365 products using this tool.
The Click-to-Run Configuration.xml file is a necessary component of the Office Deployment Tool. Click-to-Run customizations are performed primarily by starting the Office Deployment Tool and providing a custom Configuration.xml file. The Office Deployment Tool performs the tasks that are specified by using the optional properties in the configuration file.
Great post by John Vintzel (ExEDS GM Account) on adding a cust Security Role into Configuration Manager. By default there is no built-in security role (apart from Full Administrator) to import devices into CM.
Here are the steps required:
- Create XML file with the code at the bottom of the page
- Navigate to Administration > Security > Security Roles in the CM Console
- Select Import Security Role from the ribbon
- Browse to the XML, click OK
- You will now see a new custom security role ‘Computer Import Manager’
<SMS_Role CopiedFromID=”SMS00001″ RoleName=”Import Computer Role” RoleDescription=”Add this role to an administrative user. Associate this security role specifically with All Systems.”>
<Operation GrantedOperations=”129″ ObjectTypeID=”1″ />
<Operation GrantedOperations=”524289″ ObjectTypeID=”6″ />

Quick little note for me to remember the silent install command for the HP Softpaq. No need to extract and search the %Temp% location for the MSI files. Use the the following command to install the Softpaq silently without reboot:
setup.exe /S /v"/qn /norestart"
Had a situation where I needed to modify the Visual Effects, under Performance Options, for a customer.
Create a Registry Item in Group Policy Preference under the User Configuration.
You have a number of options for the data value:
VisualFXSetting=dword:00000000 = Let Windows choose what’s best
VisualFXSetting=dword:00000001 = Adjust for best apperance
VisualFXSetting=dword:00000002 = Adjust for best performance
VisualFXSetting=dword:00000003 = Custom
Add the Apply once option and the end user can modify as required.

Great blog post about a similar issue we were having in production.
Instances where application will not install after a reboot. Even when the logs say they installed correctly. We found this was more likely to happen on devices with SSD compared to SATA drives.
Looks like a know bug, but nothing a sleep command can solve: http://www.bctechnet.com/install-application-step-fails-in-task-sequence/
