Does anyone have a PowerShell script to add monthly .msp files to an Office 2016 msi install to keep it up to date? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In the support article below, Microsoft says we need to add the new .msp files each month to keep our Office install current.

    I'm looking for a way to automate that with PowerShell.

    We're using Configuration Manager to deploy monthly patches, but new installs take a while to get caught up.

    Each month, after patches have deployed to a workstation, I am using the changed files in C:\Windows\ccmcache to extract the new .msp files, but I have to manually get just the ones related to Office and copy them to the updates folder on the Office install file share.

    Any input on how others are handling this is welcome!

    Quote from the article: “The following information provides a list of the most current .msp files that IT professionals need to include when they create an installation image for an Office 2016 product, including Visio 2016 and Project 2016. By including these .msp files, when their users install the Office 2016 product, the most current security and non-security updates are automatically applied to the Office installation”.
