Have a customer that has 2 different mail systems that we are migrating into O365.
Current on premise Exchange is 2007 so Outlook 2013 is my limit.

I used the Office Deployment Tool to download a copy of 2013 and then deployed to two test clients. After the install I then used a software account to get Outlook working and both failed to allow Outlook 2013 to open saying I didn't have a product installed.
Only option was to close.
I ended up downloading the client from the internet...which kinda negates the process.

All pointers indicate that the ODT is the one to use.
But how do I deal with the licensing?
Do I have to wait for a KMS time period or did I miss something?

The installer is here...

  <Add SourcePath="\\server\O365-2013\Office-O365ProPlusRetail" OfficeClientEdition="32" >
    <Product ID="O365ProPlusRetail">
      <Language ID="en-us" />
  <Display Level="None" AcceptEULA="TRUE" />
  <Logging Path="C:\ODT" />
  <!--  <Property Name="AUTOACTIVATE" Value="1" />  -->

I have the AutoActivate rem'd out as O365 is set to auto activate anyway.


Specified products will attempt to activate automatically.
If AUTOACTIVATE is set to 1, the specified products will attempt to activate automatically. If AUTOACTIVATE is not set, the user may see the Activation Wizard UI.

Note: Office 365 Click-to-Run products are already set to activate automatically. You must not set AUTOACTIVATE for Office 365 Click-to-Run products. This setting applies only to perpetual retail versions of Click-to-Run products.

Have you tried turning it off and walking away? The next person can fix it!
