Step by Step Guide to deploy Visio 2013 using SCCM

This post is a Step by Step Guide to deploy Visio 2013 using SCCM. In my previous posts we have seen office 2010 , office 2013 and office 2016 deployment using Configuration Manager. This post explains how to deploy Visio 2013 using SCCM. Visio 2013 for Windows is available in two editions: Standard and Professional. The Standard and Professional editions share the same interface, but the Premium edition has additional templates for more advanced diagrams and layouts, as well as capabilities intended to make it easy for users to connect their diagrams to data sources and to display their data graphically. In this example, I have got Visio 2013 Standard edition (32-bit) with me as part of a volume licensing agreement.

Deployment Info – If you want to customize the Visio 2013 and then deploy it then you could run ‘setup.exe /admin’ that will launch the Office Customization Tool. At the end it creates a MSP file that you can later use by running ‘setup.exe /adminfile file.MSP’. If you are new and have no idea about using OCT for Office 2013, it is shown here.

You can also use the Config.xml file to configure installation tasks and use it only when you run Setup. Config.xml is not installed or cached on users computers. Administrators can edit the Config.xml file to customize the installation. By default, the Config.xml file that is stored in the core product folder, core_product_folder_name.WW, directs Setup to install that product.

Note – If 64-bit version of Office is installed on a computer, you cannot install office 32-bit version of Visio. And if 32-bit version of Office is installed on a computer, you cannot install 64-bit version of Visio. You could read choose between the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Office.
