Install/Update errors using the latest version of the Office Deployment Tool 16.0.7118.5775


Issue: After the recent release of the Office Deployment Tool version 16.0.7118.5775 users are seeing issues with installs/updates due to not having the V32.cab data file come down with the source files download.

Errors seen are 30029.1011 and a few other issues all stemming from the missing v32.cab file.

NOTE: Microsoft is aware of this issue and working on releasing an updated version of the Office Deployment Tool as soon as possible.

Workaround: The current workaround is to copy, duplicate, and rename the copied v32_16.0.xxxx.xxx.cab to v32.cab (See Below)

 

Step 1: Source file location after the initial download. As stated above you’re missing the v32.cab file.

Step 2: Copy, and then paste the copied version seen below.

Step 3: Then rename the resulting copied V32_versoned.cab to v32.cab to allow Install/Updates to continue as expected.

    If trying to automate the download process, you can add line in a PowerShell script to do this for you.

    Get-ChildItem -Path -File -Filter v32_*.cab | Sort-Object Name -Descending | Select-Object -First 1 | Copy-Item -Destination \v32.cab -Force

      Sorry, some of it got stripped out because of my characters.

      Get-ChildItem -Path PATH -File -Filter v32_*.cab | Sort-Object Name -Descending | Select-Object -First 1 | Copy-Item -Destination PATH\v32.cab -Force
