If I remember correctly, you can use the downloadable Click2Run (C2R) executable from Microsoft which will simply install the bog standard version.

 

However I think if you want to customise it, the only way is using the XML files provided. They can be customised to install the features you want, download updates, etc.

the answer file is by default config.xml but change the name to what you need

 

this cover both office 2010 and also office 2010 the other post what I posted covers newer versions


"Ensure you select all the text below and copy to a word processor. Paste all the code and select "Save As...". Name the file "config.xml" without the quotations. You will need to specify the location of the configuration file by using "setup.exe /config [path to file]". This can also be used in a batch file to simplify this process. More information can be found"

Because most users aren't power-users. They just want to install the application and use them. C2R makes this a pretty seamless process. The options are still there, you can customize the config to your liking, which requires a tad more work than before, but again that is geared towards power users.

And that has been true of C2R since it launched (with Office 2013).  C2R is not new - it dates back to 2013.  Look at merely my first post when I referred to it - and it is not even unique to Office.  It's in practically any product that can be custom-installed - from Office to Visual Studio to *Windows* - in fact, it launched in Office and Windows first..  C2R does not require a giant-economy-sized installer - a floppy-disk will do.  In fact, installers can be e-mailed.  And don't even get me *started* on Azure and C2R.
