Office 2013 setup does not run on windows server core 2016 TP4 (with GUI) ,neither in silent not GUI mode. RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are trying to install office silently on windows server core 2016 TP4. The silent install using config file does not work. 

    Installation without the config file too does not work. 

    The error message is "Setup cannot find or validate and installation file" . 

    The installation both silent and with GUI works on windows server 2016 TP4 (with GUI).

  • Office requires a GUI.  Core lacks it.

    I don't see that this is a Containers issue.  (which would mean it is a Nano issue and they are never going to support a GUI)

    It is a use case that is simply not possible.
