[How To] Disable Office 2013 First Run registry tweak, plus config.xml

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this tweak has been posted before since it's a bit different from the one of Office 2010, I saw this tweak from Office 2013 Administrative Templates(admx) days ago.

For Office 2013

; Disable Office First Run
; Disable First Run movie

; Disable First Run Opt-in Wizard

;Trust Center - Privacy Options - "Sign up for the Customer Experience Improvemet Program" - Disabled

For Office 2010

; Disable First Run Opt-in Wizard

;Trust Center - Privacy Options - "Sign up for the Customer Experience Improvemet Program" - Disabled

Personally I prefer using config.xml for Office 2013 deployment to the method of using OCT, due to its scriptable and fast-editing capability, here's the sample of config.xml for those who are intereted.

To invoke, navigate to Office install source and run

setup.exe /config config.xml

As for me, a batch is used to implement multi-architecture deployment based on computer name.

CD /D "%~dp032bit"
IF /I %PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE% == amd64 CD /D "%~dp064bit"
setup.exe /config "%~dp0%COMPUTERNAME%.xml"
