Question Which Microsoft Office branch allows you to manually pick components to install?

The standard retail installer (of Office 2016, at least) just installs everything by default (or, at least, what they think should be installed).



However, I know there's a branch or version that uses the "classic" installer, enabling you to choose the components that are installed.

I can't remember what branch it is? LTSB? VL? Enterprise?

Whilst previous versions allowed you to choose which applications to install, in Office 2013 and later you can’t do that; instead they're customized by deleting shortcuts to applications you don't plan to use.

That is absolutely not the case. There's a variant of Office 2016 that uses the older MSI installer, allowing you to choose programs and features before installing.

After further research, it appears there's no longer an MSI variant of Office 2019:

Quote:
For Office 2013 and 2016, various editions containing the client apps were available in both Click-To-Run (inspired by Microsoft App-V) and traditional Windows Installer setup formats. For Office 2019, the client apps only have a Click-to-Run installer and only the server apps have the traditional MSI installer. The Click-To-Run version has a smaller footprint; in case of Microsoft Office 2019 Pro Plus, the product requires 10 GB less than the MSI version of Office 2016 Pro Plus.

That's a shame.
