This is an archive related to a previous version of ArcGIS Maps for Office. If you need the current version go to http://doc.arcgis.com/en/maps-for-office/.
Large organizations may not want to deploy the ArcGIS Maps for Office add-in to each computer on their network individually. To support large-scale deployments, ArcGIS Maps for Office includes options for installation from the command line. Automated deployment solutions can be built using these command line options. For example, if your organization wants to use Portal for ArcGIS as the default ArcGIS connection, you can set the CONNECT_TO parameter to your Portal for ArcGIS URL. If you use this setting when you deploy across the organization, all computers will use your Portal for ArcGIS.
Before you begin, be sure that required software is properly installed and configured.
To install from the command line, do the following:
ArcGISMapsForOffice_x86.exe /quiet /msicl "CONNECT_TO=http://www.arcgis.com" /msicl "FALLBACKTOCLOUDRESOURCES=false" /msicl "FORCEINSTALLPREREQ=true" /msicl "CHECKFORSOFTWAREUPGRADE=true" /msicl "FORCEUSERAPPCONFIGUPDATE=true" /msicl "ESRIMAPSWEBROOT=http://la.arcgis.com" /msicl "ESRIMAPSWEBPROXY=/proxy" /msicl "ENABLEUSERFEEDBACK=true"
The command shown above includes all the available configuration options. Some parameters are mandatory; others are optional. If you do not want to change an optional default configuration, you do not need to include it in your command.
Available options are the following:
CONNECT_TO—This parameter is mandatory. The value for this parameter is either http://www.arcgis.com, the URL to your ArcGIS Online organization, or the URL to your Portal for ArcGIS instance. Change this value to point to the appropriate location.
FALLBACKTOCLOUDRESOURCES—This parameter is mandatory. If your organization uses Portal for ArcGIS, the resources must be installed on the same system as the portal. Setting this parameter to true allows users to work with ArcGIS Maps for Office if the resources are not available on your portal and the user has Internet connectivity. The default value is false.
If your organization uses Portal for ArcGISversion 10.2.2 or earlier, or if your portal is behind a firewall, you may need to host the files on a server on your local network. Follow the instructions to configure ArcGIS Maps for Office in a disconnected environment and use this parameter to point to the files on your local network.
If your ArcGIS connection is either http://www.arcgis.com, the URL to your ArcGIS Online organization, or the URL to a Portal for ArcGIS instance version 10.3 or later, it is recommended that you use the default parameter value (do not specify this parameter in your command).
