Upgrade From Local Source

This policy setting enables administrators to allow their users to upgrade to Office 16 using a local source.

If you enable this policy, Office will upgrade from Office 15 to Office 16 (when applicable) using a local copy of Office 16. When you enable the policy, add a local path to the Office 16 files you want installed. For example: "C:\Files\O16Location\"

If you disable or do not configure this setting, Office upgrades will continue as usual from either the internet or a configured Distribution Point.

Important: This policy setting only applies to Office 365 clients that are installed by using Click-to-Run, including Office 365 ProPlus, Office 365 Business, Visio Pro for Office 365 and Project Pro for Office 365. It doesn't apply to Office products that use Windows Installer (MSI)

Supported on: At least Windows 7
