few weeks ago we release PEBuilder 18.104.22.168 this was to fix an issue that

compiling PEBuilder we made a typo that recreated the issue instead of fixing
the issue we have corrected that in PEBuilder 22.214.171.124 and brought you a few

configurations to choose from to help make the build process smother but don't

we added is the ability to export and import your settings so that you can now
save all the configuration changes you have made to be used later.

1. The first thing you want to do is download the Office Deployment Tool. Once you install the Tool you will find a setup.exe file and a configuration.xml.
2. The configuration file controls what will be installed and what will be downloaded. For example if the download switch is used with the configuration file below then Office 365 ProPlus x32 and VisioPro x32 will be downloaded. If you use that same configuration file with the configure switch then ProPlus x32 and VisioPro x32 will be installed from \\Server\Share with the EULA accepted and only the p…
