How to install and register Ultimate Suite for many users in your organization

Please make sure you have downloaded the Business edition of the Ultimate Suite. Only this edition can be deployed via GPO and installed on terminal servers.

The Business Edition zip-file includes:

  • setup.exe – interactive installer
  • excel-ultimate-suite.msi – Windows Installer based deployment package
  • enable-for-current-user.reg – Windows registry file containing the entries required for per-user registration

Deploying mst + msi files via GPO

  1. First of all, put all files that you want to deploy in the same shared folder that you can use as a distribution point.
  2. Create an mst file for excel-ultimate-suite.msi .
  3. To the mst file properties, add two new properties:
    • REGISTRATIONNAME with your License Name that you received in the Ultimate Suite registration message.
    • REGISTRATIONKEY with your License Key that you received in the Ultimate Suite registration message.
  4. Deploy the above msi file with the created mst file.
Tip. You can check your deployment locally with the following command:
msiexec /i excel-ultimate-suite.msi TRANSFORMS=<your_mst_file_here.mst>

Deploying with a logon script

  1. Put all files that you want to deploy in the same shared folder that you can use as a distribution point.
  2. Using the Group Policy Editor, create a new logon script and include the following command in it: msiexec /i "\\<UNC path to excel-ultimate-suite.msi>" /quiet REGISTRATIONNAME="Fox Mulder" REGISTRATIONKEY="ERLS7-XXXXX-4KXE6-XXXXX-TM6SP-XXXXX".

    Where:
    • REGISTRATIONNAME is the License Name you received in the Ultimate Suite registration message.
    • REGISTRATIONKEY is the License Key you received in the Ultimate Suite registration message.

How to install Ultimate Suite on a terminal server

  1. Run setup.exe and select "Setup for all users" during installation. This will install the Ultimate Suite on your terminal server, but won't register it.
  2. Open enable-for-current-user.reg and fill RegistrationName and ProductKey with the License Name and License Key you received in the Ultimate Suite registration message.
  3. Use enable-for-current-user.reg to create a Group Policy object or logon script to register the Ultimate Suite.
