The last couple months I've been working with Citrix VDA and RDS servers. I've had to install office via Click to Run. The overall process is pretty straight forward but I did run into a little bit of a snag on confirming the exact Product ID I needed for my installation. The link below has the exact Product ID's for each version you may need.
The install process
The first step is to create a directory on the system/server. I normally create a folder called c:\support\365
Next you'll need to download the Office Deployment Tool extract the files to the folder you recently created- c:\support\365
Then open a command prompt window, change into the c:\support\365 directory and execute the following command-
This will download the Office software to the folder.
After this is complete, you can install by executing the following command which uses a configuration file- configuration.xml. I included a sample of the one I've been using for reference.
setup.exe /configure configuration.xml
Executing this command will begin the Office installation process.
Sample of my configuration.xml file-
