Already almost a year ago our organisation made the decision to switch to Office 2019.
For now we ware able to convince management to stay on 2016 for VDI, but not any more. We need to switch to Office 2019 on VDI to!
What's the status on Office 2019 for VDI and more specifically on AppVolumes? We need to switch or drop VMware VDI all together and switch to other sollutions.
Why not just install office in the base image. You won't get a forward looking statement from VMware here in most cases(I don't work for VMware) so I'm not sure someone will directly answer your question. I have seen though in general when office doesn't work in appvolumes it at least works if you install it in the parent image so it bypasses appvolumes all together.
Agreed on that, I figure that something like Office fits easily into the 80/20 rule where [at least] 80% of people will be using office you may as well include it in the template. Especially for something that hooks into the OS like that.
Can confirm all seems to be working including Visio.
issue i have currently it’s taking a long time to open Visio not responding
also my VM 4vcpu and 16gig ram on windows 10 1809 was getting smashed so will keep working on it.
