Scheduled Offline Updates - Include Microsoft Office
We find the Scheduled Updates option incredibly helpful, however not being able to include Office Updates means we still require the occasional build and capture to include those updates in the WIM. Could the inclusion of Office Updates within Scheduled Updates be a possibility?

This isn't possible. Scheduled Updates/Offline Servicing utilizes DISM from the ADK to inject updates. DISM only supports injecting CBS updates which are usually only actual OS updates. Application updates including Office updates will not work. For example you cannot also inject Internet Explorer version upgrades into an image (the IE version update may "inject" but it would not actually install).
The problem I have with that is that even with a BnC, when deploying the computer, I still have 30 patch that were installed during BnC... Most of them Office. very annoying

Wish I could give this more than 3 votes. Biggest hassle when you finish imaging a machine and its missing 90+ updates and they are all office related.

Really surprised this hasn't gotten more votes.
