Perform a Customized Install of Office 2019 Programs on Azure VM Desktop

While it is straight forward to install the entire Office 2019 Suite using a downloaded ISO file to a PC desktop, this is how to install only select programs of the Office 2019 Suite.

Office 2019, like Office 2016, is a Click-To-Run installation process, with no customization allowed on a basic install. All of the programs in the Office 2019 Suite are installed – including Publisher, Access, Skype for Business etc. Once the installation is complete, the extra unnecessary programs cannot be uninstalled, since the option is no longer available in the Control Panel using the ‘Change’ option. Change is not active – it reverts to only giving the Repair options now.
