    Office 2019 deployment - Issue with taskbar shortcuts

      I created a package to copy Office 2019 to the C drive.

      The package runs the Office Deployment Tool with our custom Configuration.xml file and installs Office 2019.

      The problem I am having is that since it is running as the system account, because the users don't have admin rights, the taskbar shortcuts aren't being pinned.

       

      If any of you are doing Office 2016, 2019 or O365 deployment how are you handling this issue?

       

      The only way I can think of overcoming is to create a separate package/op rule that runs a program as the logged in user to pin the icons to the taskbar.  I suspect this will work but unfortunately will require a lot more hand holding than I would prefer.

       

      Any ideas?

       

      Thanks,
