    Yeah. https://github.com/abbodi1406/BatUtil
    Use Git and use Git clone and git pull to keep the batutils updated.
    Go to YAOCTRI folder and your appropriate version CTRIR -> Retail versions of MSO 2016-365 or CTRI -> Volume License or Business version given by your Company/Organization.
    Don't forget to use cmd prompt as admin and provide Root folder of Office cab files for example: If you downloaded the offline cab files to C:\office_install\<your office version>\ ...
    Give Office path as C:\office_install so that it detects proper installation setup files.

    Nice! Thanks for sharing. If I ever decide to install Micro$lop Office again I will give it a go. I am hoping I can learn to live without it, and things are certainly shaping up that way now that I have found alternatives I can live with.

    I use the same apps like you do. YAOCTRI is much faster than MSFT OfficeSetup where I had to wait 5 hrs and waste 4GB of data and setup was still stuck at 1%.
    Grabbed OfficeRTool to download stable LTSB office version and YAOCTRI and within 1 hr everything was setup.

    Add Run in Sandbox Context Menu in Windows 10

    WARNING: You cannot reverse this tweak after doing it. I personally found the context menu entry annoying as I was accidentally clicking it when right clicking and trying to run a program as Administrator


    2020-08-13_200845.png

    After Enabling Sandbox in Programs & Features / Turn Windows Features On or Off

    Reboot

    Make sure the the ZIP file you downloaded is not blocked then extract it:

    It defaults to French language. Edit the .\Sources\Run_in_Sandbox\Sandbox_Config.xml file to use the language code you want, e.g. set en-us for English.

    In that folder, click on File > Open Windows PowerShell > Open Windows PowerShell as Administrator in File Explorer.

    Now, right-click on some executable file. You'll see the Run in Sandbox entry

    The better idea is to disable it completely.... http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...nd-announcements.826887/page-64#post-11037741
