Box for Office

From WPKG | Open Source Software Deployment and Distribution
Jump to: navigation, search

Box for Office is a plug-in for MS Office 2010 and 2013 to allow users to work directly with files on the Box file synchronization service. It does not require the Box Sync client to be installed.

Download the MSI, the remove-obsolete-client script and the remove-all-clients script and place them all in %SOFTWARE%\box\.

Note that although the client requires the Microsoft .NET Framework version 4.0, the package is written for 4.5. Box says it requires Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office 10.0.50701 or newer, but in my limited testing it doesn't seem to be necessary to install it explicitly.

Office should be installed before the Box for Office client, but as WPKG doesn't support depending on any one of two packages, this package does not explicitly depend on any Office packages. Consider having your Office package(s) chain this package.

See the client documentation for additional information.
