Microsoft Office Cookbook

This Chef cookbook installs Microsoft Office 2013 from an ISO.
It is working fine, but is not fully completed. You're welcome to contribute!


This cookbook requires 7-zip to be installed so it can extract the ISO. To ensure this happens this cookbook includes the 7-zip default recipe.

Windows 7
Windows 2008 Server (R2)
Windows 8 (8.1)
Windows 2012 Server (R2)


Set the node['msoffice']['source'] attribute to the download location of the MS Office ISO and add 'visualstudio::default' to your runlist. For example:

By default this cookbook assumes you're installing Microsoft Office 2013 Professional Plus.




  • node['msoffice']['edition'] - MS Office edition to install. Default: professional
  • node['msoffice']['version'] - Choose between '32bit' and '64bit' MS Office edition to install. Default: professional
  • node['msoffice']['pid_key'] - Your MS Office product key. You can leave it undefined or empty to enter key manually later.
  • node['msoffice']['auto_activate'] - Activate MS Office product after installation. Default: false

Attributes per each edition:
* node['msoffice'][<edition>]['package_name'] - The name of the package as it shows in Add/Remove programs. Default is Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013.
* node['msoffice'][<edition>]['filename'] - The name of the ISO file located in the 'source'.
* node['msoffice'][<edition>]['checksum'] - SHA256 checksum of the ISO.



Just wraps over the 'install' recipie.


Installs Microsoft Office 2013 using the included Config.xml. Also ensures 7-zip is installed so the ISO can be extracted. Included by the default recipe.
