Office 2016 ODT Office Deployment Toolkit error code 0-1008 (0)
I have been working on the topic of Office 365 Deployment Toolkit lately and have encountered an interesting error. Office 2016 ODT Office Deployment Toolkit error code 0-1008 (0).
The Office 2016 installation was stored locally on a share to which administrative users have access. Not all Office products should be installed. The download was done as described in the article by MS (see link) “setup.exe / download downloadconfig.xml”
The installation of Office 2016 starts normally after the desired adjustments in the config XML file and breaks however relatively quickly with an error code 0-1008 (0).
First of all I checked the download and downloaded again. -> unfortunately this was not the fault
I found an entry in the internet see link
This then took me to the right track:
In short, it was due to a quotation mark, which was coded differently.
Have a look on the screenshot
Presumably, the “wrong” quotes came from copying from the Internet. Otherwise, of course, the coding must be observed, I recommend Notepad ++ for that. With this tool you can also compare files and find the differences if necessary. The error is already clear only on the basis of the syntax highlighting.

Hope I could put a little light in the dark
Looking forward to comments / questions.
