048206 - How to prevent Excel/Word addins from installing on a terminal server

Problem

Installing Historian Client on a Citrix Server. Would like to have the Historian Client installed, which installs the software for everyone, but do not want every user to have the Office addins. How can this be prevented?

Solution

The only way I know of to prevent this is to install Historian Client first, then Office afterwards. This will cause the addins to fail during installation. If Office is already installed, it will probably be easier to do the install, then try to have Office remove the addin for all users. I am unsure how to do this, but user will investigate from here.
