I've installed Office 2016 Home and but chose (at that time) not to install Outlook. Now I needed and cannot install it, as I don't get a selection dialog.

I ran the SetupProd_OffScrub.exe program and reinstalled but it just installed everything as it was before, without asking, e.g. no Outlook.

I downloaded the .img file, created a customized xml installation:

<Configuration>
    <Add SourcePath="D:\Office\" OfficeClientEdition="64">
        <Product ID="ProPlusRetail">
            <Language ID="en-us" />
        </Product>
    </Add>
</Configuration>

but this fails with various errors, such as:

The .img file is mounted in D:, but setup.exe is ran from another location, not sure if that's an issue.

So I'm asking if there's any way to either reinstall Office 2016 and get the selection dialog or just be able to install individual components on top.

Make sure you have documents backed up, uninstall Office, restart and then install the complete package and update it.

The Microsoft Article I posted is very complete. Office (since 2013) is a single package so just install all of it.

Ok, this was pretty silly, but Office 2016 Home and Student does not contain Outlook. It only has Word, Excel, Powerpoint and OneNote.

However, for people looking on how to customize this installation and not get any errors, the following configuration.xml file allows ODT customization:

<Configuration>
    <Add SourcePath="D:\" OfficeClientEdition="32">
        <Product ID="HomeStudentRetail">
            <Language ID="en-us" />
            <Logging Level="Standard" Path="%temp%" />
            <ExcludeApp ID="Excel" />
            <ExcludeApp ID="OneNote" />
            <ExcludeApp ID="PowerPoint" />
            <ExcludeApp ID="Word">
        </Product>
    </Add>
</Configuration>

Note the product id which is HomeStudentRetail.

Figured it out by hacking the old configuration tool from microsoft, since the new one only shows Office 2019:
