    Installing Office 365 over Microsoft Office Pro Plus 2016


    What is the best way to Install Office 365 (Home) over/in place of Microsoft Office Pro Plus 2016?

    When I went from Office 2013 to Office 2016, somehow both editions showed up at the same time when I viewed Office Account - Product activation.

    The more I tried to fix it the more convoluted it became. In desperation, called MS support and one gentlemen there asked to take control of my computer, ran a MS Office uninstaller and installed the new version. It took over an hour, I was most grateful, however I do not want to try this again. (Running Win10 Pro, v 2004 19041.450)

    If I install Office 365, will it be replaced by Microsoft Office since Office 365 has never been used/activated and now replaced? *Huh

    (I will make an image before I start this)

    :)

    Unable to install Microsoft office 2016 professional plus

    I have a similar problem where a Office Professional Plus 2016 32-bit version has failed to install and is still unresolved. Here are my steps and the additional links from Microsoft which may work for you (but which have still not resolved my own problem)

    Office 2016 Installation problem

    Installing on a Windows 10 Desktop 8gm Rm running Office 2010 32-bit.

    Microsoft advised us to first uninstall our old Office 2010 before installing the new Office 2016 program. Our Office 2010 had run well for 6 years, but that is when the installation problem began.

    When trying to install the OFFICE 2016 32-bit package, it quickly stops with the following error:

    When clearing that error, it always shows second error:

    We researched blogs and found this problem to be very common whenever an older Office version was uninstalled prior to installing Office 2016, and we followed all the following suggestions (with full reboots each time).

    1. RAN SFC on drive C: and found no errors.
    2. Ran RUN %ProgramData% and renamed Office.help to Office.Help.Old
    3. Ran the MS Program Install and Uninstall Troubleshooter.
    4. Ran a Clean Boot.
    5. Ran Control Panel - in startup found Windows Installer was on and set for Manual.
    6. Went back to VLSC site 6 more times and downloaded a fresh Office 2016 (32-bit version) in case any files were corrupt, but I still got the same install messages.

    Below are links to Microsoft that have worked for some, but not all, users. I believe Using Windows 10 UNIVSTALL (before) running the Office 2016 ISO file either removes an important registry entry, or inserts one that causes the new install to fail. Hopefully one of these will help you.

    Installing Office 365 over Microsoft Office Pro Plus 2016

    Office 365 subscription changed to MS Office Pro Plus 2016

    After upgrading to 20152.1 my Office 365 has changed to MS Office Pro Plus 2016 and is requiring activation
    If I select Change license option then my valid MS Office 365 license is presented but nothing appears to happen when I select it and click next (it stays as MS Office Pro Plus 2016)
    I have tried both online & offline Office repair
    I have uninstalled Office 365 and reinstalled
    How do I revert to Office 365?
    What has happened?
