  1. MS Office Pro Plus 2016 (some updates are not needed)


    I have MS Office Pro Plus 2016 installed and running the most latest version of Win10.
    Whenever I install the Office program, I select Custom, and only installing Outlook, Excel, PowerPoint, and Word.
    That is all I need.

    But when I run Windows Updates for other Microsoft Programs, it appears that it includes all the updates for all Office programs like Skype for Business or Access for example, which I DO NOT use on my PC and I never selected these components.

    Is there a way to have these updates download and install for only the Office components that I had selected during the installation of Office 2016?

    Thanks!

    :)

    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.

    Hi Raymond,

    Thank you for your reply.



    To answer your questions:-

    • Where did you purchase the product key? Is it from a retailer? -- No.
    • Did you get an error message when you open the file? -- No there has never been any error message.
    • When you say "I have checked the files on 2 other computers and they open faultlessly", did you save it to an external drive and opened it to different computers? -- Not exactly. I have local storage on my home network (a Western digital hard
      drive) connected to my router by ethernet cable. The files in question are on this hard drive accessible by 2 other computers (each of which has the same Office suite installed as my laptop).
    • Does the issue happen to specific files? – Difficult to be specific in that so far the screen fault has been present on 5 word files (all calendar documents) and 2 Excel files.


    Just to be clear I do not have Office 365 Home, I have Office pro plus 2016 which, when installed has required a valid key to take off the 30 day ‘timer’. I have noticed no difference in functionality between before entering the key to
    that after the key has been entered. My question remains, therefore, am I correct in stating that (apart from the reminder that a key is required) Office pro plus 2016 functionality does not change as a consequence of entering a valid product key within the
    30 day period?



    Hope this helps clarify matters.

    Office pro plus 2016

    I recently had a new screen fitted on my Lenovo Yoga 3 14 laptop as the touch feature had ceased to function on the original. After the repair I noticed that there was a faulty display when opening certain Word and Excel files which had not been there
    before the repair. I have checked the files on 2 other computers and they open faultlessly. The repairer claimed that I had an invalid product key for the Office suite on my laptop and this was the reason for the fault. I uninstalled the Office suite, reinstalled
    the Office suite, purchased a new key (accepted as valid by Microsoft) and the fault remained I conducted a full online repair of the office suite., and the fault remained. The repairer still claims that the reason for the fault is that I have another invalid
    key. The Office suite is Office pro plus 2016. I Noticed that the screen fault was identical before and after I inputted the product key which leads me to surmise that this is a red herring. Can you confirm that the MS Office suite has the same functionality
    (in the first 30 days) with or without the product key being accepted?
