    Office 2016 install on machine with several windows users


    Hi all
    I currently have Office 2010 installed on a machine that has 3 users configured. One license, one product key, no problem.
    Now I am looking to upgrade to Office 2016 (I don't like the subscription model of Office 365). I have found a lot of confusing information in various forums on the activation of Office 2016. From what I have read, it seems that the one product key per machine (for several users) installation is not supported any more in Office 2016. Can someone clarify what the situation really is? What is the best / recommended way to install Office 2016 on a machine with three users? I am a private individual, not a company.

    Thanks a lot

    :)

    Office 2016 Professional will not complete installation


    I launched Task Mgr and watched for wusa.exe under Processes. IF it started during install, I killed it. The install completed.

    Office 2016 Professional will not complete installation


    Searched the forums but did not come up with this problem being posted here yet. so apologies if I missed it am repeating this.

    I have a Windows 10 on my computer and recently acquired a copy of Office 2016 Professional through Hubby's work for a discount. However We have been trying for 3 days now to install it and it will not complete the installation. The most common problem being that it hangs at 90% and just sits there and won't progress any further even after being left over night.

    I have tried posting this problem on the Microsoft Community boards but they have been less than helpful in finding a solution. Of the things they have suggested, I tried them all but to no avail. The suggestions they gave that I have tried are as follows:

    "Follow these steps and download Office 2016 again:
    • First, check the type of internet connection you are using (Wired or Wireless)?
    • If you are using a wireless connection then you may try to hardwire the connection.
    Try downloading Office 2016 now and check if you are able to install Office 2016 normally.
    In case the above step still does not work then follow these steps.

    • Stop the Print Spooler service from Services.msc.
    • Disable the Anti-Virus/Security Software for a while, until you complete installing Office 2016.
    Check if you are able to install Office 2016 now."

    Nope didn't work, and my computer ishardwired. Next advice they gave was as follows and also didn't work:

    "In Task Manager make sure there are no Office 2016 or Office tasks running. Then restart the computer and try installing Office 2016 again, making sure that there are no Office tasks are running in Task Manager prior to running the Office 2016 installation.

    Check the above and let us know if it helps."

    Nope, still notta.

    While it is hanging at 90% I have checked my task manager and all the columns (CPU, Memory, Disk, Network) were all sitting at 0.

    Funny thing is Hubby was able to acquire a second copy via coworker and it installed completely fine without issue on our windows 7 laptop.

    We do not have any other copies of Office or any office related program on this computer, nor has there ever been. We have uninstalled, rebooted and tried reinstalling several times all with the same result of getting stuck at 90% then going nowhere. We even tried the 32 bit version in hope that it would work because the 64 bit version wouldn't install, but 32 or 64, it's the same problem.

    There was ONE time, and one time only, though, I couldn't tell you what, if anything, we did differently, that it got past 90% and came up with an error message saying some items couldn't be installed because of some reason (I failed to take note of it at the time and it hasn't recurred since) and gave me the option to retry installing those items (it didn't list what they were) or ignore. So I clicked retry, and after a several minutes of it trying again the same message popped up. I believe I tried retry three more times before finally clicking ignore and being told that if I ignored it that I may have to go into program and setting later to repair office because some feature may not work right.

    At that point Office SEEMED to work...until I rebooted the computer. At that point I got a pop-up message (which I again failed to take note of) with an error saying I need to run the installer again because it didn't install or finish installing or something of that nature. So I ran the installer again. this time it hung at 1% and didn't move even after hours of letting it run.

    So again I uninstalled everything rebooted and started fresh and am now back at the hanging at 90% thing. It's very frustrating. A brand new expensive product that is meant for windows 10 but can't be installed on it? I'm very perplexed.

    Any thoughts on this or what I can try or do?
