    Unable to install Office 2016 Professional Plus 2016 in W10 1607

    Hi there!

    Well, after reseting the PC to factory settings and reinstalled my drivers, I'm encountering a nasty problem... I?m just unable to install office 2016 in Windows 10, just when it's about to finish, stops, reverts all and says there was an error installing the suite...

    I could install this in build 1511, no problems, but here this happens... I tried compatibility modes, using the office cleaning tool, but no avail, I even have all the VC runtimes installed... I'm tryinto install 64 bit version.

    Please guys, any advice on this? I really need office for doing my job!

    Thanks in advance

    Try installing 32bit option - you really do not need 64bit unless doing some mega powerful stuff.

    Tried 32 bit flavour... same error... quite weird...
    Hopefully, seems someone found the problem (Which I found after hours of digging around)
    Microsoft Office 2016 encountered an error during Setup - Microsoft Community

    Seems that preinstalled systems with office leave a folder in Task Scheduler, that leads to this error, once deleted, you can install normaly.

    Sadly, I need the 64bit edition, because the spreadsheets I work on are insanely large...

    Well... I think I'll mark this as solved, this did the trick!

    Thanks for the help!
