    No, John. Just uninstall and reinstall (or, you may be able to just reinstall over what's left) and you should get your 126 days back. This is some kind of bug in the Public Preview of Office 365.

    Build 10158 took my subscription Office 365 totally out to the point it wasn't even useable, but when I told it to reinstall, everything went back to normal.
    I installed Office 2016, not Office 365. Besides, it went back to Office 2013 Pro with no hassles. There wasn't anything that I used differently in 2016, so except for look and feel, no big deal to go back. I won't buy Office 2016 unless MS gives me a deal for upgrading.

    My office installation went back to expiring on July 30th. Gonna try a repair install.

    EDIT: Reinstalled over top and re-entered product key. 149 days now!

    Yeppers! Mine did too, although it's a subscription.

    I'm a happy camper now, Office 2016 installed without any issues. I have had incredible issues to get the Click-to-Run installer to work in every previous build and had already given up using Office 2013 instead, but in 10158 now it went smoothly and in a couple of minutes the Office 2016 was installed

    Kari,

    I don't suppose you've tried installing Office while in Audit Mode (and therefore save the installation for future use and avoid downloading again)? Or does the Click-to-Run mess that up?

    Since 9879, the Sysprep has been more or less "broken". As the CopyProfile=True has not been working, I have seen no point in installing the software in Audit Mode. Now most of the bugs in Sysprep have been fixed and the future looks promising, I've now getting 100% success rate when sysprepping 10159 on vm ( about 20 tries) and two of three sysprep runs on real hardware have worked (give me a break, I've only had this build a day or so ).

    That's the process I will do when I can be sure everything in Audit Mode and Syspre work as expected, installing Office in Audit Mode I mean.

    Keep getting message about Outlook is not my default email program. Please open Office Outlook and make it default program. I have done that and have ensured it is default in my Program Default list. Still get this error message....

    That's the third one I've seen so far connected with Office. I saw that Outlook couldn't start because . . . then there was the one that asked for credentials over and over and over, and now this.

    Try a repair and if that doesn't work, do a reinstall. Reinstall is what worked for me.

    Guys, if you are or will be using the Windows Mail app, too, set it up first with all accounts you need. Only when it is set up and it has set the defaults, set up Outlook 2016. It will (should) now take over the defaults and work properly.

Hi there I think this comment is allowed - there is an NDA but I think this is OK. The latest update installs OFFICE 2016 just fine and works OK. Office 2010 is left untouched so you can run BOTH concurrently. OUTLOOK 2016 though uses the same...
