MS Office 2016 unable to search

Q: MS Office 2016 unable to search

Hello All. I have a client that just got upgraded to 2016 and is unable to use the search feature from within outlook. We have already tried recreating the profile and and rebuilding the ost file. Indexing, repaired outlook. I tried going to windows features
to disable and re-enable windows search but upon clicking on windows features in control panel an error comes up
"The procedure entry point ucrtbase.terminate could not be located in the dynamic link library api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll."
Researching this error brought me to this article: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/entry-point-not-found-error-office2016.html
which we noticed that Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 runtime was not installed and we tried to install vc_redist.x64.exe
But we then get another error stating:
vc_redist.x86.exe
Setup Failed: 0x80240017 Unspecified error
Here are the Log files for that error.

Are there any differences between office 365 home and office 2016 pro when you compared their installations of word, excel, power point and publisher?
For example, is Word from O365 the same as Word in Office 2016? Or does one have more options/features than the other?

Hi Folks,

The title of the thread says it all really.

I have legitimate copy of Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate on my PC. I have just bought a copy of Office 2016 Professional Plus through the HUP.

I haven't installed Office 2016 yet - I use Office 2010 at work and find using Custom Animations in PowerPoint tricky compared to Office 2007.

I'd like to install Office 2016 alongside Office 2007 until I have tried Office 2016 to see if the Custom Animations in PP are easier than the 2010 version before switching completely.

My question is, can I install Office 2016 alongside Office 2007 without conflicts - switching between versions without a problem or will installing Office 2016 screw Office 2007 or worse FUBAR both Office installations or my PC.

Any help gratefully received.

Cheers,

Zaph

Office 2016 Installation Routine Deleting Older Stand-alone Apps






I can't say I wasn't warned. I was part way through installing Microsoft Office 2016 on my primary workstation when I got a message that said, "Stop, you should wait to install Office 2016." The error message went on to say that if I decided to continue anyway, my copy of Microsoft Visio Standard 2013 would be removed. Since I had the original disk from when I purchased the software, I went ahead. Bad move. It turns out that when Microsoft says that Visio 2013 won't work with Office 2016, it means it won't even have the chance to work. Any attempt to reinstall the software will be thwarted. The fact that you paid for the software is beside the point. You're basically out of luck. When I went to the Microsoft community forums, which is where Microsoft handles much of its tech support, I discovered that I wasn't alone. Apparently hundreds of people who'd purchased stand-alone Microsoft Office products were affected, and they weren't happy about it.

Furthermore, the problem extended far beyond Visio. Users with Microsoft Project, Publisher, Access, InfoPath and SharePoint Designer were also affected. Likewise, Microsoft customers who purchased Office Apps that are normally part of Office suites but may have been purchased separately, such as Outlook 2013, were also affected.

Hi, is there any way of backing up all email accounts in Outlook 2013 (including username+password) and restoring them in Outlook 2016 without having to manually recreate the accounts? Thanks

A:Migrating Outlook from Office 2013 to Office 2016

You didn't say what types of accounts they are, but mostly likely there isn't a way, unless there is a third-party tool or these are Exchange accounts.

Hi there

It looks like that a Student and Teacher edition of Office 2016 will be available at around 90 GBP - 105 EUR while an Office 365 subscription will be around 60 GBP - 73 EUR for 1 year. Since the Student edition will work on 3 machines it seems to me the subscription model is bad value compared with Office 2016.

Now there might be a caveat -- not sure if OUTLOOK 2016 is included with Student and Teacher --we'll have to wait and see.

There *Might* also be an Upgrade price from Office 2010 / 2013 too.

No.

While possible it is not recommended to install multiple versions of Office on the same computer. But they both must be the same bits. The only way this could be done is to install one on a virtual machine.

Now! ESET has just released their newest security suite: ESET Smart Security 9 (2016 Edition). These products are on the top of security suites which are produced by giants on security companies. Most of them released 2016 editions of their products. I want to compare on their newest products with new features (such as on ESET: Banking Protection, Bitdefender: Ransomware Protection and new Firewall, etc...) and some enhanced features.

And now, which is your choose for your security? Please let me know your opinion!
 

A:Battle: Kaspersky IS 2016 vs ESET Smart Security 2016 vs Bitdefender IS 2016 vs Emsisoft IS 10

its hard choice choose between Eset,Kaspersky and Emsisoft.
in fact i never test Eset 2016, but i tested kaspersky and Emsisoft, Kaspersky 2016 really go lighter than Emsisoft(now i am Emsisoft useres)
by your budget and your interest u can choose Emsisoft or kaspersky.

First time post here, hope I follow all the rules.

Looking to acquire MS Office 2016 Professional. I have 4 computers, 3 tablets, 3 phones in the house. I have read different things about buying the software vs subscribing in terms of how many devices the software could be installed on. 2 computers use Windows 7, 1 uses Windows 8.1 and 1 uses Windows 10. Seeking advice/referrals on the best/most cost effective way to get MS Office on at least all the computers. All computers currently use MS Office 2007. Thanks.
 

A:Best way to get Office 2016

i would subscribe to put a standalone version of office on all those machines would be expensive

Assuming and average price of 120 for Office Home & Student
4 computers = 480 and does not include a tablet at that price

the subscription service at 80 per year and you can add to PCs and tablets upto 5 devices - so thats 6years to get a saving - And you are likely to change machines in that time

Also with the subscription you get the FULL version and all products (outlook, publisher - which would cost 250 )

unless you can find a multi-license version to run on 3 or more PCs
then the subscription maybe the way to go.

Hey guys
I'm trying to download Office 2016 preview. When I go to the download links it redirects me to a page to sign in to a personal Microsoft account. As i understand it you need a corporate O365 subscription to get the preview, which I have access to through my school. I just can't get it to authenticate with O365 business/education instead of the personal MS account. I don't have a personal O365 subscription either.

I have Office 2003 and tried downloading and running 2016. It did the download as expected and put icons down in the task bar. When I clicked on the Excel tab, it said it would activate it if I put in my email address and phone number. The alternative was to enter the Product Key. Everything acted, again, as if all was well and then it said it had stopped running and I should shut it down. Repeated tries gave me the same results. Trying any other component (Word, Powerpoint, etc.) also caused an immediate crash. FWIW, my first attempts to use it were to bring up previous files made in the 2003 version. This install was done through a web site and was part of a group offer. Any thoughts? Was I supposed to uninstall the 2003 version first? There weren't any instructions.
I uninstalled it for now.

Hi cstull1217 Microsoft Office allows you to uninstall components separately. To do so, simply go in the Control Panel and uninstall Microsoft Office. It'll ask you if you want to uninstall Office, repair the installation, modify it, etc. Select the option to modify Office, and opt-out the ones you don't need before proceeding.https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Install-or-remove-individual-Office-2010-programs-and-components-aeb80df5-326c-4afc-8064-bd195f560753

Dear all,

I'm stuggling with an issue on Office 2016 using the text to speak feature (in word).

By default it's on United States so you have to download the Microsoft Speech Platform https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=24974

Then you can choose the languages you wish the document to speak by downloading the language packs https://support.office.com/en-us/art...__toc252354033

I have done both, and I've downloaded the United Kingdom, selected it in the Word Document under Proofing and it still reads in an American voice.

Despite I have another laptop here from a colleague who's is a female voice and is speaking in an english accent but it's too loud and distorted, yet the American voice seems to be fine and crystal clear.

Any ideas how I either fix the distorted voice for United Kingdom on one of the laptops (Also how do you change from male to female)
OR
How to download and make the United Kingdom language pack work with the voice so I can test if it's Microsoft's problem or a problem with the laptop.

Thank you,

A:Error installing Office 2016

Hi:

Are you trying to install from media (DVD) or from a download?

After UNinstalling, did you manually remove any leftover MS Office folders in your Program Files or Program Files(x86) directory before you tried to reinstall?

Is your MS Office installation properly activated?

If your license is provided from your school, does it permit installing on more than one system at a time?
(You mention having MS Office 2016 on a 2nd computer. I would guess such a restriction probably impacts ACTIVATION, rather than INSTALLATION, but I think MS has tightened up restrictions on "Educational" and "Site License" software. I used to be able to legally install/activate on 2 computers (my work laptop and my home desktop), but the new arrangement only permits 1 install/activation.)

Just a few thoughts...

Ive been using/loving Office 2010 (and specifically Outlook 2010) since its release.

Just got some new desktops for the office and they all come with 2016.

Should I just make the transition now? The only thing that concerned me with prior versions was the lack of color and monotony but it appears they have added some color to 2016...

A:Should I graduate to Office 2016 from 2010?

That really is a decision you will have to make. Having all computers using Office 2016 would give the best commonality & probably reduce some wrong decisions when operators are using different computers. You also need to keep in mind the extra cost factor of upgrading.

My Windows Office 2016 subscription expires this month.
I need to renew but I was wondering when 2017 is going to be released.
I searched online but I found a lot of stuff on 2016, but nothing for 2017.
It probably won't be released this month but I thought I would check, because I don't want to buy it this week and have a new version come out next week.

I don't think MSFT does this for Office like they do for Windows 10, but if we purchase an Office product and there are changes during the year, do they issue updates? I don't recall any.
If they issue 2017 after I buy the 2016 version does it get updated when they release the new version? I don't think they do, but I thought I would ask.

Many thanks!

A:Windows Office 2016/2017

Office is not updated to a new version every year - for Windows was 2010, then 2013 then 2016.

If you get a subscription now you will get 2016 (plus latest updates) and it will automatically update to latest version whenever it is released (assuming your subscription is still valid).

So I was trying to install Office 2016 Pro Plus (Volume licence) and every time I try it just ends up with Microsoft Office encountered an error during setup. This is incredibly frustrating and I have no idea why it's happening (since it doesn't display any specific error message) and was wondering if someone could help me out with this.

I simply start setup.exe, click on customise and run all from my computer from the first box which just says Microsoft Office (workplace tutorial says to do so) and then just click Install now, then after 5 or so minutes it just comes up with the message "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016 encountered an error during setup", with the only other option being to either click the question mark (which just opens a generic help page) or click close.

Now here's the thing, before I upgraded Windows 10 to the anniversary update I had Office installed from this method but office always acted weird (such as the whole word window acting unresponsive if I were to minimise it and then re-opening it after I check something in chrome), so just before upgrading I uninstalled office and was hoping to re-install once I got upgraded, yet now the installation fails every time.
I initially thought maybe this was because there were leftover files from the uninstall but after following a manual uninstall guide from Microsoft it still failing to install, so now I'm in dire need of help.

Good day all,

Sorry if this has been asked before but after I installed Office 2016 Pro, I noticed that it immediately pooped all of the Office apps onto my PC including ones that I really don't need. There's no custom option to select the ones you want and the ones you don't (unlike Office 2013).
I read that it's apparently intended to do so and Microsoft actually has called it a technology (Click To Run Technology).

I was wondering if there's ANY way to be able to exclude apps before the install so that they won't install. Is there a file that I can edit and if so, how exactly should I edit it?

A:No Custom install for Office 2016?

Folks have complained about this same problem in the Windows 10 forums -- and the response there is that MS has removed the option to choose what components to install.

Hi  Newbie in UK here and need some pointers on this subject, MS Office Home & Business 2016  I'm in the process of buying a new laptop with Win 10 to replace my aging Dell on Vista (yes, its ancient!). I have found another Dell that I want to buy but adding the additional Office H&B 2016 significantly bumps up the price. So my query is: 1. Buying Office H&B 2016 from an external seller that I'd found on line is significantly cheaper than from Dell or from MS. How do I know the package is a genuine one and not an imitation/fake from the external seller? 2. The risk of buying 1 that turns out to be fake could be costly, e.g. result in a complete Windows install, or cause even more damage which may require Dell support, which they may not assist due to the Office H&B 2016 is purchased from an external seller?  What are your thoughts?

Libre works well and you can save documents and spreadsheets with a MS file extension so MS Office users can open your Libre Office file.

Unless MS have put the kibosh on that with latest release, I don't know, but probably unlikely.

I will concede MS Office has two very good programs though - Outlook and Publisher, almost worth the 220 smackers for those two.

When offered a low-cost way to get Office 2016 I installed it on my Win 7 64 bit computer. I still had Office 2010 installed and the Office 2016 ran ok. I did not like it nearly as much as I liked Office 2010, so I uninstalled it. I've gotten rid of ALMOST all evidence it was ever on my machine; however, I'm chasing a problem with gmail POP3 not connecting to the server and when I went to follow instructions for creating a new email profile to test connections, I found that my control panel shows Outlook 2016 (see screenshot). When I click on it I get an "Application not found" error. I'm trying to have that removed from my control panel and have it replaced by Outlook 2010.

I went into the registry trying to get rid of the Outlook 2016, so I found what appears to be Office versions 8 through 16 (I deleted the 16, assuming it was Office 2016). Can I delete the Office 8, 9, and 11 versions in this registry folder? What about the Outlook version that doesn't appear as a subfolder to any numbered Office version? Can I delete it w/o problems? I've attached a screenshot that shows what I'm talking about.

I've been using MS Office 2016 in it's subscription/365 form for a while like I said but before subscription packages I used physical copies of Office and with those, had a different MS account -- so as it stands now I have two MS accounts and it's actually pretty annoying. Anyway, I've been thinking about trying to get Microsoft Office Certified, so when I dug up my old copy of Office 2010 Home and Student, I decided to to install it, naively thinking nothing of potential complications resulting from two different versions being installed in the same machine, and the installation actually gave no indication that there would be any issues. However, soon after the installation finished, I noticed that every Office Document, be it Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, was appearing as, and opening as, an Office 2010 document.

I thought that was really strange but figured it would be an easy fix and that, for some reason, the default programs had just reverted to their 2010 versions, so I tried right clicking one of them, opening it correctly with Office 2016 but to my surprise, not only was '16 not one of the immediate options I was given, when I did finally track the 2016 program all the way back to it's original installation location, it did not allow me to open the file with it. I then did the next logical thing and tried switching the default executable program for MS Office files back to the 2016 version by going Control Panel > Programs but that didn't work either.

A:Anyone know about installing Office '10 on a comp w/a 365 2016 subscription?

Having multiple versions of Office installed on a computer isn't a problem, but you:
a) should always install the older version first (which you didn't); and
b) cannot have both a subscription version and a stand-alone version on the same PC (which is what you have tried to do).
Therefore, you will now need to uninstall one version and, possibly, repair the other.

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."

Machine is Toshiba L70-C-13c, Windows 10 Home, 64 Bit, Core I3, 8Gb, Toshiba 1TB Disk.

Originally, the primary problem was that ITunes wasn't syncing IPad. From Apple help, noticed that USB hub controller was not detected, and that Apple USB driver was not being activated. Simply wasn't there, after numerous fixes. Spoke to Apple, went up to them, they suggested doing reinstall of Windows

Notice from McAfee reports that administrator account wasn't complete, which was puzzling. It's a Toshiba disk, which I find notoriously unreliable.

Windows was restored. Restore took 7 hours, yip, suggesting something possibly wrong with the disk. It did do a clean disk, half through the operation, and after completed, reinstalled ITunes, iPad synced right away, with the Apple USB driver activating correctly, in the USB device hierarchy, shown in device manager, and disappearing after sync was completed. So the original problem was fixed.

Did a short DST test, and it came back OK Looked at SMART diagnostics and they were fine as well. So disk seems to be in good condition considered it only 12 months old and managed to install a bundle of software, which went in fine.

So we come to the 1603 error on install of Office 2013 x 64.

Worked the problem according to Microsoft. Enabled logging by setting up a config.xml and loading it on the command line. Verbose logging showed some error codes, below.

HI, 
I just bought Office Home and Student 2016 last August 7, 2016 from a mall in Long Island, NY. I tried to install it but it gave me a message:"The program can't start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem", whenever I click on Excel or Word.
 
I tried reinstalling it 6 x and no progress. I tried uninstalling and installing the program, the same message I got. I tried Windows 7 update but it seems there is none.
 
The old Excel and Word 7 were package installed in my laptop computer when I bought it from Best Buy in 2011. I bought the MS Office because I had a computer crash. My Toshiba laptop recovered a few of my files. Luckily I have a record of my anti-virus registration and I was able to reinstall it. Now I need MS Office to access some of my files in my USB.
 
Some recommendation I got was to temporarily disconnect the anti-virus or the firewall. I do not know how to do this. Someone please help me!

Microsoft has already announced a ton of exciting stuff this week, but the company isn't done yet. Today, it announced that the next version of its fully-featured Office suite of desktop PC applications will be called Office 2016.



Microsoft has been testing the new version of Office internally with a handful of its key partners. Images that leaked last year suggest the new release won't rock the boat too much in terms of design, although customers can expect to see a range of new features and improvements.

The company said today that it "will have more to share on Office 2016 in the coming months", confirming its earlier promise of releasing the new applications "in the second half of 2015" ? perhaps coinciding with the launch of Windows 10, which is expected around the same time.

Although Microsoft did not publicly show its new Office 2016 desktop applications this week, it did unveil its new suite of touch-friendly Office apps for Windows. As with the touch-optimized Office apps on Android and iOS, they lack the complete feature set of the desktop applications, but they still offer many of the features that users need most often for creating, editing and sharing documents.

As Universal Windows apps, they'll be available not just on Windows 10 PCs, notebooks, and tablets, but also on smartphones. Microsoft shared a few images of the Office touch apps for Windows 10 today, showing how they'll look on handsets and devices with l... Read more

Hi there

The old links had the product already activated -- the links were removed by Ms within a few hours. Currently you need to activate via an Office 365 subscription -- I don't have nor want one of those or even Office 2013. You could try an Office 2013 key though to see if it works.

There might be a *proper* public trial later.

I installed MS Office 2016 on my windows 8.1 computer yesterday and after the complete install I kept getting and error message when I would try to open a word document stating "Word could not create the work file. Check the Temp environment variable."

After some searching I found this workaround on a ms site
WorkaroundTo resolve this issue, use one of the following methods.

Method 1 Change the location for the Temporary Internet Files folder for Internet Explorer. To do this, follow these steps:
1. In Internet Explorer, click Internet Options on the Tools menu.
2. In the Internet Options dialog box, click the General tab.
3. In the Browsing history section, click Settings.
4. In the Temporary Internet Files and History Settings dialog box, click Move Folder.
In the Browse for Folder dialog box, select the following location: <Drive:>\Users\<user name>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files.
Note AppData is a hidden folder. To show hidden files and folders, visit the following
1. Click OK to close the open dialog boxes.
2. Restart the computer.

After doing this the word issue / error messages I was getting were gone.

However, today I realized that some of my live tiles were not working so I ran the windows 8/8.1 troubleshooting diagnostics and it said that my temporary internet files were in the wrong place and I let it fix that issue.

Hello,
I have a pretty much brand new, relatively high-spec PC on Windows 10 that keeps freezing.
When:
- It crashes when Windows starts up and the mouse isn't moved for a few minutes. If I startup and move the mouse within the first few minutes it works fine
- Randomly freezes during videos or gaming every few days
Error:
- Event Viewer tells me that just before the 'Kernel-Power' Critical Error which crashes the PC, the 'Office 2016 Licensing Service' Error occurs every time. So as this Office error occurs before each crash, I'm assuming its causing it
- When I double-click on the Office error, I can the following details:
''The description for Event ID 0 from source Office 2016 Licensing Service cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.
If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.
The following information was included with the event:
Subscription licensing service failed: -1073418220''
Any help would be much appreciated, I've been living with this issue for months and tried to fix it myself for so long. I just don't know where else to turn to.
Thanks in advance,

So this is absolutely a First World Problem, but an inconvenience for me nonetheless: As a freelance journalist, I write and share a lot of documents, using Word 2016. When I use the File -> Share button to send the document directly from Word, Outlook 2016 will be started, regardless of whats my default mail program. But since Outlook is not actually running, my mail won't be send automatically. I've to start Outlook 2016 first and manually click send/receive, or close Outlook since it will send/receive automatically in that case.
I'd rather use the default Mail app from Windows 10 to share documents, since it's more lightweight and running in the background anyways. If there a way to configure this? Please note: it is already my default mailing app, but Office is apparently ignoring this.
Or is there a way to either make sure Outlook will actually SEND the document when I press 'send', or make Outlook run automatically in the background?
On a sidenote: I tried making Outlook 2016 start automatically with Windows 10, but then the program stays on my task bar. Even when I enable 'hide when minimalized', it will show on my task bar. If I then open it (maximize it, basically) and minimalize it again, it will disapear as it should, bu once again, it's a silly inconvenience.
If anyone knows how to fix this stupid little problem, it would be awesome

I'm planning to reinstall windows 10 and I know that it will remove Windows updates etc. Will it also remove Microsoft Office 2016 updates? Thanks

A:Will Reinstalling Windows 10 affect Microsoft Office 2016 updates?

That depends on how you plan on reinstalling Windows 10.

Do it this way and you lose everything, including all your data files and Office 2016 completely, including updates. You will have to reinstall everything:
Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums

Do it this way, and you only refresh Windows 10 itself and nothing else should be affected, including Office 2016:
Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums
