Office trying to install Office 64-bit Components even though 32-bit is installed

I have a customer running Server 2012 as a Terminal Server with about 20 users.  One particular user is experiencing an Outlook crash - BEX, even in safe mode.  I noticed that whenever we open up Outlook, a message box pops up stating:  Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Office 64-bit components 2013.  

Office 64 bit is not installed.  The 32-bit is installed.   I logged in as other users but do not see this 64-bit popup message when opening up Outlook.

Any ideas as to what I should look for to correct this issue?

Office 32-bit has some 64-bit components that live in program files 64-bit folder. However, if installed properly, it will not demand additional 64-bit components.

Has the user installed related 64-bit apps?  Adobe, Flash, Java and some other apps should all be 32-bit if Office is 32-bit

the last piece of software installed was on 2/12/2015 TurboTax 2013.  The crashing started yesterday 2/25/2015.  Flash and Java are not installed on the server.  Adobe Acrobat XI Pro was installed back on 12/18/2014.  When I go to the add-ins in Outlook, all add-ins live in the program files(x86) folder.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I had Turbo Tax 2013 on my computer with Office 2013 32-bit, Acrobat 32-bit and so on. No issues. I uninstalled TT 2013 a week ago and installed Turbo Tax 2014 a week ago and still no issues.

Look in Reliability Monitor to see if you can determine what is causing the BEX crash.

Also (one user issue out of 20), consider a damaged account profile and re-create that.

I first recreated an Outlook account and same BEX crash error.  I then created a new account profile and new Outlook profile and same BEX error.   This was the first thing I did yesterday.

The problem user has the same software installed but the other 19 users have no problem. There must be a conflict in some software they have installed.

Try starting Outlook in Safe Mode (No add-ins). Will it run in Safe Mode?

What did Reliability Monitor say about BEX if anything.

Outlook crashes in safe-mode as well with BEX error.  There is another app that is crashing simultaneously.  We called Worldox support and they stated that their software is not compatible with 64 bit Office and blames it on that quick pop-up, however Office 32-bit is installed, not 64-bit but they are blaming it on that.

Here is what I found concerning the 64-bit pop-up.

https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/b8e8277c-a2f9-426a-bb3d-3f45bd0a47fc/installation-runs-everytime-we-start-outlook-2013-application-in-terminal-services?forum=officesetupdeploy

I will try this first to clear the pop-up.  I am leaning the issue being caused by Worldox WBGX.exe

See what your suggestion yields. All but one user works fine and all you are trying to do works on my machine.

Probably the best solution is to build a new Termimal server profile and do a fresh install of needed software.

Just as an update, installing Windows Search Service corrected the Microsoft Office 64-bit Components 2013 pop-up but Outlook continues to crash.  I noticed every time I open up Outlook it will show Updating on the bottom right hand corner, which is common.  The coincidence I see is as soon as it reaches, “Updating Deleted Items”, Outlook crashes.
 
I configured one of my exchange test mailboxes on the user's profile and outlook does not crash, so this leads me to believe there is a problem with their Deleted Items folder.   I am waiting for permission to empty the deleted items folder.

Issue was resolved by emptying out the deleted items folder.
