I get this error: Microsoft setup boots-trapper had stopped working A problem caused the program to stop working correctly while trying to install Office Pro 2016.
Microsoft gives a solution to delete a registry key, that fails to: an error occurred while trying to delete the registry key. Ran the "regedit.exe" as administrator, to no avail.

Try manually uninstalling any office version you have and any 2016 parts that may have been installed.
Look for office 16 on your system.  For registry keys, look for the proper ones.

Example:
Instead of HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0 look for HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0 on the system

The fix for me was to mount the .iso and run it from there directly.
