I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

How did you deploy office 2016 (Setup.X86.en-us_O365BusinessRetail)?

JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Uninstall Office completely (all bits) and use the same user name that was used to install it. Restart the system as Sam User and install Office again. Supply admin credentials as required. Restart and test.

Another thing to try is possibly reinstall as an admin user but be sure it is installed for all users.

I did a uninstall but noticed after reinstalling all accounts (email/data) where in place, I assume office was not completely removed. Was done via control panel. How can i do a complete uninstall?

The installation file name is a interesting log name.exe

Use a tool like Revo to remove residual files.

Revo can completely remove, but I have had occasion when the complete removal that way prevented later reinstall.

What Windows OS?  You may try removing Office again and then doing a Windows Repair Install.
