Error message: we’re sorry, Office Click to Run installer encountered a problem because you have these Windows Installer based Office programs installed on your computer.

The error message ‘we’re sorry, Office Click to Run installer encountered a problem because you have these Windows Installer based Office programs installed on your computer.’ has already been discussed in my blog article ‘Click to Run and Windows Installer editions do not get along‘.

  1. it is not supported by Microsoft
  2. If you try to save a Visio drawing on OneDrive, you will think the drawing has been saved, but actually it is not.
