To Resolve:

  3. Try these steps: Run => regedit => navigate to, export, and delete:

    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0
  4. Sign in to your MS account page and click on the “Install” button to reinstall MS Office. Alternatively, you can use the disc that came with MS Office when you purchased it if applicable.
