I was installing SP2016 in one of the VM and encountered a strange issue. When run the installer, am getting the below exception.
We found a problem!
We’re sorry, Microsoft Office installer encountered a problem because you have these Click-to-Run installer based Office programs installed on your computer:
Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016 – en-us
Windows Installer and Click-to-Run editions of Office programs don’t get along for this version, so you can only have one type installed at a time. Please try installing the Click-to-Run edition of Office instead, or uninstall your other Click-to-Run based Office programs and try this installation again.
The only observation here is, the server in which I am trying to install is already been installed with Office 2016. Hence, this issue was coming.
After uninstalling the Office 2016, I was able to install the SP2016. And when I try to re-install Office 2016, again the same exception stating, already SP2016 is installed on this server. Hence, I have installed Office 2013 on that Server back.
Hence, one observation – SP2016 cannot be installed along with Office 2016 and vice versa.
