MIM 2016 SP1 Add-ins and Extensions installation error with Outlook (Office 2016 Pro Plus) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm working with MIM 2016 SP1, testing out the Exchange Online support for the MIM Service account.  I'm trying to install the MIM Add-ins and Extensions on a Windows 10 Enterprise (Anniversary) client that has Office 2016 Pro Plus installed on it.

    During the installation, I get the error "Microsoft Forms/Smart Tags .Net Programmability Support or RegAsm.exe" when running the installer.   With the MSI version of Office, I could have added that support to Outlook through the Change installation option in Programs and Features, but with Office Pro Plus, that is not an option.

    Any suggestions on how to get this working?

    Thanks,

    Marc

  • Circling back on this in case anyone else runs into this, I was able to get the MIM 2016 SP Add-ins and Extensions installed after a) ensuring Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 was enabled through the Windows Features, and b) running an Online Repair against my Office 365 Pro Plus install.

    It seems that the initial Office 365 installation only pulls down the minimum needed to run O365 Office.  An Online Repair pulls down all the bits and does a full reinstallation, after which I was able to install the Add-in.  A few reboots were mixed in, but I'm not sure they were all required.

  • I am getting the same error trying to install the MIM SP1 Outlook Addin but in my case the Office 365 Online Repair has not changed the result.  Is there a way to install this component explicitly?

  • I'm also getting the same error with MIM 2016 SP1, Windows 10, and Office 365 Pro Plus. Enabling .NET 3.5 features and running online Office repairs have not helped.
