Installation of MS Project Professional with office click and run results in error because of existing MS Office 2016 Version that was installed with Windows Installer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there anybody with a solution to this problem? Microsoft writes in the FAQ that solution is to get a different MS Project Version installable with Windows Installer just like the already installed office 2016.
    But I bought the MS Project 2016 official product licence key and got the download exe.

    I didn#t know/ read that it would install with e click and run installer...

    What can I do ? Txs for xour kind support

  • Hi, in fact this combination is incompatible, as discussed in this article: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt712177(v=office.16).aspx However, as far as I know, you also have the right to get a msi version, if you bought the product. Best contact Microsoft directly in this case.
