Trying to get Outlook 2016 to search RRS feed

  • Question

  • Support told me to do the following:

      • Open a command prompt and run the following commands       in order:

    cd %programfiles%\Common Files\Microsoft        Shared\ClickToRun

    officec2rclient.exe /update user        updatetoversion=16.0.7571.2109

      • Open Outlook and click File, Office Account and set    Update Options to Disable Updates

    Add an appointment on your calendar for a month or more out to remind you to re-enable updates.

    But my PowerShell Admin won't accept the first command:

    PS C:\windows\system32> cd %programfiles%\Common Files\Microsoft        Shared\ClickToRun
    Set-Location : A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument 'Files\Microsoft'.
    At line:1 char:1
    + cd %programfiles%\Common Files\Microsoft        Shared\ClickToRun
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (:) [Set-Location], ParameterBindingException
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PositionalParameterNotFound,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.SetLocationCommand

    Any ideas? Thanks!

  • The instructions are not PowerShell code.  Please ask you support person for help.

    The PowerShell version is:

    cd "$env:ProgramFiles\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\ClickToRun"

    The instructions given are for CMD and not PowerShell.

    This is not a support forum for bad support help.  Work with your support people to get the instructions corrected.
