The Click-to-Run installation service failed to start - installing office

Iron Contributor

Hello everyone,

 

I've recently attempted to install Microsoft Office, an application I've been using for a long time. However, this week, all my installation attempts have been met with an error message: "The Click-to-Run installation service failed to start. Check the installation logs for additional information."

I'm not sure why this is happening. I tried to create my own win32app following the steps outlined in this guide: https://call4cloud.nl/2021/02/office-csp-vs-win32app-dawn-of-justice/. I even used the provided XML files, but when I follow these steps, I only receive an "installing" toast notification, and the installation never completes.

I would greatly appreciate any assistance with this issue!

There should be installation logs in the TEMP folder, if I'm not mistaken...

Hi @Harm_Veenstra 

 

Installing Version 22H2 (OS build 19045) fixed it!

Ah, up-to-date is always a good idea ;)
