Hi

I am trying to package up O365 (Excel only) 32 bit to run on Win 10 20H2 which has O365 64bit running on it.

I am packaging on a vanilla 1909 OS (not sure if that matters) using version 1.2020.1006.0 of the msix packaging tool.  I can capture up the install of the software fine and Excel itself will open fine after the installation.  The Click to run service is included in the package.

 

The problem I have is that when I try and install the package on Win 10 20H2 I am getting the failure

"The package installation failed because a version of the service exists outside of APPX packaging. Please contact your software vendor."

error code 0x80073D27

 

Does anyone know what might be causing this and if there is a fix?  If the C2R service has been included in the package (which it says it has) then why is it complaining about the existence of one on the laptop?

 

Thanks

 

Graeme

Hello, We do not recommend packaging Office apps as an MSIX package. Office is working longer term on adopting MSIX through a phased approach in a way that addresses Enterprise needs without disruption.
