Why won’t Microsoft Office 365 install? Stuck on Getting things ready

So you are stuck trying to install MS Office 2016 with your 365 installer download. You see, We’re getting things ready… which promptly disappears and nothing has happened.


You’ve read that maybe you should leave it for a few hours, restart the computer, and hope that it has appeared… you could do that.

Or you could use this handy little tool to blitz all Click-to-run installations from Control Panel which should then allow Microsoft Office 365 to install properly – yes please!


After doing that, restart the computer and give that Office 365 installer download another go… here’s to hoping!
