4] Reinstall Microsoft Office or Microsoft 365
If you already have Office installed on your computer and are getting this error when trying to uninstall it or in general, due to it being a free trial version, you need to use the Microsoft Office Uninstaller Tool to uninstall Office.
You can also use Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant to uninstall or fix Office problems.
Once you have uninstalled Office, restart your computer, ensure that you have a stable internet connection and reinstall Office.
Installing Microsoft Office requires an active internet connection. However, if your internet connection is unstable or not working properly, you may encounter difficulties during installation. That’s why we recommend using the Offline Installer to install the service without an active internet connection. Therefore, you need to use Office Installer to install the service office.
