Today I was trying to install office 2016 on SharePoint 2016 server and got below message.
Is it possible to install both on the same server?
100% ACK to Waqas recommendation: Do not install Office on a productive SharePoint-Server.
But: We had the same problem as you when installing Developer-VMs. They need Office to test their work. Microsoft has two installer-modes for Office-Applications: MSI and Click-to-Run.
You cannot install a Click-to-Run Office on a SharePoint-machine as SharePoint is always a MSI-Installer. We were not able to get an MSI-Installer for Office2016. So we had to install Office2013 with MSI-Installer.
