Upgrade issues with Office 2016

Well, if you don’t have a stand-alone installation [i.e. Word 2013 installed, not Office 2013] of any component of Office 2013, you probably don’t have to worry much.

It seems that if you install Office 2016 on a system that has a system that has a stand-alone [i.e. just Word or Excel but not part of a suite] retail Office 2013 application, during the Office 2016 installation, it will warn you that it will remove the office 2013 application.

Microsoft is aware of the issue . To fix the issue, you need to contact Accounts & Billing to obtain a free upgrade. The offer expires June 30, 2016. You must have a Microsoft Account associated with at least one of the qualifying standalone Office 2013 products above, plus one of the qualifying Office 2016 products.

If you use InfoPath 2013, you can download a new copy here.

If you use SharePoint Designer 2013, you can download a new copy here.

If you are using Skype for Business stand-alone [not part of a suite] it may get removed and you can’t re-install. To fix the problem, 32-bit install or 64-bit install.
