The time has come. You’ve read the information, you’ve had the conversations, you’ve crossed the last t and dotted the last i. It’s time to upgrade to Office 2016!
You’re halfway through the installation process when you get the following message:
“We need to remove some older apps. Some older apps don’t work with Office 2016. Before installing the new Office, we need to remove:…”
You may find previous versions (2013 or earlier) of applications like OneDrive for Business or Visio no longer work with Office 2016. But not to worry! Microsoft is working on the problem and, in the meantime, have offered a couple simple workarounds.
Option 1: Call Microsoft…
…or let a Microsoft partner like Broadview Networks take care of you. Office 2016 is all about being streamlined and easy-to-use, a solution can always be found.
Whether it be an upgrade to newer versions of the app, or even another option for a program that may add more value for your business, step one is always to talk to the source: we’re here to help!
Option 2: Use a workaround
Microsoft has created an official workaround that essentially creates a custom installation of Office 2016 for issues with OneDrive for Business. Working with a Microsoft partner will ensure that this fix is deployed quickly and easily.
