Eliminate Office error code 30015-11 (-1073610698)

With the following measures, we then managed to install Office 2016 version 16.0.8431.2131 .

First you should download and run the Microsoft uninstall tool O15CTRRemove “. With this tool, all installed Office versions are completely uninstalled. We use this tool very often and it does a very good job of completely uninstalling the office.

For security reasons, we advise you to check whether there are still fragments of an old version of Office in the ” % ProgramFiles% ” folder . If so, delete these old Office folders. In the registry, you can also search for the remains of Office installations in the following keys and remove them if necessary.

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWARE Microsoft Office ClickToRun
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Microsoft Office

Then we restarted the Windows 10 PC and let the O15CTRRemove tool run again. Furthermore, we have deactivated all “Startup programs” in the Windows Task Manager and also deactivated all non-Microsoft services in “MSCONFIG” . This is the only way we can assume a Windows Clean Boot and can be sure that no other program has a negative impact on a new Office installation.

Virus scanner & Windows system check

Then we restarted the PC with a clean boot, briefly deactivated the installed virus scanner (in our case TrendMicro OfficeScan) and started the Windows resource check program with “SFC / SCANNOW” . This eliminates any inconsistencies in the Windows system files.

Finally, we then performed the Office Setup again and this time the Office 2016 installation went through without the error code 30015-11 (-1073610698).
