Office 365 ProPlus Click to Run Deployment Gotchas – Part 4

Part 4 – Click to Run installs hate traditional installs.

Today I was cruising through some SharePoint configuration, and when I went to install SharePoint Designer 2013 from the o365 portal, I got this message:

Click to Run hates Traditional Installs


The “Go online for additional help” link goes here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Fix-Office-365-or-Office-2013-install-errors-54554bb8-aa94-43c7-a685-408dd9868c0b?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

So I have the base Office 2013 suite installed via Click to Run.  I then installed the “Windows Installer” (the .MSI method) versions of Visio 2013 and Project 2013.  With this setup, everything has worked for months.  Adding the CtR install of SharePoint Designer was just too much for this game of software Jenga.  I guess I’ll be downloading the “Windows Installer” (link) and seeing how that goes.  With Click to Run basically using the guts of App-V at its core, it’s a little disappointing to see it not…just work.
