Possible Errors In
Installment And Their Fixes

Now that you have your suite installed, you can easily start using it. However, sometimes during the installation process, an error might appear. There are different types of errors that can occur while installing the Microsoft Office. If you get a message saying “Office-(64-bit or 32-bit) couldn’t-be-installed”, it means that you already have a Microsoft Office installed but the wrong version. There is a rule that you can’t mix the 64-bit with the 32-bit versions. The easiest thing to do in this case is to uninstall the old Office version from your computer and install the new one. This time, it can be either version, and it shouldn’t cause any problems.

Another one of the most common errors that occur while installing the Microsoft Office is the so-called “Microsoft-Office-Error-1935”. In order for you to fix this error, most importantly, you need to know what usually causes the error in the first place. One thing might be the antivirus installed in your computer – some antiviruses are set up in such a way that they block the installation of certain applications to protect the computer. Error 1935 might indicates that you are installing an old version of Microsoft Office or the files from this suite have been erased or deleted. If you see this message, you should also check your proxy, i.e. your Internet settings.

Now that you’ve located the problem, you need to fix it. To fix the Error 1935, you need to repair the Microsoft.NET Framework. There is a short and easy process to do this and it is the same for any version of Microsoft Office.

The first step is to hold on the Windows logo and then press the letter “R” on your keyboard. Next, you need to type cpl which will open the programs and features windows. Look for the Microsoft.NET Framework and select it, then click on the button “Uninstall” or “change”. There will be a “Continue” button to click to run repairing with administrator privileges.

You will get an option to choose from “Repair” and “Uninstall” buttons, where you need to choose Repair and this will launch a Setup Wizard. When the process is finished, just click on “Exit”. Once you have completed all these steps, you can install the Microsoft Office. In case you can’t repair the Microsoft.NET Framework, it might mean that it hasn’t been installed, so you would need to install it.
