Language Accessory Pack for Office Newer Versions

If you have uninstalled all your Office versions from your Windows 7 computer in an attempt to remove the Windows Installer versions, then you may have seen the error message, “Office installed using Click-to-Run and Windows Installer on the same computer is not supported.”

The reason you may be seeing this message is that you have tried to install an Office 365 product or a standalone Office 2016 or 2013 application. For example, Project, Skype for Business, Visio, or OneDrive for Business, when you have a 2013 or 2016 version of Microsoft Office Professional Plus or of Microsoft Office Standard currently installed onto your computer. 

Another issue could be that there are still remains of your deleted applications in your system. Unfortunately, you cannot have Office products of the same version, for example, 2013 or 2016, that utilize two different installation technologies on the same computer. 

To rectify this issue, follow the steps in the instructions on how to Uninstall Office 2013Office 2016, or Office 365 from a Windows device to get rid of the Windows Installer version of Office. 

Next, you can retry the installation of MS Office you were attempting before getting the error message. 

Language Accessory Pack for Office 

Language packs are what add proofing tools, an additional display, and help to Office. You are able to install extra Language Accessory Packs after installing Microsoft Office. 

If the Language Accessory Pack you are attempting to download is described as having partial localization, then this may be because some parts of Office are still displaying in the language of your copy of Microsoft Office. 

Keep in mind, that if a language is only listed once, for example, French, then that specific pack consists of all the tools for all the countries/regions that utilize that language.


  • If Office was installed by your organization onto your computer, you should contact your IT department in order to install any language packs
  • If you are the administrator and you have deployed a volume-licensed version of Office 2016 to your users, you are able to download an ISO image of any language packs, proofing tools, and language interface packs. You can access this in the Volume Licensing Service Center. 
  • If you are the administrator and you have deployed a volume licensed version of Office 2019 to your users, you are able to also deploy language packs. You can do this through the Office Deployment Tool.
