Second Attempt At Installing Office 2016 Preview

After seeing this new entry on my Microsoft Office downloads page:

New Office 2016 DownloadI decided to have another attempt at installing the Office 2016 Preview. I downloaded the new (was it new) build of the preview, I followed the install instructions, but this time receieved this error:

Something Went Wrong

Another gem from Microsoft. Something went wrong. The very definition of descriptive error text. And to provide a second level of detail: “Sorry, we ran into a problem”.

It’s annoying enough that Microsoft can’t get the install program right, without being confronted by useless error messages like this.

Oh well, at some point I will be able to install this damn program, I’m sure!
