Error 1406 during Microsoft Office 2016 setup

By | 19.06.2017

If you encounter this error during the Microsoft Office 2016 setup (default log path is %temp%):

MSI(ERROR): ‘Error 1406. Setup cannot write the value Class to the registry key \Software\Classes\CLSID\{CD7791B9-43FD-42C5-AE42-8DD2811F0419}\InprocServer32\ Verify that you have sufficient permissions to access the registry or contact Microsoft Product Support Services (PSS) for assistance. For information about how to contact PSS, see C:\Windows\TEMP\Setup000009b0\PSS10R.CHM.

You’ll find several possible solutions like secedit, Microsoft FixIt’s and so on. None of them worked for me.

The cause was in our case a corrupt .Net Framework. A simple repair installation of .Net Framework followed by a reboot resolved it.
