Microsoft Office Click to Run
In many cases, you can install Office, Project, and Visio on the same computer. But there are some combinations of Office, Project, and Visio that can’t be installed together on the same computer.
What governs whether an installation scenario is supported are these two rules:
- You can’t install two products together that have the same version but use different installation technologies.
- You can’t install two products of different versions together if both products use Click-to-Run as the installation technology and those products have overlapping Office applications.
In this case, i’ve got the error when install Microsoft Project 2019 Volume in the same computer has Microsoft 365 apps installed.
How to Fix This Product Can’t Be Installed
The root of the issue is Project 2019 using Channel=”PerpetualVL2019″, that doesn’t match with Office 365. As you can see, the installed Office 365 apps using Current Channel.
