Fix: Windows cannot find IntegratedOffice.exe error while installing Office

Most Windows computers have a copy of Microsoft Office installed on it. Today I was trying to install Office 2013 on one of my old computer running Windows 7. Everything was going smoothly until I came around the IntegratedOffice.exe error while installing this productivity suite on my Windows 7 machine. Following is the screenshot of the error which I was receiving continuously during the installation:

IntegratedOffice.exe-Installation-Error-Office-2013

Windows cannot find IntegratedOffice.exe error

Following is the error description so far:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 15\clientX86\integratedoffice.exe

Windows cannot find ‘C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 15\clientX86\integratedoffice.exe’. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.

As you can see in the image above, there is nothing to help you regarding the solution to fix this error. However, after doing some research, after analysis, I came to know that this issue is due to ClickToRun configuration sitting in the registry. So the fix I tried worked successively to solve this problem, thus here I am sharing it with you:

Using Registry Editor

1. Press Windows Key + R combination, type put Regedt32.exe in Run dialog box and hit Enter to open the Registry Editor.

2. Navigate to the following location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\15.0

IntegratedOffice.exe-Installation-Error-Office-2013-1

3. In the right pane of this location, look for the subkey named ClickToRun, make a right over this and select Delete. In the following dialog box so appears, provide the affirmation:

IntegratedOffice.exe-Installation-Error-Office-2013-2

That’s it! Now close the Registry Editor and reboot the machine. Thus installation of Office 2013 on your machine should now proceed without any hitch.

    Perfect fix. Plus deleting the same key for Office 12 eliminated another error where, during my earlier attempts to install 2013, I receive an error message that a previously installed beta version existed.
