Windows 7: Office Suite 2016 won't sign in.

Did 2013 first this time.
Think i did 2016 first at the time of this thread.
It's a long process and right now, Win 10 setup is working just fine.
So, it might be a while before i decide to do this again.
That, and the fact that activating Windows itself can be a long job too (if you know what i mean).

I'm back!
Just couldn't let this happen without trying again...
Doing all updates again.
Wondering if the fact that Windows 7 SP1 isn't installed yet might have something to do with it?
Where do i get that update?

Anyway, will try installing 2016 first this time (on fresh install).

Update: after latest updates (except for SP1) - with just 2016 installed, username and password don't do the trick.
Ugh!

Outlook 2013 not installed yet.

You will need the SP1 update, there is no point in installing Office until you get Windows SP1 installed & Windows running properly first.

You should read this MS website, which says you can't run Office 2013 & Office 2016 on the one computer, so you will have to choose which version you want to use. It seems that Office 2013 is the only one that has Outlook, so that may be the obvious one.

Install and use different versions of Office on the same PC - Microsoft Office

Once you get Windows running properly, you can install Office 2013. Then you should make sure Office 2013 is brought up to date as well. To get Office 2013 to update, open any Office program, click on File, then click on Account & that will show a box that says Office Updates, click on that & select Update Now. If it's not up to date it will download & install Updates & you can keep on working as updating carries on in the background. You should also use Automatic Updates for Office.

Sorry for the bad news but I found that MS website, while checking on using more than one version of Office.

I use Office 2013 Pro, which has Access, Outlook, One Note, Power Point & all the usual Office programs like Word, Excel etc.. I am not sure what the Standard version contains, although I know it does not contain Access, which is what I needed do I had to buy the Pro version.

Update!

Just did umpteenth fresh install of Win 7 OS -
This time, installed SP1 and Internet Explorer 11 (essential part as well);
then installed Office 2106 (Word, Excel, Onenote) and then Outlook 2013.
All were safely registered with regular Outlook username and p.w. and all are operative!

It was a long journey, and i never would have guessed it to be that hard!
Have had a few more issues going back to Win 7 (things like search index in Outlook 2013 not going in) - but things look promising.
Had a hunch IE 11 had something to do with this.
