I disabled the booting Office 365 when Windows boots using AVG PC Tuneup. I find it unnessecary to have an Office service running all the time when I barely use office. But when I disable this, I cannot run a single application of the office suite. All I get is the following error:
Something went wrong We couldn’t start your program. Please try starting it again. If it won’t start, try repairing Office from “program and features” in the control panel.
Repairing the office suite through
Programs and features in the control panel gives me another error:
Something went wrong We’re sorry, but we are unable to start your program. Please ensure it is not disabled by the system. Error Code: 1058-13
So apparently this is because of the Office ClickToRun Service that must be running whenever you want to use any part of Office 365.
I would like to know if it is possible to have Office running only when I start any program of it. Thus blocking it from boot, start it when I run an Office program and kill the service when I close the program.
Some info: My laptop is running Windows 10 x64 Pro.
Installed Office is 2016 (Office 365 University package) with separate Visio 2013 and 2016 installations
