On August 1, 2017, Microsoft released the latest update for Office 2016 (MSI installations; version 16.0.4549.1000). This update (KB4011051) includes a bug that causes the eXtyles Paragraph Styling palette and the Auto-Redact dialog to crash. When you click the Style Paragraphs button or the Auto-Redact button, the respective dialogs fail to load. All other eXtyles features continue to function.

The corresponding update for Office 365 and Office 2016 Click-to-Run installations (Version 1707, Build 8326.2058) was first released towards the end of July; the date of this update depends on the user’s Update Channel. In these versions of Word, only the Paragraph Styling palette is affected by the update.

Office 2016 MSI Solution

Update (08-24-2017)

On August 22, Microsoft released an update to the Office 2016 MSI installation. We have confirmed that this update resolves the bug and does not affect other eXtyles functions.

To resolve this issue, please download and install update 4011093 (KB4011093).

Please note that the Microsoft Download Center update is for the Microsoft 2016 version of the Microsoft Installer (.msi). It does not apply to Office 2016 click-to-run versions, such as Office 365.

Uninstall Updates in Office ‘Click to Run’

A spate of recent updates caused problems in Outlook and the short-term fix is to uninstall the update; however, updates can’t be uninstalled from the Click-To-Run installations of Office, and almost all users have the Click-To-Run installation.

Instead, you will need to revert to an earlier version.

First, you need to disable Office updates. If you don’t disable updates, the problem update will reinstall itself. You can disable updates from the File menu in any Office application.

In Outlook (this is an Outlook help site after all), go to FileOffice AccountUpdate Options and click on Disable Updates.

Next, create an appointment in your calendar for 30 days from now to remind yourself to check for updates. In many cases, the “bad” file will be removed or replaced with a corrected update, and you can allow Office to install updates without reinstalling “trouble” after a few weeks have passed.

Now you’re ready to roll back the click-to-run installation.

Right click on the Start button and choose Command Prompt (Admin). If you don’t see Command Prompt on the menu, you’ll need to type cmd on the Start screen to find the Command Prompt then right click on it and choose Run as Administrator
