Microsoft Office Click-to-Run is not a new Microsoft Office “product”. Instead, it is a new way of delivering and updating the programs with which you are already familiar. For more information, see Click-to-Run: Introduction.
If you are affected by a known issue listed below that is specific to Click-to-Run, see Click-to-Run: Switch to using an MSI-based Office edition to learn more about the options that are available.
- Many add-ins might not function as expected when used with Click-to-Run. You might see error messages stating that an add-in failed to load or could not be found.
- Some Microsoft SharePoint functionality targeted at business or enterprise users will not be available, for example:
- The Edit in Datasheet feature is not available. This functionality is provided by Microsoft Access, which is not part of Click-to-Run. Even if Microsoft Access is installed separately, the Edit in Datasheet feature remains unavailable.
- The SharePoint Picture Library is unavailable.
- The PowerPoint Slide Library is unavailable.
- After installing a Microsoft Office Language Pack, you cannot change Help for a program to display in the language of the Language Pack. Help always remains in the language of the Click-to-Run product.
- Sending e-mail messages from third-party applications might not function as expected. You might receive an error message indicating that a default e-mail client is not available.

- When running the Click-to-Run edition of Microsoft Outlook side-by-side with an older version of Outlook, you might experience reduced or unexpected functionality. To avoid these issues, we recommend that you only run one version of Outlook and remove all other versions.
- Search functionality in Outlook is only fully functional for Click-to-Run editions of Outlook. Search is still available, but with reduced functionality for older versions of Outlook.
- You might notice performance issues when alternating between the Click-to-Run edition of Microsoft Outlook and other versions of Outlook.
- Many third-party Microsoft Office add-ins will not function properly with Outlook, for example:
- iTunes Calendar Helper You will not be able to sync Outlook Calendar events via iTunes to your portable device.
- Google Search Toolbar Search functionality provided by Google Search Toolbar will not be available.
- Microsoft Office Communicator is not fully integrated with Outlook. You might not be able to send an e-mail message to a contact or perform other tasks from Office Communicator that depend on Outlook.
- Windows Mobile Device Center or ActiveSync does not detect Outlook as installed. You cannot sync Outlook content, such as Mail, Contacts, or Calendar items, to a mobile device when using Click-to-Run.
- When running the Click-to-Run edition of Outlook, the Indexing Options dialog box in Windows does not allow you to choose specific Outlook stores for indexing. Click-to-Run is a new deployment technology that isolates Office programs from the computer. Because Outlook is isolated from the rest of the computer, search in Windows cannot expose individual Outlook stores to you.

- The Send to OneNote command in Internet Explorer is unavailable.
- Third-party Microsoft OneNote add-ins do not function with OneNote. Because of the add-in model for OneNote, add-ins are not available when using Click-to-Run.
- The Send to OneNote printer is not available on Windows XP. When using OneNote on Windows XP, you might use an alternate method to import content, such as screen capture or clipboard.
