Office 365 license with an Office 2016 installation, WCGW?


Hey guys,

As an employee i have an office 365 E3 license, but the current Office installation on my work PC is “Office professional plus 2016”, the installed office is activated and legit.

now the thing is, my outlook crashes very frequently, especially when i’m searching for emails, or moving tasks between categories “drag and drop”. this has happened before and i’ve tried everything to fix it without success. the only thing that worked was to completely uninstall Office 2016 ProPlus, delete all of the local files, and install office 365 from [office.com](https://office.com)

* why would i keep the current Office 2016? because i have a licensed Visio and Project with it, which i don’t have on Office 365
* things i’ve tried:
* repairing office
* updating windows, updating office
* rebuilding index
* rebuilding pst file

i appreciate if anyone has any idea on this, thanks!

Update: fixed! the only thing that worked was installing an office update KB4022160 *manually*, as mentioned [here](https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/2015318-outlook-2016-crashing-when-opening-email-with-attachment)
