"Setup needs to run to configure your Microsoft office program, but setup is already running on your computer installing another program or prompting you for information. You must close this office program until the current setup program has finished running and then start this office program again."

I am getting this any time I startup any OFFICE 2016 program and clicking "OK" shuts it down and I can never get the program to run. WTF.

There is no help on any MS website about this that I have found.

Usually this means you have a (MSOffice) registry key that needs cleared and reset.
Check Superuser.com for instructions on how to reset it (be sure to backup that key first!).
