Office 2013 : “Something went wrong”, with an error code of 30175-4. [SOLVED]

This week I had an Office 2013 installation what went wrong.

Starting every application gave the error :

The item ‘Word.exe’ that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly.

Do you want to delete this shortcut?

Click on Yes

Then remove office 2013 manually in the software section of the control panel

(You can use appwiz.cpl for quick access )

Then try to reinstall the office 2013 from your office 365 account.

Again I received an error :

“Something went wrong”, with an error code of 30175-4.


Solution :
