Had this question 2
Adam_W_ asked on

I receive the message, "You must quit the application” when installing an Office for Mac update.

When I try to install an “Office for Mac” update, I get the following error message: “You must quit the following application before you can continue. This installation cannot be completed while the following software is running.”

What should I do?

This indicates that there are programs running that may interfere with the update setup. You must quit them before continuing.  Click on the product icon and then click Quit.
