Error message popping up frequently, even when no Office program is running

I've been getting an error message every 30 minutes or so with this message, even when no Microsoft Office programs are running.

"C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftOfficeHub...\LocalBridge.exe

The parameter is incorrect."

I tried both the offline and online repair of Office and rebooting and the error message persists.  I can still use all Office programs as normal, but the error popping up often is very annoying and I'd like to get rid of it.

[Moved from: Office / Unknown/other / Windows 10 / Office 365 Home]


Hello! The error comes from the integrated "Microsoft Office Apps" (i do not mean Mircosoft Office 365 oder other versions). The mentioned "Office" is part of windows 10.

There are 2 possible solutions:

Solution 1: Reset the App

Go to "Settings/Apps" scroll to "Office" choose "Advanced options" und select "reset" in the upcoming dialog

Solution 2: Uninstall the App

What helped me: Uninstall the App called "Office" (NOT "Microsoft Office 365" oder other versions)

You can use the other installed Version of e.g. "Microsoft Office 365" as usual.
