WAC KB2878219 – Installation of this package failed – Error 1646

April 14, 2014 by spjeff

Tonight I came across the below error message.  Honestly I have no idea how to fix, but I wanted to post because I found zero search results and figured somebody else might stumble across the same and could leave a comment with their findings.   Overall, the issue seems to be this new patch (KB2878219) will not install because a previous patch (KB2850032) won’t uninstall. 

 

 

This might require a full uninstall and reinstall to fix.   http://blogs.technet.com/b/office_web_apps_server_2013_support_blog/archive/2014/04/08/how-to-remove-office-web-apps-2013-with-service-pack-1-and-apply-security-update-2878219.aspx
