Office 2016 0x80041015 Product Install System Error Message

We have been testing Windows 10 and Office 2016 since their release. This is one of the system error messages we've come across with Office Professional Plus 2016: "Sorry, we ran into a problem while trying to install the product key. If this keeps happening, you should try repairing your office product. (System error: 0x80041015)"

After uninstalling and re-installing, troubleshooting, and searching online for a solution, we spoke directly with Microsoft and received the following solution.
  1. Download and run this script to uninstall Office 2016.
  2. Reboot.
  3. Install Microsoft OneNote on its own using this link.
  4. After OneNote is installed, activate it.
  5. Install your Office Professional Plus 2016 software. (If you have Microsoft Office 365, go into the portal and download it from there.)
This should fix the system error. Microsoft is aware of this issue and are working to resolve it. For now this is the work around.

VP Dimitri Miaoulis now spends
90% of his day standing
We've all read the articles and statistics - sitting is bad. According to CNN, sitting for 8-12+ hours a day increases your risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 90%. According to NPR, exercising won't even offset the harm of sitting at your desk all day - "These are independent variables — excess sitting and the presence or absence of exercise." So Baroan Technologies decided it was time to stand up.
