For those that encounter this message, here is how to resolve it.

The error for me occurred on Outlook 2016 when trying to run the application.

There are a number of workarounds online but the fix is straight forward -

Insert the Microsoft Office 2016 Install DVD in to your PC, and then Run the Office 2016 repair option.

The repair takes a few minutes. Reboot the computer when it finishes. Then simply open Outlook when back on the desktop.
