Office Online Server 2016 Install and Update for Universal C Runtime in Windows

You may get this error if you are installing Office Online Server 2016 on Windows 2012 R2 Data center.

There are two ways to fix it, either install the below KB or do the full server update if you are setting up a new server , like in this example.

Office Online Server 2016

As soon as I’ve done the server update and ran the setup again I don’t see this error anymore and the installation goes smooth.
