iCloud Setup can’t continue because Outlook isn’t configured to have a default profile

When you download and configure iCloud for Windows, your photos, videos and even your mail files become easily accessible on all your devices. Sometimes it's not an easy process and you can find your contacts, calendar and task do not sync with Microsoft Outlook as expected. The following error message may appear:

Setup can not continue because Outlook is not configured to have a default profile. Check your Outlook settings and try again.

The iCloud configuration can not continue because Outlook is not configured to have a default profile.

Part of the problem is that Office (version of the Windows Store) has been preinstalled and installation of the Click to Run version from Office.com. To resolve this problem, you can try to install the latest version of Office from Office.com. This should itself delete the Windows Store version of Office. You can ensure that the desired version is deleted by following these steps:

1) Launch PowerShell with Administrator privileges

To open a high PowerShell prompt, in the taskbar search, type PowerShell. Now, see the Windows PowerShell result that appears at the top. When it is visible, right-click it and select Run As Administrator. If you are asked to give your consent, click on the "OK" button.

2) Remove the Outlook component

In the Powershell window, perform the following to remove the Outlook component:

Get-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online | where-object {$_.packagename –like "*Outlook*"} | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online

Then run the following in the same Powershell window –

Get-AppxPackage "*Outlook*" |  Remove-AppxPackage

When finished, open PowerShell without administrator rights and run the above command again.

Get-AppxPackage "*Outlook*" |  Remove-AppxPackage

The action, once confirmed, will remove the installer for all new accounts and the folder currently being used by iCloud.

Restart the PC now, then reinstall or run a repair on your normally installed Office version.

Hope your problem will be solved.
