Right click the installer and select Troubleshoot compatibility. Select troubleshoot program and select "the program worked in earlier versions of Windows....", next, select Windows 7 and select next. Try installing it now.

I tried this and got an error message that Troubleshooter would not run. However I successfully installed Office Starter on W10.

You need this update - click here know it is for 32 bit versions but it works. Right click on original installer for Office Starter and "Run as Administrator"

Once finished run the Patch, reboot, look for MS Office Starter (English) in the all apps list and open Word, accept licence and that's it.
