Be aware that the update in Download Center applies to Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2013. It doesn’t apply to the Office 2013 Click-to-Run editions such as Microsoft Office 365 Home
To determine whether your Office installation is Click-to-Run or MSI-based, follow these steps:
- Open an Office 2013 application, such as Microsoft Word 2013.
- On the File menu, select Account.
- For Office 2013 Click-to-Run installations, an Update Options item is displayed. For MSI-based installations, the Update Options item isn’t displayed.
You will found the file groove.exe here: X:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15 for Office 2013 and X:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office16 for Office 2016
So the version for Office 2013 of the file should be 15.0.4907.1000 or higher.
And the version for Office 2016 of the file should be 16.0.4504.1000 or higher.
