Since using the repair tool is out of the question, as the error code 30147-45 can crop up there as well, we need to dive a little deeper to troubleshoot this error. In that regard, using the Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant or performing a clean boot can be useful.

Below, I have addressed all the corresponding solutions based on the probable causes in great detail. So, read on and don’t skip over any vital method if you want to resolve the error properly.

Here’s how to fix Microsoft Office error code 30147-45:

1. Use SaRA

Let’s be honest: the built-in repair tool for Microsoft Office has its own limitations. And when you hit those limitations, you will get an error message with an error code 147-0 in Microsoft Office.

In that case, you have to bring out the big guns. Microsoft has already prepared for such scenarios and developed the Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant, or SaRA for short, which picks up the pace where the repair tool fails.

Follow these steps to utilize SaRA and resolve the 30147-45 error code in MS Office:

  • Download SaRA from the official website and unzip the RAR file.
  • Open the installation folder and double-click on the installation file(SaraSetup.exe).
  • Complete the installation process and run the support tool.
  • Select Office & Office Apps and hit
  • Choose I have Office installed, but I’m having trouble uninstalling it from the existing problem list.
  • Click on Next.trouble-uninstalling-office-sara

Now, let SaRA uninstall the Microsoft Office client installed on your PC and reboot your device. Then, install the latest version and check if you can run the Microsoft apps without facing the aforementioned or 30045-44 error code.

2. Run a System File Scan

As I have previously mentioned, the error code can pop up due to a corrupted system or Office installation file, especially when you’re trying to open or repair the client. Fortunately, the easiest way to fix this issue is by running the system file checker(SFC) tool on your Windows PC.

Here’s how:

  • Press Windows Key+R to launch the Run dialog box.
  • Type sfc /scannow and hit the Enter

That’s it. The tool will now automatically detect any damaged or missing system files and repair them. If it doesn’t show anything, your computer’s files are not at fault for this error. In that case, move on to the next method.

3. Use the Microsoft Office Repair Tool in a Clean Boot State

There’s a good chance that a third-party service is preventing the Office repair tool from functioning properly. If that’s the case, you may face the Microsoft Office error code 30016-13 or 30147-45.

To prevent such conflicts, you can perform a clean boot and then run the repair utility. Here’s how:

  • Type msconfig in the Windows Search bar and hit Enter.
  • Go to the Services tab and tick the box for Hide all Microsoft services.
  • Uncheck the boxes for crucial services, like drivers and such.
  • Hit Disable all > Apply > OK.disable-third-party-services-windows
  • Restart your PC and go to Control Panel > Uninstall a program.control-panel-uninstall-program
  • Select Microsoft Office and click on Change from the top ribbon.
  • Select Quick Repair >

Now, the repair tool should work as intended. After you’re done, go back to the service config window and enable all the third-party services.

4. Disable Anti-Virus

Similar to third-party services, the third-party anti-virus programs that you’ve installed on your PC can mistakenly detect Microsoft Office services as malware. As a result, these services fail to execute their operations properly.

So, to be sure that the 30147-45 error in Microsoft Office isn’t happening due to the anti-virus programs, consider temporarily disabling or uninstalling them from your PC.

This method can also come in handy when the MS Office activation wizard isn’t working.

5. Allow Microsoft Office Through Windows Firewall

Although it’s rare, the Windows Firewall can sometimes stop the Microsoft Office apps/services from establishing an internet connection.

As a result, when you select the Online Repair option from the repair tool, you end up getting the Internet connection needed. Office error code 30147-45 message. The only way to resolve this error is by allowing Microsoft Office in the Windows Firewall prompt.

To do so:

  • Click on the Windows Search bar and type allow an app.
  • Select Allow an app through Windows Firewall from the search results.
  • Scroll down and find Microsoft Office from the service list.
  • Make sure both the Public and Private boxes are ticked for Microsoft Office apps.
  • If not, click on the Change settings and modify them
  • Hit OK.

That should do it.

Now, for added measures, disable the proxy settings or VPNs from your computer and restart your PC. Then, launch any Microsoft Office program to check if the error has been resolved.
