Let’s try to fix Failed Launching Office Customization Tool Error 0x8007139f Issue with SCCM. The error 0x8007139f is tricky, and it’s not an SCCM related error/issue. This error normally occurs during software updates download and installations.
I received this Failed Launching Office Customization Tool Error while creating Office 2021 client package. So, this scenario is nothing to do with a Windows updates installation, etc.
I checked the event logs to get more details about related issues. I know the Office Customization Tool requires internet access and the internet access is already available from the SCCM primary server where I got this error.

Troubleshooting Error 0x8007139f
Let’s see what the options are to troubleshoot the error 0x8007139f. I have tried all the basic troubleshooting options available on Windows PCs and Servers. I got this error on the Windows server 2022, and the Server is updated with the latest CU patches.
I checked the event logs to find out any related errors or issues. There is no errors or warning in the System, Setup, and Application event logs of Server 2022. I also tried to close the SCCM admin console and start again without any success.
Now, it’s time to check whether the internet is accessible from the Server or not. Yes, I could confirm the internet is working, and even I was able to launch Office Customization Tool – https://config.office.com/ from the Microsoft Edge browser.
I kept Microsoft Edge as the default browser for the Windows server 2022.
I thought of running the following PowerShell script to fix the issues with Gaming Services. I know this is not applicable for Server operating systems such as 2022.
NOTE! – Error 0x80073D26 or 0x8007139F occurs when you install or start Gaming Services on a Windows 10 device (and potentially for Windows 11 PCs as well).

Remove-Item -Path “HKLM:\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\GamingServicesNet” -recurse
