Hi there,

The error "Precondition failed" is most likely caused due to some enviromnnemt preconditions not being met. could you please take a look at the pre-requisites on this page and make sure that you meet all the criteria?

Hi there,

Those errors relate to the Office Connector, so at a guess I'd say it could be that there's either an incompatible or corrupted file? I would need to see the full error to tell you exactly what is going on, but you should be able to look further up the stack trace and find out which page/file is being referenced when the error occurs and identify the problematic file. If you need further help debugging this you can open a ticket with Support and we'll take a look at it for you.

All the best,
John

Hi John,

This is the full error. Please assist us in fixing this error. Had raised a support ticket but that did not help much.
