The offline installer asks for activation after being installed. How do we activate it?

    Rohit Langde - July 19, 2012

    Are you trying it on Windows 7? When asked for activation, login with Live ID to get the Preview version activated.
    On Windows 8 however, Live ID is automatically configured and activated.

This is sooooooooooo good

Raheem - November 5, 2012

I downloaded the 64bit version for my Ms Os, Vista Os and the application doesn’t even load. Do I need to get the 32bit version or what is the problem?

    Rohit Langde - November 5, 2012

    If your OS is 64 bit then any version will do. However, if you are running 32 Bit OS, then MS Office 32 bit is required.

      Raheem - November 5, 2012

      I didn’t see until it was too late that you need at least win7 or win8 for the 2013, but can I use 2012 on vista Os?

        Rohit Langde - November 5, 2012

        Yeah, even I didn’t look at the word “Vista” in your comment. MS Office 2013 isn’t compatible with Windows XP and Vista; you need Windows 7 or 8 to run it.

          Raheem - November 5, 2012

          It’s all good I got multiple computers with tons of different Os’s and I got boot up Os’s
