Preferred Solution: Cant Install Microsoft Office 2013

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Cant Install Microsoft Office 2013

The "Click to Run" only works for the 32 bit version as far as I know. If you are only using Office 2013 for home or small business use Microsoft recommend that the 32 bit version be installed, as there are actually more features available on the 32 bit version. Of course the 32 bit version works perfectly on Windows 7 x64. I use the 32 bit office 2013 Pro on my Windows 7 x64.
If you wish to install the 64 bit version, load the Office DVD & then Open to explore the files & if you check these you will find the 64 bit version, then double click on that & it will install the 64 bit version.

Howdy all,

This is my first post on the forum! I've had an extremely frustrating problem and can't figure it out. I hope someone here can help me out! In short office 2013 will not install on my computer. It starts going and at some point it just says there's an error and quits. It doesn't give me an error number or anything, it just stops. Here's a little context though:

I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13, and overall I've been very satisfied with the computer. However, it only came with a 128 GB SSD hard drive, so I decided to add another 128 GB SSD in the second hard drive slot. I got it in the computer and it works perfectly as far as I can tell.The only other thing I changed on my computer was to move the music library to the new hard drive. After adding the hard drive, I tried to use office some time later and it wouldn't work. I tried repairing it with the install disk, and it didn't work. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and it didn't work. It always just stops at some point as I said above. Is there a reason adding a hard drive or moving a library would effect Office?

Thanks in advance!

Willm

Answer:Microsoft Office 2013 will not install

Hi Willm,

welcome to Eight Forums! Good to have you aboard.

About your problem. It is not a problem related to you adding an extra SSD and moving a library. That stuff doesn't influence the Office installation.

Before I can give you advice I need more information. Please provide the following info:
Is it a plain Office pack or the Click-To-Run Office pack?Do you try installing it from a DVD disc or from a standalone executable?Where did you buy the licence?What kind of virusprotection are you using? (i.e. Windows Defender, McAfee, Norton etc.)
Greetz,

Rover

Whenever I try to install Microsoft Office 2013, the progress bar reaches full then reverses about half way then I get an error saying "Microsoft setup bootstrapper has stopped working". I have already tried clean booting, safe mode, turning off AV, using repair kit. I tried installing Microsoft .NET framework but it said my OS already comes with it, however I cannot find it in Programs and Features.

INFO
-I do not press "Install" I use a custom install settings
-I have autorun disabled so I open it by running setup.exe as admin
-I have the preview evaluation version
-32 bit version will install however I want 64 bit because my computer is a 64 bit OS

I have reinstalled my Microsoft office 2013 pro plus 64bit because i bought an SSD that replaced my HDD.

Last time i installed this on the HDD it took up between 2-3 GB of space on the drive.
When you look up system requirements for office 2013 it will tell you 3GB space required, 64bit or 32bit.

This time around installing it and after all the updates through Windows update, it took about 6 GB.
I am wondering why, is this right ? Is this possibly due to service pack updates till now ?

Thought i read last ones were end of July 2014.

I did do a Disk Cleanup, even removed updates in download folder in C: Windows/Software Distribution.

I also know it creates a hidden folder on C: drive called MSOCache, this only holds about 830MB.
Told by some it is required to be there in case of a install repair and updates.
This is not that much of the amount that i am in question of.

Well i can not seem to find any answers online to verify if it is correct to be taking this much space up, if so i am fine, just wondering if it is right.

Answer:install of Microsoft Office 2013 Pro Plus

Update on this topic, talked to Microsoft support they tell me this is normal to be this size and also due to my system settings and specs.

Since i installed it again, was 57 updates, although i can not see how big each update is now, do not think i downloaded 3GB of updates unless they expanded during installation.

Said something else about language packs possibly being cause, do not see any of those in the updates. When i reinstalled it i usually do not uncheck anything not to be installed, just all the defaults.

Revo uninstaller
shows it at 1279.80MB but again not including updates and service pack.

I just can't install Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013 which I downloaded from it's official web site.
I'm using Windows 8.1 64 bit right here.
I can install Microsoft Office 365 with no problem (but I've uninstalled it for some reasons) but this one is just too much...

I can run the installer, but when it is in installing process, then one of these things happen :
1. Says "The file powerpoint.en-us\PowerPointMUI.msi could not be found
But I can see in that folder that that msi file is really exist.
2. Says "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013 encountered an error during setup,
3. Crashes.

I've tried using clean booting, or compatibility troubleshooting like trying it on Vista or Win 7, but really nothing works.

So I uninstalled my office 2013, because it has some issues. I uninstalled if with Revo Uniintsaller and I even scanned it after and delete all the left overs.
Now I am trying to install it back again and I am not able to.

Hello Everyone,
First, thank you all for making this free forum for helping others, this is my first post on EightForums, I was in SevenForums before and I upgraded from Windows 7 Ultimate x86 to Windows 8 Pro with Media Center x64 5 months ago.
Anyway, let's talk about my problem, I installed Office 2013 Pro Plus 4 months ago, last 2 weeks I tried to uninstall it (for some bugs) but it didn't fully uninstall because of "Printer Spooler" service was not available (It was an issue but I resolved it last week). So I tried to uninstall but I didn't find Office 2013 in Add/Remove Programs, I never-minded and tried to install Office today, it was 99% finished but it rolls back and give me an error "Microsoft Professional Plus encountered an error during setup" and I click "Finished" then the setup says "Microsoft Bootstrapper has stopped working" so I read in the internet and people says that some registry keys is still there so I tried the Office 2013 Uninstall Fix-It program where it is here but it doesn't find anything! So I found a video on how to uninstall Office 2010 manually, and I used it on Office Pro Plus 2013 but nothing! I opened Event Viewer and found the Office 2013 log:

Microsoft have announced the UK selling price for Microsoft Office 2013 - a whopping 390 if you want the 'Professional' package! Interestingly though they have also announced a subscription based service so that instead of buying the software, you can pay either an annual or monthly subscription and use all the latest Office products. Office 365 will cost 79.99 a year or 7.99 a month - a discounted annual rate of 59.99 is available for students too. Subscribers are also provided with 20GB of SkyDrive cloud storage for their documents and 60 minutes of Skype calls per month.

Given that the subscription allows you to use the software on up to 5 PCs then for some people it might be a worthwhile investment.

Interesting article looking at whether it is worth subscribing on Time:

Should You Subscribe to Microsoft Office 365?

Alternatively you can just use Open Office which is free!

Last April (2016) I purchased Office 2013 pro from NerdsforLess and received a product key which I applied to download from MS website. A couple weeks ago this product was deactivated by MS. I could not re-apply product key either over the Internet or by phone. I talked to MS tech support who told me that MS had deactivated my Office software because the product key had been leaked and that the seller (NerdsforLess) would give me a replacement key. Bob, at NerdsforLess, denied he knew anything about the key being leaked (he actually accused me of leaking the key--yeah right, a personal, professional person is going to sell a key as opposed to a large discount reseller!) and refused to refund my purchase price or provide me with a replacement key. My question is: How can MS justify deactivating my product key when I have proof I paid for the product and there is no way to know who leaked the key? MS did not consult me on this and as far as I can tell, did not research the leaking. So how come I get screwed when I played by the rules (paying for a product and properly registering it)? Thank you for any comments.

If you have vaild license keys, you can go to microsoft.com and enter the license key.
Once entered, it recognizes which version you bought and subsequently lets either download a full exe or you can pay for them to mail you a DVD.

You have to activate the software some way. The offline activation has you do it by telephone.

Nickel and diming our way to the cloud

Office retail licenses could... up until 2013 ... be moved from computer to computer.

Apparently...not any more. Check out the 2013 retail EULA:

Office 2013 Software License Agreement - Office Watch:
http://news.office-watch.com/t/n.aspx?a=1782
Under our license we grant you the right to install and run that one
copy on one computer (the licensed computer) for use by one person at a
time, but only if you comply with all the terms of this agreement. Our
software license is permanently assigned to the licensed computer
You may not transfer the software to another computer or user.

No point in retail just buy OEM. MS is really desperate for people to sign up for their cloud dream.
 

Answer:Microsoft Office 2013 Joke

I think retail still gives you 1 computer + 1 laptop install (in practice at least). And of course you can change hardware as much as you want. OEM is more restrictive, but I understand your point.

I've been trying to get my new computer going with mixed results. I'm running Windows 8.1 pre-installed. I bought the Microsoft Office 2013 one computer product. I downloaded and installed it with no problems. Used it once or twice during the day just to make sure it seemed alright. Then I had a different problem with the computer and tried doing a system restore. The restore point took it back to before MSOffice was installed (apparently) as I don't see it on here anywhere. Keep in mind I've VERY new to Windows 8.1, been using XP for years so maybe I'm just missing something. Anyway I can't find it and I can't figure out how to reinstall. When I try to reinstall by going to the same install screen I used before, it says it can't install, but doesn't really explain why.

Please help. I'm soooooo tired of messing with this. I just want a working computer!

Thanks,

Answer:Microsoft Office 2013 installation

Guess I should add, when I try to undo the restore, I encounter a problem with possible security issues. It goes round and round saying I may have viruses, Trojans, etc. This is from some kind of MS security something. I'm using the McAfee that came with my computer and as long as I'm on this version of the restore/undo restore, McAfee says I'm protected. On the other it won't let me do anything unless I buy whatever product their trying to sell.

Answer:Microsoft Office 2013 not displaying very well

Hi Darksky40, welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

You could try a System Restore to go back to a point before you deleted whatever it was that caused the current problem.

You could try an Office Repair. To do that open Control Panel, select Programs & Features, then scroll down to Microsoft Office, right click on it & select Change & this will provide a couple of Repair options.

If none of the above work you will have to reinstall Office.

Hello, and my apologies if this has been addressed elsewhere.  Lenovo T440p.It was purchased with Win 7 Pro and Microsoft Office 2013 Pro installed by Lenovo. Last week (Oct 2018) I used the online Microsoft tool to do a free upgrade to Win 10.I did not have to download any media files or use a CD... everything was done online.  Win 10 Pro is working fine.Office 2013 Pro is not... it launches, but I get a nag-message about needing to activate it.   Unfortunately I do not have the OEM-provided product key info.Nor was the product key resigsterd via a Lenovo account to which I have access.  Lenovo support has been of no help (the CSR indiacated that there was no product key info that she could find in the archived order info on her end).Microsoft has been equally unhelpful. Any chance that there might be a way to find my OEM-provided MS Office 2013 product key on the PC itself? Many thanks!

My knowledge of software is extremely limited.  I eventually migrated from a desk top computer to a lap top, only because I travel a lot and do need access to my computer.  The laptop has Windows 10 and Office Professional Plus 2013.  The office is the 64 bit version.  All was installed by experts and works well.  I am a lazy guy by nature so try to automate everything.  This way no finger trouble or misfiling of documents.  The software providers wrote various programmes for me to do this all, and has worked 100% for the last 10 years.  They use a Microsoft product called ODBC.
 
But I have a major and very serious problem. ODBC only works on a 32 bit system not 64 bit.  I must uninstall the Office 64 bit and reinstall the Office 32 bit.  Also no problem and again I would get experts to do this, as the chances of me screwing it up are extremely likely.  I also believe that you can never have enough sex, beer, money or backups, so those gaps are blocked.  My problem is, I have been told, is that the emails I have on the Outlook 64 bit version I will not be able to read on the Microsoft Outlook 32 bit version.  I don't want to lose any emails, as I do have reason to go back on emails pretty regularly.  I try to handle and "sign off" all emails immediately, but often I would at a later date have a query relating to a prior email.  If I haven't got the email I am up the creek without a paddle.

Answer:Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013 - 64 bit and 32 bit compatability.

Don't know where you heard that, but it's not true. Your emails are saved in a .pst file on your computer, and that file can be read by both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Outlook.
 
In any event, I'm wiling to bet the emails are also saved on the mail server you are using, and the mail server will work with either 32-bit or 64-bit. Once you open Outlook, they will either re-populate from the mail server, or you can just import the .pst file.
 
In short, no email conversion is necessary.

Some time ago I was using Office 2003 and I read or was told that it would not or was not being supported any more. So I bought Office 2013. However, for whatever reason (I don't remember) I left Office 2003 on my pc and installed Office 2013. (Maybe I was afraid of losing my documents or whatever so I left 2003 on the pc) I found that with both Office 2003 and Office 2013 every time I would open a Word file it was opened in 2003 ( I would need to use the "Open With" option to get my docs to open in Word 2013. Since I have now gotten used to working with Word 2013 I figured that it is time to make Office 2003 go bye bye! I have been using Outlook 2013 even though Outlook 2003 is still installed on my pc. I don't seem to have any problems with Outlook 2013 but I would like to uninstall Outlook 2003 as well (I assume that when I uninstall Office 2003 then Outlook 2003 will be gone as well) So I  want to uninstall Office 2003 and leave 2013 on my pc. Are there any problems with doing this?  Will all of my files be saved? Or do I need to back up any files? If someone can guide me through this I would really appreciate it.Edit: Moved topic from Windows 10 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Hello, I installed Microsoft Office 2013 Professional Plus about a month ago. I thought I made a copy of all of its contents that were in a file folder: Word, Excel, OneNote, etc. Unfortunately someone jumped on my computer and did something with this file folder. I cannot find the file folder of shortcuts on my PC. I just need to locate the file folder in my C drive so I can make another shortcut folder on my desktop. I don't think they're missing or deleted from my system as it still pulls up Word when I click on a document. I imagine that someone deleted the file folder on my desktop for some reason and I may need to locate each individual program to get back that folder. I tried copying the Microsoft Office folder from my C drive as well as Microsoft Office 2015 but no dice. Any help is much appreciated and thank you in advance.

Answer:My Microsoft Office 2013 Has Disappeared From My Desktop

Check the Recycle Bin. If they were deleted they should be in there and you can restore from the Recycle Bin.

Or if this is recent, run System Restore using an available restore point that is BEFORE they did whatever they did. System Restore can be accessed from Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools.

System restore will not delete any user data or e-mail.

My little HP TS10 Notebook came with Windows 8.1 and Office Home & Student 2013.  All was great until I went to Windows 10.  My PC slowed and finally froze constantly.  I reloaded Windows 10 but the problem continued.  I then went back to Windows 8.1 but had to reload that several times before my PC would work properly.  My PC is working well now with 8.1 - BUT. because I had to reload Office Home & Student 2013 so many times (all on the same PC) I am being told that I have an unlicensed product and therefore my Office 2013 has been deactivated and does not work. Again, I had to activate this multiple times (only on the same PC) because of problems with Windows 10 (and a few with 8.1).  Who in Microsoft can I contact to get this issue resolved? Thank you!!!

Good Afternoon, Friends!  Please, tell me what Microsoft Office 2013 Product key Activation is necessary to use that I could to use Microsoft Office 2013? My laptop is G50-45. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Microsoft Office 2013 Product key Activation

hi DariaFonBet,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
If that's the preloaded Microsoft Office 2013 then you can activate it in two ways, one is by using an evaluation key (60d ays) and the second is by using a retail key.  If you didn't buy the Microsoft 2013 and you want to utilize the 60days free trial then you will need to click "Try office for a limited time" when launching MS Office.
 
If can't activate the trial period using the above steps then you will need to uninstall that version of MS Office 2013 and download an Office Professional Plus 2013 evaluation copy. (you will need a microsoft account to sign-in). During the download, you should be given a trial key.

Now obviously the latter are for one PC only, but if all the tales that we are hearing lately are true, that people are moving away from the desktop onto tablets and the like and not needing full office etc capability, then most people will only have one desktop in the house.

To that end, one licence would be more than enough and would be sufficient for many years to come. That then questions the need for Office 365, which locks you into a subscription service, ostensibly forever, and with potential price increases as well.

That kind of indicates that the standalone version of Office may well be the best option for most people, rather than Office 365.

Greetings,

I'm a former IT Systems Technician, and my girlfriend is a work-from-home writer. I've recently migrated her PC's original processor and ram from an HP motherboard to an ASRock board, linking the original WD Caviar Blue 1TB drive to the board as a secondary drive to collect documents and storage from, while running Windows 8.1 (up to date) on a Seagate Barracuda 250GB for the main OS and programs drive.

With those specs out there in the open, now it's time to get to the root of the problem.

As a work-from-home writer, my girlfriend depends on the ability to save her documents to Microsoft's OneDrive and upload them to her publisher, but with this error showing up, she cannot get them to save. I have never seen such a message in my many years of IT service, and I'm completely baffled.

I am the administrator... So now I turn to you guys for help.

I'd be a bit wary of Office 2013. I read that Microsoft has changed the licencing so that Office 2013 is licensed for a single PC only and that the license may never be transferred. Which means if you upgrade or buy a new computer, you need to buy Office again!

I want the hotkey togo to Onenote. How can I do this?

Answer:Hotkey clash between Windows 8.1 and Microsoft Office 2013

Are you trying to use Office from the Metro/Start screen, or from Desktop? Screen capture has not changed. It is still Fn Prtsc.

I bought a new laptop to replace my old laptop. I want to transfer my copy of Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 software from the old laptop to new laptop. I understand that I can transfer the Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 software from the Microsoft Software license terms. It read as follows:

Can I transfer or reassign the software to another user or computer?
You may not transfer the software to another user. You may transfer the software directly to a third party only as installed on the licensed computer, with the Certificate of Authenticity label and this agreement. Before the transfer, that party must agree that this agreement applies to the transfer and use of the software. You may not retain any copies. You may reassign this software license to a different computer any number of times, but not more than one time every 90 days. If you reassign, that other computer becomes the ?licensed computer.? If you retire the licensed computer due to hardware failure, you may reassign the license sooner.Click to expand...

If I interpret the above right, I am free to install the copy of Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 into the new laptop. My question would be, how do I go about doing that? Do I need to call Microsoft to tell them I am installing Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 into the new laptop? Do I uninstall Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 from the old laptop first? Or do I install on the new laptop, activate it for the new laptop and... Read more

I need help on retrieving a microsoft office product key.

I'd upgraded my sister's laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 10 without saving any of its files (clean install). Now I was told that she does not know her microsoft office keys.

Is there any way for me to retrieve the keys? It's a student key which was given by her Uni and she does not keep the keys.

Answer:Help retrieving Microsoft Office 2013 product keys.

Backup? Otherwise ask the university.

Microsoft said incidents of macro-based malware hiding in Office documents has steadily been on the rise in 2016. In the enterprise, Microsoft reports, 98 percent of Office-targeted threats still use old-school macro-based attacks

Hi all, I reccently purchased Microsoft Office 2013 Pro and everything was fine, but now I cannot locate it in my programs. There's two folders--Microsoft Office and Microsoft Office Tools--but neither folder contains anything. I know it's still on my laptop because I can still pull up documents in word, I just can't locate how to begin a document, spreadsheet, etc. All I want is a shortcut on my desktop. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

Answer:Microsoft Office 2013 Disapeared From Programs/Desktop

Hello Jsn,

If you like, you could manually create new shortcuts from their .exe files located in the folder below.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hey,

I have a problem with my laptop when trying to re-install Office 2013 preview edition - basically the initial install failed for some reason and can I can neither remove or install this software leaving me in some sort of Microsoft limbo.

Someone I know suggested logging onto the "my account" section of the Microsoft site and actually deactivating the install however that has not solved the problem?

CCleaner has also been run to try and remove any redundant registry entries however again that has not solved my problem.

My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64 (Official)

Thanks

Answer:office 2013 install failed now cant re-install or remove

Couple of things you can try. Revo Uninstaller Pro has a free 30 day trial. The forced uninstall option should remove the Office 2013 including left over registry entries.

Revo Uninstaller Pro - Uninstall Software, Remove Programs easily, Forced Uninstall

Or you could try the Microsoft Fix It. If that doesn't work there are also instructions for manual removal.

Uninstall Microsoft Office 2013 or Office 365

Hi, I've recently purchased 2 lenovo g505 laptops and I still haven't activated or used all the features. I'm trying to activate microsoft office but I'm having much difficulty. There's a shortcut icon on the desktop of my laptop to activate ms office 2013. It's asking for me to enter a product key which I can't find anywhere. I've checked every inch of my laptop, all the packaging it came in and the manuals. I've seen product keys on other brand new laptops located next to the touch pad and others near the battery. Aren't all brand new laptops suppose to come with a product key?? Aren't the laptops I purchased suppose to include a free version of MS Office?? Where is my product key??????

Answer:Lenovo G505 Microsoft Office 2013 Activation Product Key

hi Black_Rose,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Looking at the preloaded softwares for the Ideapad G505, this unit comes with a Office 2013 Trial. If you specifically purchased a license for MS Office 2013, you should have a product key card as stated in this article (the MS Office 2013 purchase should also be on the receipt). If you can't find it, you may need to contact the place of purchase.
 
To get a 60-day trial of office, you will need to do the following
1. Uninstall MS Office 2013 from Control Panel > Programs or run the MS Office 2013 Uninstaller
2. Download Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013 and follow the instructions on how to obtain a product key (you will need to sign-in using a hotmail / outlook / windows live email)
 
 
Regards
