Preferred Solution: I want to install office 2016 over 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.)

I have recently installed Office Professional Plus 2016 (the full package, with nothing left out, as well as Outlook 2016). However, I recently discovered that Outlook 2016 doesn't support the Business Contact Manager addin.

So, can I install only Outlook 2013 (and BCM) alongside Office 2016, without removing/breaking either? Does anyone else have this setup working without issues?

Thanks!

Office 2016 Installation Routine Deleting Older Stand-alone Apps






I can't say I wasn't warned. I was part way through installing Microsoft Office 2016 on my primary workstation when I got a message that said, "Stop, you should wait to install Office 2016." The error message went on to say that if I decided to continue anyway, my copy of Microsoft Visio Standard 2013 would be removed. Since I had the original disk from when I purchased the software, I went ahead. Bad move. It turns out that when Microsoft says that Visio 2013 won't work with Office 2016, it means it won't even have the chance to work. Any attempt to reinstall the software will be thwarted. The fact that you paid for the software is beside the point. You're basically out of luck. When I went to the Microsoft community forums, which is where Microsoft handles much of its tech support, I discovered that I wasn't alone. Apparently hundreds of people who'd purchased stand-alone Microsoft Office products were affected, and they weren't happy about it.

Furthermore, the problem extended far beyond Visio. Users with Microsoft Project, Publisher, Access, InfoPath and SharePoint Designer were also affected. Likewise, Microsoft customers who purchased Office Apps that are normally part of Office suites but may have been purchased separately, such as Outlook 2013, were also affected.

Since upgrading my main desktop to Windows 10, I began having trouble with my Office 2013 installation. I would get the "swirling circle" and the "application has stopped responding" error messages very frequently. I was able to buy the Office 2016 suite for $10 through my employer (Microsoft HUP) and since upgrading the application, I have not seen the error. Of course, I've only had Office 2016 on my PC for one day, so I'll keep checking to see if the problem returns. Has anyone else had issues with Office 2013 and Win10? Thanks!

Answer:Office 2013 issues, upgraded to Office 2016...

In fact Office is working nicely for me in Windows 10. I had PCs with Office 2007 and even with the old Office 2003 and I have not yet had complaints about crashes.

Microsoft offers a FixIt tool, which allows you to do a clean uninstall of the Office 2013 files so that you can afterwards create a clean Office installation again. As an additional ressort, there even is a description of how to manually uninstall Office 2013. I did not have to test it, but that might have helped you as well.

You didn't say what types of accounts they are, but mostly likely there isn't a way, unless there is a third-party tool or these are Exchange accounts.

No.

While possible it is not recommended to install multiple versions of Office on the same computer. But they both must be the same bits. The only way this could be done is to install one on a virtual machine.

Hi Folks,

The title of the thread says it all really.

I have legitimate copy of Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate on my PC. I have just bought a copy of Office 2016 Professional Plus through the HUP.

I haven't installed Office 2016 yet - I use Office 2010 at work and find using Custom Animations in PowerPoint tricky compared to Office 2007.

I'd like to install Office 2016 alongside Office 2007 until I have tried Office 2016 to see if the Custom Animations in PP are easier than the 2010 version before switching completely.

My question is, can I install Office 2016 alongside Office 2007 without conflicts - switching between versions without a problem or will installing Office 2016 screw Office 2007 or worse FUBAR both Office installations or my PC.

Any help gratefully received.

Cheers,

Zaph

Having some compatibility issues with 2016 and our exchange server. I need to downgrade back to 2013 but can't find the link anywhere on Office 365 site. Anyone know where or how I can downgrade?

Answer:How to downgrade Office 2016 to 2013?

Currently, you will need to contact Microsoft Support for this. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/3093039
Office 2016 is only compatible with Exchange Server 2010 or later. If you're still using Exchange Server 2007 or earlier, then that is the problem.
If you have Office 365 Business, Business Premium, Enterprise E3, or ProPlus please refer to this topic, https://community.office365.com/en-us/f/172/t/409681.

I know that I have asked this elsewhere before, but I use Office 2013 on a Windows 7 machine at work and when it hangs up/freezes, it applies an aeroglass frame. See picture. Is there a way to implement this when it is working normally (on any version of Windows, but Office 2013/2016)? Thanks.

Answer:Aeroglass on Office 2013/2016 - Is it possible?

Hi, if it uses a standard frame, then Aeroglass (free + watermark or 2 or 3 euros donation for a couple of reusable licences gets you nice borders for all but programs which use borderless windows (e.g. a lot of multimedia progs).

Hello. I recently did a deep clean on my computer, definitely too deep now that I look back on it. In windows update, it shows 7 updates called, "Update for Microsoft Office 2013 64-Bit Edition." that always fails. I don't have Office 2013, I have Office 2016 and would really like these to go away (they're probably harmless but they disturb me mentally). I know that I can right-click on the update and click "Hide" but that only hides it for a short amount of time before it comes back (I think after restart).

I tried to make an an effort to get those updates go away by updating manually. This is what the error says: "An internal error has occurred: (-2147024786 C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 15\MSIPC\MSIPCEvents.man ). Contact Microsoft Product Support Services (PSS) for assistance. For information about how to contact PSS, seePSS10R.CHM".

Now, rather than trying to get them to go away by installing them. I'm looking for help on a solution that would make them go away by possibly removing a file or registry key, or something on my computer like that.

Also, it's too late for me to do a system restore. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi



I recently install a new farm with ADFS 2016 and federated my Office 365 domain with the new farm. Previously I was usig ADFS 2012 R2. 

Now after the "migration" to ADFS 2016 users are not able to sign in to any Office 2013 product. I mean when trying to add my Office 365 account to Word, Excel, Onenote, etc. I get the error "We are unable to connect right now. Please check your
network and try again later" The network is fine as users are able to log on to Office 365 using the web browser. 

The error is happening only on windows 7 with Office 2013 SP1. I updated Office 2013 to last version and still no luck. Is there any compatibility problem with Windows 7 and ADFS 2016? It works fine on Windows 10 and windows 8 even using  Office 2013 SP1
version with no further updates.

I have Office 2016 available via work and want to install it to have the latest shiny and all that

My main issue is being able to preserve all the accounts and settings in Outlook
Will an over the top install preserve these or will I lose them all?

In the past I recall I could export a registry key of the profile, edit a number fro 12 to 15 (for office 2013) and then import this key - do I have to do the same but change the version number to 16 instead?

Answer:Up-grade from Office 2003 to Office 2010 or Office 2013

 I can't speak to Office 2013, but I've done numerous upgrades to Office through 2010.  When you install the new version, you have the option to keep the old version or just replace it.  Starting with Office 2007 the familiar menu bar has been replaced with the ribbons which take a lot of getting used to for folks used to older versions.  There's a little program called UbitMenu that will add most of the menu bar functions back in the 2007 and 2010 versions that a lot of folks find helpful.  If you do opt to have two different versions installed at the same time, what happens is that when you switch from one to the other, it goes through a juggling act that takes a minute or so.  It's a bit of a pain, but if you need it, it could be a convenience.
 
Good luck.

We currently use Office 2007 and Office 2010 on our about 20 workstations. I'm looking to move to MS office 365 for hosted exchange. I found out that as of the first of this year, Microsoft no longer support Outlook 2007 or 2010 for hosted exchange. It seems to be working just fine so far at another site I'm involved with.

Do you guys that are on office 365 for email using the premium version that includes the office subscription or buy Office 2016?

I currently have a licence for Office 2010 for 3 PCs installed on 3 PCs.

I want to retire Office 2010 on my main desktop PC and use Office 2016 instead for which I've bough a cheap single PC licence. I then want to use the spare Office 2010 licence on a fourth PC (but only 3 will be using Office 2010).

What's the best way to install Office 2016 to keep all of my email settings? I'm assuming I should install Office 2016 in parallel with Office 2010 so the new Office 2016 installation picks up my email settings, then uninstall Office 2010 to free up 1 licence. Is this correct or is there a better way?

There have been considerable compatibility isues with Office 2016 and Microsoft Exchange 2007, but I have no personal knowledge of any problems installing over Office 2007.
Your suggestion of backing up contact details (and emails, as you use Outlook) and then running a clean install of Office 2016 might just be the safest route in the circumstances. You can then import your contacts and emails.

The issue is specific to Office 2016 on Win 10 (Office 2016 on Win 7, no problem, Office 2010 on Win 10, no problem). Certain documents (reported by a user who receives documents with Japanese text, haven't seen it happen with others) have the layout messed up, a 2 page Word doc gets spread over 4 pages, and I've been given some sample powerpoint slides which have text overflowing the end of the slide.

Word doc was originally in Legacy 2003 format, I did manage to make this particular document display correctly by saving it in .docx format, then enabling compatibility changes via vba, setting to 2010 compatibility and enabling "Use printer metrics to lay out document" based on what I read here: BUG!! Word 2016 fails to print margins correctly / messes - Microsoft Community

The other sample file I received was a .pptx - haven't been able to find corresponding compatibility options in Powerpoint.

Wouldn't be quite so annoying if they didn't both display perfectly in Windows 7.

Answer:Office Document layout/margins overflow on Office 2016 + Win 10

Turns out it was some sort of font substitution issue. I noticed the fonts in Word/Powerpoint weren't present in the Windows font dir. Copied them over from another Win 7 machine, suddenly everything looks fine.

Not sure why Office 2010 did a better job of it than 2016, I couldn't really pick if there was a difference in the Japanese characters before and after the font, only that the page layout was stuffed...

Microsoft Store United Kingdom Online Store - Office Suites

What you'd do to get the upgrade price I don't know but Office 2013 IS available for download. Try phoning / emailing -- actually a better option these days is to use a FAX believe it or not for this type of question. Emails tend to get lost as people have 100'000's to deal with, phone calls are diabolical --endless menu systems, loads of waiting and people on the other side of the planet who are incredibly difficult to understand.

The lowly fax machine when it chatters into life usually gets INSTANT attention these days . !!

Hi

OS: Windows 8.1
Office Version: Professional Plus 2013

Every office application I open seems to have a classic unthemed title bar and not maximise correctly. When opening an office application a number of things happen:
The application opens behind any open windows
The application when maximised appears to be open full screen with in an invisible frame
Drop down lists within the application instantly close when clicked on

Here are few images showing what I mean:





Steps taken to try to rectify the problem:Reinstalled Office after having used Revo Uninstaller to remove any left over traces
Rolled back to a time I don't believe the problem existed, thought this may have existed from the start but never realised due to lack of use
Reinstalled Graphics Card drivers
Turned off any OS resizing options
Tried changing the OS theme back to default
Tried changing the screen resolution

I should also mention that this only affects office applications and no other applications seem to have any issues like this.

I know I can get around the issue of it being maximised, as can be seen from the screenshot. The issues with dropdown boxes etc is a pain, any help you guys can give would be appreciated

Office 2013 Home and Business, both retail and OEM give you a freaking envelope with a code inside. You need to make a microsoft account and have them stream the installer.

Here's the issues I have with this.

A. They max the limit at FIVE computers per account
B. Install takes WAY longer than it did with a disk and often crashes requiring a complete forced uninstall.
C. I can't tell which license is which on the my accounts page without jumping through hoops to see the fricken product number.
D. Microsoft charges MORE for a volume license agreement to avoid this shit.
E. When I burn a disk, it asks for a key, but still makes me create an account

I just want an MSI, or the built in installer that comes on randomly new Dell laptops (they mostly come with 2010 preinstalled) where I can ENTER THE KEY AND INSTALL THE DAMN SOFTWARE I PAID FOR!

How do you guys handle this? Between Windows 8, all this licensing bullshit, and the Xbox One, Microsoft has really become anti-business and anti-consumer. They have made a shit-ton of bad decisions and I really hope it catches up to them quickly.
 

Answer:Office 2013 Install

On the dells I get, you can find the installation folder in something like programdata\Office15\x86\15.0.4420.1017\office\data (it might be a few more folders in under programdata, I don't have one accesible at the moment, they all get wiped for a new 3rd party SSD)

In there are a bunch of various executables, for home & biz it would be: setuphomebusinessretail.x86.en-us.exe

When you run that, it should give you the option to either sign in to verify, or enter a key code from the card. I've never had to setup an account or stream the install, the full package is there.

I am more frustrated than I can say. I NEED Microsoft office, but I feel like throwing my new computer out of the window because I can't install Office. Should be effortless. I haven't a clue what to do. Even found one place on the Microsoft website that just suggested changing the registry ! To what and how ? No more information than that !Elsewhere the advice is always... just run this bit of software to help remove the trial version or do it manually. Been going through the same thing for 2 days !!!!! But the same bootstrapper problem pops up no matter what I do.Got more adrenalin coursing through my veins right now than I've had for years. Please Please Please Please Microsoft... give us a fix.My computer is useless to me without office. So... wasted money on a new computer and a new version of Office. Wish I'd kept my old one... because this version of Office is clearly not ready for release.The internet is full of loads of people complaining about the same thing.OK rant over. I hope someone can help me.

Hello,

I'm pretty new at all this. I'm looking for a way to install a DVD of Office 2013 (with valid key) on to a laptop that doesn't have a DVD drive built into it.

What's the best way to do this?

Any help would be most appreciated, thanks.

Answer:Best way to install Office 2013?

Use this link
https://setup.office.com
You will need to go into a Microsoft account
Then choose 2013 and
I have a product key
That should allow you to download the setup for your version

Or you will need to borrow a pcwith dvd and copy the dvd onto a usb
And use that

Hi,
I hope someone can help. Brand new hp laptop came with windows 7 installed but also windows 8 disc.
I upgraded to windows 8 and then to 8.1 . No problems.

I then tried to install Office Home & Business 2013, The following then happens----


1. I ENTER PRODUCT CODE NO PROBLEM
2. I SELECT COUNTRY UNITED KINGDOM NO PROBLEM
3. OPTION TO VERIFY LANGUAGE IS GREYED OUT SO I PROCEED TO 4 BELOW
4. THE CONTINUE BUTTON IS GREEN, I GO TO CLICK ON THIS AND AS SOON AS THE MOUSE HOVERS OVER IT
THE BUTTON CHANGES TO GREY BEFORE I CLICK ON IT.WHEN I DO CLICK ON THE CONTINUE BUTTON IT STILL
STAYS GREY AND NOTHING HAPPENS. MOVE MOUSE AWAY BUTTON GOES BACK TO GREY.


Am i doing something daft ? i've tried six times but always the same result.

All ideas and suggestions welcome.

Thanks Dom.

Answer:Office 2013 will not install

Hi there
1) ensure any old / previous Office version is uninstalled - including any Demo / invasionware type of product.
2) Copy the contents of the DVD to disk - keep folders in same order
3) go to the relevant x86 / x64 folder (depending on whether you want to install the 32 or 64 bit version).
4) run the setup EXE file.

Step 2) might appear unnecessary but I've found in the past sometimes copying to HDD before install works whereas installing from DVD sometimes fails. Don't ask me why - I've had this with perfectly good DVD's and nothing wrong with the DVD writer either.

Cheers

Hi there

I think this comment is allowed - there is an NDA but I think this is OK. The latest update installs OFFICE 2016 just fine and works OK. Office 2010 is left untouched so you can run BOTH concurrently.

OUTLOOK 2016 though uses the same data file as Outlook 2010 so SEND from outlook 2010 hoses up with "Cant access Outlook data file".

However once you've sent the email with Outlook 2016 you can see it in the SENT folder of both Outlook 2010 and 2016 so using Outlook 2016 during the preview won't cause carnage to your existing office outlook.

So far very impressed -- FORGET OFFICE 2013 completely. 2016 is STREETS better and you can get rid of that hideous over white theme too. NDA so can't post image.

Note I'm using x-64 for both Office 2010 and 2016.

If you want to try the Links were open this morning -- this could have been an error because they might close again soon.
So far so good -- note some people get activation message unless they have Office 365 subscription --I don't have and didn't seem to get that message.

Am using Windows 10 x-64 Enterprise as the OS I'm testing this on --running on a REAL machine, build 9926.

Good day all,

Sorry if this has been asked before but after I installed Office 2016 Pro, I noticed that it immediately pooped all of the Office apps onto my PC including ones that I really don't need. There's no custom option to select the ones you want and the ones you don't (unlike Office 2013).
I read that it's apparently intended to do so and Microsoft actually has called it a technology (Click To Run Technology).

I was wondering if there's ANY way to be able to exclude apps before the install so that they won't install. Is there a file that I can edit and if so, how exactly should I edit it?

Answer:No Custom install for Office 2016?

Folks have complained about this same problem in the Windows 10 forums -- and the response there is that MS has removed the option to choose what components to install.

On my husbands computer we are running Office pro 2010 on Windows 7.I would like to upgrade it to Office pro 2013. But in Outlook 2010 he has like 40 folders with subfolders full of emails. When i upgrade will Outlook 2013 grab all the settings, folders, emails and put them in correctly? I know office 2013 does not go onto of office 2010 because i did it on my own computer but i do not use outlook on mine, i use WLM so i do not remember what it did for outlook because i do not remember if i put an account in there after i installed it or not. I did mine months ago, call it a senior moment.

Does anyone here using Office 2013, did it as an upgrade and found all their settings, folders, emails, calendar and everything else get transferred into outlook 2013 correctly?

I do have a .pst backup just in case but sometimes when putting this back it messes up everything and i do not want to spend hours fixing it nor a divorce (lol) over this.

I just installed a copy of Office 2013 on a Pc (actually Win7) that already had Office 2010 on it. I was having problems getting an Exchange logon working and for some reason, upgrading to 2013 fixed the problem. I am working with 32-bit in both cases.

The copy of Office 2013 is working great. It noted there was a copy of 2010 there and copied all the information from the 2010, essentially doing an upgrade.

Now I'd like to remove the copy of 2010 and I'm wondering if that will destroy 2013 as well, somehow. The only strange thing I noted is I initially went into Mail-32 in the control panel to add the exchange logon and it added it to Outlook 2010 (sure, now it works on 2010...grrrh!), so I had to go into Outlook 2010 and remove the exchange account and then add the exchange account inside of Outlook 2013, which worked just fine.

So, I'm thinking if I uninstall Office 2010, then mail-32 will auto point to the 2013 version of Outlook. And I'd just like to get the 2010 version off anyway. But not if it's going to be a problem for Office 2013.

I've looked around the Internet and didn't find anything pointing directly at this situation. If leaving 2010 out there is the simplest solution, I'm OK with that. Thanks ahead of time.

Answer:Will Uninstall of Office 2010 destroy Office 2013?

I have been in the situation where I bought a new pc that had a trial version of MS Office 2010 already installed. I installed a full version of MS Office 2007 and uninstalled the MS 2010 trial version later with no problems.

This was a case where I had MS Office 2007 installed on my work computer and my company had a site license that allowed you to also install a copy at home. That's why I choose the 2007 version over the 2010 version.

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.

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.)

OK, so the company I work for finally provided a MAK installation disk and license key for Office 2013 for me to install on a bunch of computers.

I've copied the entire contents of the CD up to a network share so I can do multiple installations at once, which saves me a lot of time.

The problem now is that I have to click through each of the steps during installation, the license agreement, the "install now", etc... Then I have to go back after the install is complete, and open Word or another app, go to Account, then change the product key to the one that I was given, which will make the copy of office activated.

I've checked online and found that I can create an MSP file that includes the correct product key through the Office Config Tool (OCT), which I have done, but whenever I run the MSP file, it tells me that there is no copy of office to "upgrade". I've been able to just run the setup.exe and it runs with no problems, on a new machine, so there's nothing for it to upgrade anyway.

Now, if I install office on one of the machines, and then run the MSP file, it works fine, but there's no reason to do this if Office is already installed.

How can I make the MSP file work without a previously installed copy of Office on the 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.

Hi Everyone,

I am experiencing some issues with the installation (or failed installation!) of Office 2013 Home & Business.

When I initially installed the software I wasn't aware that I should leave the computer running whilst Office 'installed in the background'. I rebooted the computer too early and the installation became corrupted.

At this point I attempted to fix the installation, however there was no improvement, so I made the decision to uninstall Office all together. Once uninstalled, I then reinstalled (from the installation CD / DVD).

Last night I left my computer sitting at 94% installed, as shown below, and when I returned to my computer after 12 hours the installation had not increased by a single percent!

I am now at the point of uninstalling again, however I do not want to reinstall and find the same issue again.

Perhaps there is an "Office cleanup" program that I can run, or certain temp files that need to be deleted, or Registry keys that need tweaking...at any rate any suggestions on how to successfully install the software will be greatly appreciated.

Help!  I am trying to install Office 2013 to a Win 7 machine, 32 bit.  I've asked for help in the Microsoft forums, but no luck so far.  I am trying to install Office from a flashdrive, and was successful with 19 machines our of 21.  The last two machines are killing me!  The machines have been wiped clean of any Office files.  I copy the office installation file to the machine desktop, open the folder and locate the executable file to start the installation.  It appears that the installation is going smoothly for awhile, then I get the following error message:
 
Error 1305, Setup cannot read file
C:\Windows\assembly\GAC\Microsoft.mshtml\7.03300.0_b03f5f7f11d50a3a\Microsoft.mshtml.dll.  Check your network connection or, if you are installing from CD-ROM, be sure that the Professional Plus 2013 CD-ROM is in the drive.  Click Retry to continue or Cancel to stop the installation.
 
Microsoft recommended installing the files to a drive, and installing from a clean boot.  I dragged the files to the C drive, did the Clean Boot, and received the error message that I posted above.   Very frustrated with these machines. I am hoping that someone can help me with this issue!!  In case it makes a difference, my Office 2013 is part of an Educational package, and I pull the files from the MS Volume Licensing Center and they are originally ISO files which were then converted.  I do have the key to activate the instal...

I downloaded the hebrew language pack for my version of office, but it won't install. It says I am running the "preview" version of office, and I can't install a language pack on it.
True that I once had that version, but now, I am running an activated professional plus with all updates.

I then tried downloading a full installation file for hebrew office 2013, and choosing the "repair" option instead of "install". It "repaired" everything, but I still don't have an option for hebrew interface in the language tools.

Is there a way to manually install the language interface files I need?

Answer:office 2013 install new interface language

okay, I installed the hebrew\english version on top of the existing english-only version. It did not mess up anything, and it installed the hebrew interface option that I needed for a certain user account.

Hi Everyone,

I am experiencing some issues with the installation (or failed installation!) of Office 2013 Home & Business.

When I initially installed the software I wasn't aware that I should leave the computer running whilst Office 'installed in the background'. I rebooted the computer too early and the installation became corrupted.

At this point I attempted to fix the installation, however there was no improvement, so I made the decision to uninstall Office all together. Once uninstalled, I then reinstalled (from the installation CD / DVD).

Last night I left my computer sitting at 94% installed, as shown below, and when I returned to my computer after 12 hours the installation had not increased by a single percent!

I am now at the point of uninstalling again, however I do not want to reinstall and find the same issue again.

Answer:Can't install Office 2013, stuck on 94% progress!

Try uninstalling Office again & then disable your anti virus program, before again installing it.
When Office 2013 is installed from a DVD, it does some of the installation via the internet from Microsoft, so it is also important to have you internet connection working at the same time.
Hope this gets you up & running.

Having issues with my installation. I've tried man methods but an Error always occurs. It says something about my invalidity to install due to previous trial versions of microsoft office is already installed. The thing is, i have no office in my rig yet. I've tried installing trial versions then uninstalled it, but still the same problem occurs.

To remove prior versions of Office, do not use Uninstall in the control panel. You must use the removal tool to uninstall all traces. Depending on the version you would use this:

Hi there

will office 2016 be available as a stand alone (non subscription) product for non corporate users. If I follow my link to Buy Now from the trial preview it only offers me Office 365 or Office 2013.

I'm NOT interested in subscription software or Office 2013.

I suppose then back to Office 2010 !!!!. - I'll see if Office 2016 appears within the next few days --still have 70 days left on the trial preview.

Cheers

I bought my Office 365 for cheap in college. It is registered to me under a college email that I no longer can access.
(this is a problem because I used that account to sign up for Bing Ads and the customer support is always messing with me to prove it is my account, hard to do when you cannot access the old email, it is a pain in the rear)
Anyway, if I buy 365 again and register it under a new email, will I lose access to all the storage I have in my school account, or will that remain. Can the accounts be synced? (the on-screen prompts imply they can be synced, but I don't trust MS enough to not verify that this is true)

I assume if I just renew it under the now-defunct email address nothing will change. Except I will be out $69 for a 1 year subscription.

What if I just buy Office 2016 for $71 and keep it for several years.
(if these guys are for real, https://www.istarsoftware.com/112-microsoft-office-2016)

Is there a difference for my purposes? I use MS Word, Excel and Outlook daily.
But I use them at the novice to lower average level user level.

Do you think Office 2016, that will last for several years and is cheaper, will be OK?

I use Outlook to access various emails and I do some very simple spread sheet manipulations with Excel.

To be honest, if it weren't for Outlook I would probably not buy it at all. I like the email client. Otherwise Open Office (I think it is called) is more than sufficient I would think.

Hi there

It looks like that a Student and Teacher edition of Office 2016 will be available at around 90 GBP - 105 EUR while an Office 365 subscription will be around 60 GBP - 73 EUR for 1 year. Since the Student edition will work on 3 machines it seems to me the subscription model is bad value compared with Office 2016.

Now there might be a caveat -- not sure if OUTLOOK 2016 is included with Student and Teacher --we'll have to wait and see.

There *Might* also be an Upgrade price from Office 2010 / 2013 too.

Performed a clean install of Win 10 14332 and all is working well with the exception of installing my corporate MS Exchange email via Office 2016.

The issue is when I launch MS Outlook and provide the appropriate credentials (email, password, etc.) I receive the additional MS Security prompting for the corporate MS Exchange email/account (password (email or Domain account). The issue, even though the MS Security box is present I can?t click the field to enter the password and MS Outlook (32) goes into a Not Responding status in task manager ? see below.

Never had this issue in the past until this latest build ? installed successfully on every prior build. Any advice/direction would be appreciated.

Is there any way to define an installation directory other than C: for office 2016? I tried installing it a few months ago and there didn't seem to be via the installer, and the Office Deployment Tool didn't let to choose the installation target directory, only the source.

How could they think for one second that it was appropriate to strip this option out of the installer?

I've had about enough of Microsoft's "fuck you, we know best" attitude. I just stopped using Windows 10 due to how increasingly difficult it had become to prevent indiscriminate automatic driver updates.

I am running Office 2013 on a cleanly installd SDD that has only ever had office 2013 installed on it. Any idea why windows update is giving me Office 2007 updates, specifically

(KB947318)(KB2817330)(KB2878233)(KB2878233)

I should decline these, right?

thnx

Answer:Office 2007 updates when I only have Office 2013

No don't decline these updates.
Office 2013 updates in the background & does not show up in the usual Windows Updates section. I am using Office 2013 Pro & I have it set for installing updates automatically.
It would be best just to let any updates that are required to be installed. Often certain updates are incorporated to cover a few versions of Office as they earlier ones need it so they incorporate it to cover all the applicable versions, which may also include later versions.
Therefore just leave it alone as fiddling with updates often causes trouble. Also it is just a whole lot of unnecessary work for you.

Following on from helping a neighbour to decide as to the purchase of a new PC, I looked at my computer needs/usage and have decided to have a complete clear out of current PCs and rethink as to what I really use. To that end I would pose :
1) SSD drive - where it is indicated that they are far faster than SATA are there any drawbacks apart from the price and what would be considered a minimum size? I currently have only 89GB for all of my existing programmes.
2) Choosing a new Microsoft Office package, I currently use Word, Excel, Outlook and Access. There are seemingly two options:
Office for Business although does not include Access - for £219
or
Office 365 which does include Access for an annual subscription of £59.99.
It would seem that you take on the subscription and if you decide to cancel the annual subscription then you are required to remove the programme from your PC.
From a previous posting it seems that others use Outlook for all of their contacts, so I could consider using Outlook for that purpose and forget Access.
Any thoughts on any of the above?

Answer:Rethink on completely new PC -SSD - Office 365/Office 2013

compumac: only that, classically, you'd configure your SSD to host your operating system and programs, and keep your data on a 'regular' drive. That way, you can have a relatively small - and inexpensive - SSD. It's only really the operating system and programs that benefit from the much faster access an SSD provides.
