Where is the Microsoft Office Professional 2013 MSI installer?

Recommended Posts

According to Microsoft's 3 different sets of instructions for how to install Office 2013 LOL using an offline MSI installer, it says to sign into your Microsoft account, select your language and 32-bit or 64-bit Windows, and click the download offline installer link (I don't see any of this info), but there's no links and none of these instructions are even accurate! Every time I click the Install button, I get a pop-up saying Go Premium. Microsoft says you'll get this pop-up if they can't associate your Microsoft account with your copy of Office, but I have already verified my copy twice, including my license key. The only download offered to me is always the Click-to-Run online installer I don't want. Microsoft has taken something that used to be so simple (installing Office) and made it a painful and frustrating process. I am so done with Microsoft. Windows 7 and Office 2013 are it for me.

Does anybody know where I can find the MSI offline installer Microsoft claims is available but I can't find anywhere they say for Microsoft Office Professional 2013?

Check here, it seems that the good MS guys have removed links from where they were (and should have been), of course - in order to simplify things for the user - making them not findable, though seemingly they are still available (maybe):

As of March 1 2017, Office 2013 is no longer available for download in the Office 365 portal or at office.microsoft.com.

Microsoft good guys? You mean id*** with no logic or commonsense who killed the desktop PC after Windows 7? :buehehe:

The link you shared is just for a very small 1.07 MB setup file, similar to the Click-to-Run version I already downloaded from my Microsoft account, which I cannot download on my Windows XP computer, saying it's not a valid Win32 application, when it's 32-bit Windows. LOL I want the full-size MSI installer. Where is this file? Does the link provide an updated copy of Office 2013 with Service Pack 1 preinstalled, or do I have to install that myself? When I try to run the setup file on my Windows XP computer, it says it's not a valid Win32 application, again. I know Office 2013 is not supported by Windows XP; I just want to download the offline MSI installer for Office 2013 Pro on my Windows XP computer to be installed on my Windows 7 64-bit computer, but how? Do I need the Office Deployment Tool to install this copy of Office 2013 Pro, or it that optional?

Jaclaz, I really appreciate how hard you worked to find these links, but the only offline download is still not for a basic MSI, but instead an IMG, not basic ISO, file. And that IMG file still requires Microsoft's annoying Click-to-Run technology, so it's not even really an offline installer. The link to order a Microsoft replacement disc was removed by MS. Do you want to keep trying? Any Office Pro 2013 users that have an MSI installer they wouldn't mind sharing?

I know :yes:,

Basically because it is written in clear letters on the given site :whistle::

The IMG images are not the same as the "Single Image" downloads that used to be available from Digital River, but offline versions of the streaming "Click-to-Run" version, with all disadvantages associated with that.

Life is tough. :(

Anyway, if you read between (or beyond) the lines you could try searching around for X18-65189.iso.

Maybe you could land here :dubbio::

https://web.archive.org/web/20150331001338/https://drcdn.blob.core.windows.net/office2013/X18-65189.iso

or maybe here:

And again that (or that other one) may (or may not) be what you are after.

The first link you provided for X18-65189.iso may be correct, but it says that's for Office Professional Plus 2013, not Office Professional 2013; they're different versions. Will my license key for Office Pro 2013 work on an Office Pro Plus 2013 DVD?

Well then try looking for other files.

There are possibly a zillion versions of these. no idea which license key is compatible with which.

But it seems that no .msi ever existed for Office 2013 Professional, only for Professional Plus:

What other files? There's no Office Professional 2013 version on the pages you provided, and I made it clear that's my version in 32-bit. Your guess is as good as mine. Microsoft's not smart enough to write an article telling us. You're probably right. Knowing Microsoft, they made an MSI version only for Professional Plus. LOL What a bunch of morons. That's okay because worst case scenario, I will just use OpenOffice 4 and delete Office Pro 2013 if Microsoft gives me any issues with the install when it's time. But I mean it when I say, I'm forever done with Microsoft after Windows 7 64-bit.
