Free Microsoft Office 2013 Download
Office users can try free Microsoft Office 2013 download for installing Office 2013 on their computers.
Microsoft released Microsoft Office 2013 preview recently. Users can try Microsoft Office 2013 free during the preview period.
Although Microsoft provides a web installer for Office 2013 setup, I experienced Office installation problems.
You can choose to try free Microsoft Office 2013 download and install in on your computer too. Just as I did.
If you follow this download link, it will request you to login with your Passport account.
Then you will be redirected to TechNet Product Key Distribution for Office 2013 pages.
This Microsoft TechNet page will not only provide you required activation keys (Office 2013 product key) but also links to 32 bit and 64 bit binaries of Microsoft Office 2013 Professional Plus setup files.
One important note to choose x86 or x64 versions of Microsoft Office 2013 for Office users is previously installed Office products require the same product architecture family for new Office 2013 Preview applications too.
So if you have already installed Office products of 32 bit, then you can try free Microsoft Office 2013 download of 32-bit distribution binaries and install 32 bit Office applications.
Or you can uninstall previously installed 32 bit applications, and then install x64 Microsoft Office 2013 Professional Plus preview (beta) version.
We can't install the 64-bit version of Office because we found the following 32-bit programs on your PC:
Microsoft Office Project Professional 2010
Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007
Please uninstall all 32-bit Office programs, then re-try installing 64-bit Office. If you want to install 32-bit Office instead, please run the 32-bit setup.
After you register for the Office 2013 Preview, you can try Microsoft Office 2013 download for 64-bit setup files which will especially make Excel users happy with its increased memory capabilities based on the 64-bit operating system it will be running on.
After you decide MS Office 2013 edition you want to download, you can choose among available Office 2013 languages (English, Spanish and Japanese)
Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013 Preview setup is a straight-forward process and does not require user interaction after you start installing Office 2013.
Only after Office 2013 installation is complete, you can provide Office 2013 product key which will automatically activate Office 2013 setup.
