What is the difference between the Office 2013 suites and Office 365 plans?Microsoft Office is still the name Microsoft uses for its familiar productivity software. Office suites have traditionally included applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. All Office 2013 suites include the latest versions of the applications, for use on a single PC.Microsoft uses the name “Office 365” for products that include cloud services, such as additional SkyDrive online storage, Skype minutes for home use, Lync web conferencing or Exchange Online hosted email for businesses. Cloud services are features that are enabled over the Internet. Most Office 365 plans also include the full-featured Office 2013 applications, which users can install across multiple computers and devices. All Office 365 products, such as Office 365 Home Premium, are paid for on a subscription basis, annually. Active subscribers will receive future rights to version upgrades as a benefit of their subscription. Entitlements vary by product.

If you do not have an internet connection, do not buy it. The product downloads the necessary files and installed them once you have followed the instructions. Typically this is about 10 minutes on a 10MB internet connection.
Open the box, remove the card and open an internet browser. In the address bar type [...]
If that specific URL is not on the setup instructions within the box, return it to Amazon as you have purchased counterfeit software.
Once the page loads, it will ask you to sign in with an existing Microsoft ID, or create a new one. You can use your own email address for this. Once the sign up is complete, you need to open the link on the email that is sent and sign in. This will activate you office account.
You can then click on the Install button on the webpage that loads. A small file will download, click Run once the option appears. Office will start installing for you.
If you change computer, you can take the license with you. Just remove from the old device and install on the new one. There is no limit to the machine you move the software to, but it can only be installed on one.
I think Office 2013 Home and Business is a great step forward, and having the software associated with a Microsoft Account means you don't have to keep DVD's of software in a safe place, all you need is an internet connection and the login details (you can always reset these if you forget your password too).
The absurd reliance on download of vast files instead of common sense issuance of hard media product might do something to protect Microsoft from a few unscrupulous users, but it costs the great majority of law-abiding users problems, and for a sizeable minority in the UK with broadband speeds unable to support a 1GB download, serious problems.
The moronic insistence of Microsoft email address for registration is equally disruptive. It doesn't work properly, doesn't take account of multi-PC usage, needs reversion to typing in Key code anyway. And if every App on each PC required an email address of its own from the manufacturers, it would require every user to have scores of useless, unused email addresses like their Microsoft email address just for the purpose of activating each software package. This gross arrogance has overstretched itself - many of us resent such a vacuous imposition.
In fact, the only reason I bought this particular licence this time was because I made the mistake of getting an online fix of my Excel 2013 (a small bug which could not find a temporary file on startup) and the blasted thing reinstalled Office 2013 without my asking, whereupon it then asked for the licence key - which I had lost. (Yes, my fault, but if it had been printed on a DVD or DVD insert paper I would probably not have.) That will teach me to allow Microsoft to fix a bug in their own software - it has cost hours. And guess what? It comes up almost immediately with the same error but a different filename.
Microsoft desperately need competition on Office. They're bloated and complacent.
Then I noticed that some of the emails I received with HTML graphic were getting reduced column size. The font of the email remains as desired, but the body of the email occupies only the central third of available width. The result is a long email with a lot of white space either side of the graphics/text. Contacted Microsoft again and is trying to diagnose the issue remotely, they seem to have messed up my screen resolution setting to the point that my second screen now only works intermittently. The email issue is now with Microsoft to resolve, registered as a bug. No idea on resolution date. My Windows 7 Outlook 2010 displays the exact same emails correctly.
Outlook 2013 has been on the market for a while now, so I have reasonable amount confidence that it is bug free. I can only conclude that it has some compatibility issues with Windows 10.

Früher wurde beim Erwerb einer Software eine CD mitgeliefert.
Damit konnte auch ich die Installation durchführen.
Aber ohne CD hatte ich einen Fachmann benötigt.
STILL trying to get it working correctly after HOURS spent on it!
And i wasn't the 1st person to get a bad product key.
