You cannot activate the Trial, you can use it for 30 days and then you need to buy a key and then you can activate.

When you install the trial from TechNet, you don't have to log into our account.

When you install the trial from Office.com, you don't have to put in the product key, actually there is no product key. But when prompt to log into your account, make sure to log on with the account that you sign up for the trial from Office.com.

Nothing we have tried seems to work. I called Microsoft and they told me only Trial for Office 2013 is Office 365...is that correct? Makes no sense...

We simply want a 30 day trial of 2013 for our clients to evaluate vs staying with 2007 or 2010

Thanks
