Where to get Office 2013 install media

Hi,

I just bought a new laptop, and separately an MS Office 2013 Home and Business license (with no CD in it, just the license).

Where can I get the installation media? Everywhere I go online all I can find is click to run which installs a Q: or R: drive. This breaks my server applications as our network already has Q: and R: drives mapped. It's driving me mad not to mention wasting loads of time.

Many thanks,

Alasdair Barclay

Enter product code
You will have to faff with opening a windows live account and respond to an email confirmation (Microsoft love to make things easy!)

But You should then be able to download and install

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Q and R drives are virtual drives for the click to run version

You should be able to get the msi version following the link above (either mine or IanTh) goes to same place

Thanks for replying. However I can't find an MSI version by following the link. I've created an account and associated the product key with it. If I try the option Install from a disc, burn a disc, the .img file I download then burn to a DVD is still a click-to-run installation...

Hi all,

very sorry about the delay in getting back, been on other projects. Despite the installation still being a streaming installation, doing it this way did not create the dreaded local Q drive for office therefore my network drive was still available.
