Hi there. I have done this before. We have several computers in the office, they are all part of a domain, in the beginning of the install I was able to download office 365 on a local computer after I had joined the domain, now when I try to login it goes to the Outlook Web portal which I dont want to, I just want to be able to download a copy on my local computer. Frustrating.

Is your acquisition of Office by Subscription?  If so, I think web portal login and download is the only way.

If you made a volume purchase, Microsoft should have given you a link to download.

Since you are using Subscription, you need to log into the Office 365 web portal and from there you can choose to install a license. This needs to be done on each machine.

Office 365 is the name of the online subscription based system Microsoft have. It encompasses Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and Web Apps.

Included in some subscriptions are 5 licenses for the current iteration of Office Pro Plus (right now that is version 2013).

In order for you to be able to install Office Pro Plus 2013 on one of the computers you would like to use you need to logging onto the portal and download the installer. In the last update to Office 365, MS made the installed small and when you run it, it down loads the full install, on the fly - as it needs it.
