Assigning a ProjectPro license to a user . O365 wants to install the 2016 Version. I need the 2013 Version.

A user previously had ProjectPro 2013 subscription installed on her PC a while back. FastForward, we just reimaged their machine. Installed Office 2013 E3 license then went to install her ProjectPro subscription again and received the error: "Some older apps don't work with Office 2016. Before installing the new office, we need to remove: Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus - en-us" Which obviously we need. It appears that O365 is just installing the latest version of Project, without the option to install 2013. Is the way it's supposed to work? Is there a way around this?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Thank you for the info. That site didn't have a lot to go off of from contacting them but I was able to get their Office Support #:1800-936-5800. But after calling, they were of no help. I didn't realize that on one of our original tenant portals, there was a help ribbon thing. Inputted my information and someone called me within 2 mins. and provided me with all links to download the click to run installs. I'll pate them below.
