Get Microsoft Office 2013 Free for 60 Days

Microsoft is offering you the ability to use Office 2013 Professional Pro free for 60 days. This is a perfect opportunity for you to test drive the new version of Office and decide if you want to upgrade permanently.

Download and Install Office 2013 for Free

Go to the TechNet Evaluation Center and click the Get Started Now button and log into your Microsoft account.

Download Office

You will need to fill out a evaluation form first before you can download it and select the 32 or 64 – bit version.

Evaluation form

After filling out the form, you’ll get the evaluation key you need to activate Office. Copy the key to Notepad or print it out. Select your language and start the download.

Office Key

The image file of Office is 666MB so the amount of time it takes to download will vary. I recommend using Internet Explorer. You’ll be prompted to install the Microsoft download manager first, and it downloads faster in my experience.

Download Manager

After the download is complete, on Windows 8, mounting a disc image is supported. Right click it and select Mount. On Windows 7 you’ll need a program like Virtual Clone Drive (free) to mount it.

Mount Image

After mounting the Office 2013 disc image, run setup.exe and start installation.

setup

Close out of the wizard when installation is complete.

Office 2013 Installed

Then the first time you launch an Office 2013 program, you’ll be prompted to enter in the evaluation key.

Enter Key
