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.
You will need to fill out a evaluation form first before you can download it and select the 32 or 64 – bit version.
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.
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.
After mounting the Office 2013 disc image, run setup.exe and start installation.
Close out of the wizard when installation is complete.
Then the first time you launch an Office 2013 program, you’ll be prompted to enter in the evaluation key.
