Office 2013 Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I get Office 2013?

NOTE:  The network installation for Office 2013 requires activation against a WPI license server initially and then again at least once every 180 days.  This requires a VPN connection to renew the activation, which will reset the counter for another 180 days.  Systems regularly on the WPI network will not have problems but we recommend that for personal systems off the WPI network that you purchase the CLA media.  For any issues with activation please go to the Office 2013 Activation page.

To install Office 2013, Map a drive to \\storage\software\microsoft\Windows\Office. You should run the Install Microsoft Office 2013 shortcut.  Office 2013 does not support Windows XP or Windows Vista.
