    Office 2013 installation


    Hi friends! I need a little help!

    I bought Office 2013 in my company (Microsoft partner) and I received in my email a serial number and a link to download. I download and installed but I have 2 questions:

    1.Installation program don't ask for serial, its normal?
    2.Setup installed Office 2013 without option to choose components, how can I remove some Office 2013 components?

    Thanks for any help!

    1. It will ask for product key when you run one of the Microsoft Office Applications (Word 2013, Excel 2013)
    2. You can always go to Programs and Features, then select Microsoft Office 2013, click Change. Then Pick Add or Remove Features.

    I did the download streaming install. It doesn't give you any choices. It Installs all the programs on drive C drive. Mine activated automatically. When you click on change, all you get is repair on line or local. I didn't get the option to remove any programs. I also wanted to make a backup disk. But didn't get that option either. I don't know where it downloaded to. It just installed when the 4 hour download finished.

    Because only the pieces you are actually using are installed - if you go to use a new app or component, just enough of that program or component is loaded so that you can start and start using that app or component, and the rest is downloaded in the background automatically if you're online. That's what a streaming installation of Office 2013 does, so this is expected behavior here.
