    Office 2013 - Can a MSHUP Key activate MSDN ISO ?


    I've bought two HUP licenses for MS Office 2013 Professional for US$ 13 (each one).

    They sent me the keys but no download link.

    Will my keys work for the MSDN/TechNet ISOs or I need to download another image?

    I would think they should work. I do believe the TechNet/MSDN downloads will accept retail keys. TechNet lists it as "Office Pro Plus 2013 (TechNet Professional) Retail".

    Good to know.

    One of the keys is reserved for my new build, that's currently under construction.

    Thanks.

    You do know that you can't download TechNet/MSDN ISO's from Microsoft without a subscription, right? I think you can download the trial version and make it full with your keys though.

    Strange, in the US you aren't allowed to buy 2 copies of the HUP. It's right in the FAQ
    Microsoft Home Use Program - Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013. The software suite includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Publisher, Access and more!

    How many products can I purchase?Eligible customers are allowed to purchase a single license of either Office Professional Plus 2013 or Office for Mac 2011. Additionally, if part of the Enterprise Agreement, customers may purchase one each of the other products available from the online store, usually Project or Visio.
    However, there is not a limit on purchases Language Packs.

    I have two eligible work emails. I'm an employee at one company and work as a permanent consultant at another one.

    I found that I didn't use Office at home because I have it on my work laptop, so I saved my $10. Seems silly, but why pay for something that I won't use.

    Right !

    I bought those licenses because I'm in the way to legalize all software in my work rigs at my home office.

I just installed a copy of Office 2013 on a Pc (actually Win7) that already had Office 2010 on it. I was having problems getting an Exchange logon working and for some reason, upgrading to 2013 fixed the problem. I am working with 32-bit in both cases. The copy of Office 2013 is working great....
upgraded to 2013 I told it to remove 2010 and install 2013 durning the install my nvidia drivers kept stopped responding. this problem stopped after office 2013 was installed and updated. and later I found out my vmware installation was messed up and missing files. was working before. ...
