    Office 2013 now available on Technet


    Hi everone
    If you are a TechNet subscriber you can download OFFICE 2013 NOW -- (Real versions not the trials or previews).

    I'm running it on a W8 VM machine (X-64 PRO version).

    Not sure if I like it better than 2010 -- need to play with it a bit more.

    Note however if you have some 3rd party EXCEL addins these might not work -- I have one for downloading OPTION prices from the CBOE (Chicago board of Options Exchange) CBOE | Chicago Board Options Exchange which fails so you might want to test on a separate machine before replacing Office 2007 / 2010.

    Cheers

    I have the TN version. It seems good, but not sure I'll purchase yet. I just don't use that many features of Word and Excel anymore. Not even sure I'd use the new features. I haven't investigated them thoroughly though. Too busy. Am running TN Win8 Pro also.

    I've had Office 2013 for a while (since October 24) (final version, not preview) - did it show up later for some people than for others?

    Don't know is your's a Technet version? Personally, I wasn't in a big hurry to get it.

    Yes, I got it from TechNet.

    You didn't miss anything ...

    The good news is that I have not encountered any problems creating or saving documents in Office 2013 and then opening them in Office 2010. Outlook was the only hiccup I have encountered but even that's beahving normally now.

    Hi there
    Still one problem with outlook 2013 -- You can't uncheck the box Test email settings so if the test fails you can't create an account.

    With Outlook 2010 you could disable the checkbox.

    Sometimes - especially if you are on a public Wi-Fi system your ISP won't allow you to use their SMTP server for SENDING mail -- Receiving is always OK.
    So if you need to re-create your email account --say you re-install (or just INSTALL) the OS or install OFFICE 2013 from scratch you can't CREATE an account if the test email settings fails..

    In any case why can't I set up an email account without having to be connected to the internet. I might want to SET up accounts offline --and next time I'm online just use them.

    Seems a bit of a blunder here Ms -- I downloaded OFFICE 2013 from TechNet -- didn't upgrade 2010 since I had 2010 x-86 and wanted the X-64 version this time.


    So I had to roll back --I need at least to READ email.

    Here's the checkbox in outlook 2010 --doesn't appear in Outlook 2013.

    !!!cheers
