MS Office 2013 Professional



  • Yes - I realize that MS Office 2013 is old. That Office 365 and MS Office 2016 is in deployment.

    However there are software limitations that require the use of Office 2013 Pro due to how it operates. And as such I am curious if there are any places that may have legitament stock available for sale.

  • Do you have a VL account? You can download Office 2013 from there still.

    There is a VL account - but I believe the number of installs has been reached.



  • MS stops officially supporting 2013 April of 2018. However has extended service until 2023. Will the Volume License of it still stay active as 0ffice 2013 until 2023?

    There may be downgrade rights included with the VL license. They were included from 2013 to 2010 and 2007.



  • Might be but is there?

    Yes - It does appear that you can downgrade 2016 - but now looking for how.



  • All VL includes downgrades rights. always has. Just buy another license.

    The volume license as I understand it will be valid forever. Though at some point you might find that you can't download it from VLSC website.

    And you may be required to keep an older server around to activate it with KMS - but these are unknowns as of now.

    Downgrade has always been on the shoulders of the end user to acquire media for installation. That said, if you have a VL license, you can download the older media from the VLSC website still.
