Office 2013 – is it me ?

Old 1 Comment on Office 2013 – is it me ? 17

“Is it me?, am I doing something wrong? Back in the day you purchased Office, installed it from
floppies (yes I was that soldier) CDs etc, entered the Product key and all was well in the world.

Now – Office 2013 Home & Business 2013.

Create a Microsoft account and validate (Max of 3 accounts a day)
Register the Product key.
Run the installer
Activate Product – “Product Activated”

Then having been OK for 3 -4 months Office 2013 stops responding.

You Click on Word, Excel or Outlook, it has a little think and does nothing.

Performing an Online or Quick repair fixes the issue but something is seriously flawed with this software.

Anyone else had similar issues?

    Hey John,

    I haven’t had any issues with this, and I’ve had Office 2013 deployed since……. let me think here, our oldest one is about a year in a production environment ?

    That said, I’m across the pond from you, so our authentication servers / methods might not be the same as you.
