We bought a Dell computer with Windows 7 pro + Office 2013 home & business. The disk has failed the day we installed it (hardware failure). The disk is now replaced, but the Dell technician installed a bare Windows 7.

We have a PKC (Product Key Card) for Office, but I could't find out where I can download the software. I only found "Office Professional Plus" from a Microsoft's site. Other downloads I found are only from no-official websites.

Where can I download an official version of Office Home & Business, usable with a PKC?

  • Go to www.office.com/setup.
  • Enter your 25-digit install key.
  • Sign in.
  • Follow on-screen instructions to download.

    Either path I take lead to payment. Either Office 365, either pay before download. – Gregory MOUSSAT Apr 9 '13 at 17:16

    Oops, screwed that up, doing it that way auto-direct you to what you've keyed in already, which you probably haven't got that far. I'll edit my answer.. – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Apr 9 '13 at 18:30

Close but this is what you really need:

If the card with your 25 character Office 2013 product key references a PC manufacturer, please use www.office.com/getoffice to download your new Office product.
