Welcome to

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to help you with your office issues today.

Expert:  Dustin replied 4 years ago.

And I just seen your replies come through.

So I can get you the correct answer, I need to know where you purchased the download from James.

My apologies for the delay.. I had a hard time sending a reply to you, and I hope this one goes through.

If you could, please click the link below

On that page, enter the product key from the card that Officemax gave you when you purchased your Microsoft office program

After you enter the product key, you will be presented with the download screen.

You then need to download and install office.. And once it is installed, It may ask you for your product key a second time.

If you get stuck or run into any issues, please let me know

Ok.. walk me through what is happening.

You enter your product key, and it accepts it, then it says go to that page?

Or it takes you to that page automatically?

What exactly happens after entering your product key on screen..

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

After entering the product key, it takes me to my Hotmail site and then askes me to start own load. When I do, the message "cannot access this page and I have to go to

My apologies for the delay in getting back to you James..

Sounds to me like everything is happening as it should.. Except, there must be an issue with the microsoft download server.

When you get the chance, can you look at this page and tell me the exact version of office you purchased? office%202010&pmt=b&WT.srch=1&WT.mc_id=pointitsem_Microsoft+US_google_5+-+Office+15+Suites&WT.term=office%202010&WT.campaign=5+-+Office+15+Suites&WT.content=SHKb3iHN&WT.source=google&WT.medium=cpc

The version I have is Home and Student 2013

Expert:  Dustin replied 4 years ago.
Lets try this another way, one more time..

Please go to the link below. dc&cid=5250&pcrid=20504911133&pkw=office%20home%20and%20student&pmt=b&WT.srch=1&WT.mc_id=pointitsem_Microsoft+US_google_5+-+Office+15+Suites&WT.term=office%20home%20and%20student&WT.campaign=5+-+Office+15+Suites&WT.content=kjLYlwkj&WT.source=google&WT.medium=cpc

At the top right, click login.. Login to the microsoft account that you have been entering your product key on for office.

Once you login, go to the products and downloads section. Is it showing your office 2013 as a product there?

If so.. It should have a download link.. And hopefully its working from this portal.

If not..

Then on the main page, where it said login.. There is a live chat button.

You will need to get one of the microsoft sales and support reps online.. And let them know that your product key is being accepted, but the download link fails to load and you cant download your purchase of office 2013.

They should be able to relay to you a direct link for download.

In the meantime.. You can try downloading the trial of office 365 ( which includes office 2013 )

If we can get the trial downloaded and installed.. You may be able to activate it with your current office product key.. The trial link is below
