    Why MS Office 2013 fail to install on Windows 8?

    Hello, This is very strange issue I ever faced. A Microsoft product not working on Microsoft operating system. I have windows 8 personal computer, a few weeks after installing windows 8 I tried to install Microsoft office 2013 on my computer, the process starts normally i.e I double click on setup then entering the product key then clicking next, now the installation process will be started with a status. Now on my computer, this process stucks in between and won't complete this installation process forever. I need to restart my computer to close that installation window. Please help me how to do that without any issues. Thank you in advance.

    Hi it's not the problem of windows operating system or Microsoft office 2013

    Here are the some reasons behind your problem

    1:Your system is fully loaded with apps and it's working slow

    2:Your system does not meet the minimum requirements

    3:Try installing after updating some updates of your system

    4:Check your MS-Office software is working properly or not

    That's it! over

    Hi,
    This surely might be due to either:
    Your system has drive i.e. C:/ drive has not ample space to install OFFICE.
    So just change the installation directory.
    OR
    It might be that the MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS is not fulfilled by your PC.
    So just make sure that it fulfills the system requirements.
    Then just re-install it again.
    Hope this surely helps....

    Hi dear friend..............

    it might be the problem of office files

    when the Files of office missing or corrupted causes also this error appears

    So, first of all check whether the files of OFFICE properly working or not

    Other wise Download the MS office 2013 again from the internet net and try again

    AND also remember this ............ for the installation of office 2013..... your processor must have SSE2 instruction set

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!

    Dear Friend..

    As far I have concern with this issue, this might be the compatibility issue.
    Windows 8 has lot of issue with so many apps and software's. Similarly, the only office which is working fine with Windows 8 is only M.S. Office 2007.

    This is the reason why, the M.S. Office 2013 is not at compatible with this OS and if you really wanna use office, then go with either 2003 or 2007.

    Thank you...

    There is possibly no infringement between Microsoft OS and Microsoft Office,

    The problem lies with either the media, or with your optical drive.

    The storage media, where the office 2013 is stored is possibly corrupt, some part of the surface must have encountered problems which corrupted the data in that area and the installer can't read data from there.
    Clean the media with a clean cloth in streight movement, not circular, and then try again.

    If you have a cleaning kit with you, insert the cleaning diskette into optical drive and run it to clean the lense , bkow air into the drive to clean it from dust particles those may have deposited in it.

    After that insert the cleaned Office installer disk into optical drive and install.

    Re: Why MS Office 2013 fail to install on Windows 8?

    First of all ensure that you are using original setup file of MS Office 2013.

    If it is original then check weather you have correct product key.

    You can also face problem due to insufficient space in your C drive where programs are installed.

    You should make ample space in C drive.

    Close all other softwares and installation/uninstallation processes in your system.

    Now try to install.

    If you have all original things and uncurropted files then it will surely installed in your system.

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say...................

    1.Firstly check that your using the Windows 8 preview or Pro version.

    2.If you are using the Preview version then it will do not work.

    3.If that is not your problem then the problem is with your installation file.

    4.So you try to get the original CD and then try to install it.

    5.Still if you have the problem then the problem is with your OS files.

    6.So you try to repair the OS files.

    Have a nice day.........................

    Hi,
    It is simple. You have to check Your System Property .


    You have to my computer and Select Properties. Here you will be find all details of your Computer.

    Now check what requirement are needed for MS office 2013.

    Therefore Update your system.

    According to my view,

    You have to install MS Office 2010.

    Good luck...............

    Re: Why MS Office 2013 fail to install on Windows 8?

    Dear,

    First, you should check whether your system supports minimum system requirements for both Windows 8 and Microsoft Office 2013. If your system is optimum for Microsoft Office 2013, to resolve your problem do the following:

    1. Check the system type of Windows 8 and Microsoft Office 2013. A 64-bit Microsoft Office 2013 does not work on 32-bit system. A 32-bit Microsoft Office 2013 can be installed on both 64-bit Windows 8 and 32-bit Windows 8.

    2. Instead of installing all the programs in Microsoft Office 2013 package advance, try to install only a few programs once and remaining in the next installation (for example Microsoft Office Word, Excel, PowerPoint at once and Microsoft One Note, Outlook, Microsoft publisher in second time). These programs can be selected before installation.

    3. Also check the key of the Microsoft Office 2013, you are using. A fake key can also cause problems.

    Thanks.
