Hi there
@Brink -- Seems to work now on W7 x-64 ultimate -- maybe I mis-typed something but still fails on W8 Enterprise (X-64) . Office version also x-64.

Hello Jimbo,

Nar, my Office 2013 is installed and activated on 64-bit Windows 8 Enterprise.

You might try to phone activate Office 2013 using the information in the blue note box at the top of the tutorial.

Hello Hound, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if you may be able to activate Office 2013 by phone instead.

Microsoft Office 2013

To start the Product Activation Wizard, follow these steps:
  1. Open any Office program. For example, open Microsoft Word 2013.
  2. Click the File tab.
  3. Click Account, then click Activate Product.
  4. In the Microsoft Office Activation Wizard, choose I want to activate the software by telephone, then click Next.
  5. Click the drop-down menu, and then select the country or region in which you're located.
  6. The Product Activation Center telephone number appears under Step 1.

Hope this helps,

Shawn,

Thanks for replying. I cannot get the activation screen to display. Still getting temporary server issues message. I tried to activate by phone but they don't say Office 2013 on it and I end up getting cut off. If I could just get to the activation screen I will be satisfied but I can't get to it.
