Windows 7: Installing MS Office 2013 - how to tell when it's through

Installing MS Office 2013 - how to tell when it's through

Finally decided to install MS Office 2013 Pro that I've had for a while. Everything seemed to be moving along smoothly, my product key was accepted, etc., until the little window asked me if I'd like to see what was new in Office. I clicked on yes and the window blinked, then immediately up popped a window that said done and continue or OK, which I clicked on and everything disappeared. The DVD drive is still blinking so it looks like something is happening and all the office components are listed in the program list under Start but I don't know if it's done or why the disk drive is still busy. Does anyone know if the CD will eject when it's done or about how long it should take? Really poor installation procedure.

Advice gratefully sought!

Office 2013 is what they call Click to Run, which means that the install procedure is supposedly quick, but for those of us that are familiar with the normal installation procedure of other software, it does seem confusing.

Basically Click to Run gets the activation process over at the beginning & then it takes you to various items & then you are asked to put in your MS membership details which gives you access to One Drive, which is Microsoft's Cloud service that can use if you wish.

While all this is going on Office 2013 is being downloaded from the web & installed in the background.

To check if the installation has installed, just click on the Start Button from the desktop & select All Programs, scroll down & see if Microsoft Office is showing. You can also check by opening Control Panel, select Programs & Features, then scroll down to Microsoft Office to see if it's there. If it shows up in those places you can click on one of the Office Programs showing in All Programs & if it loads properly you should be under way & you can remove the installation DVD.

I am also using Office 2013 Pro, so if you have more question feel free to ask. I am relying on memory for the installation process as I installed it in July 2013, so I may have forgotten some of the details.
