Hello Jimbo,

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

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.
