I bought the key - now where's the download? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I purchased a "medialess" product key for MS Project Standard 2013. 

    Where do I get the installer?

  • The "media-less" SKU is for people who already have the media.   If you don't have it, then you will need to either buy the media, download from a MSDN subscription or install an evaluation copy and us your key to activate.  The product key turns of the evaluation.

    I am not 100% sure, when you download and provide the key, the key will only activate your Project Standard features.  

    I notice that in the MSDN subscription, that 2013 does not have two installation kits for standard and professional.  So I feel confident that the product keys activates what you paid for.

    Also, the company you bought it from may also have a place to download it from.

    I hope that gets you moving!

  • I bought the software at a retail store - MicroCenter.  

    The card inside the box says to go to to download the software but after I type in my key it tells me that I don't have the software.  

    I can't find anywhere that sells a physical copy of the software so how exactly am I supposed to install this (very expensive) cardboard card?

  • Is the message saying your key is invalid?  I would call MicroCenter (the retailer) and let them know if your problem.  Bear in mind that Project will have a different key than Office will.
