Office 365 RRS feed

  • Question

  • My son has Windows 8.1 on his notebook with Microsoft Office 2013 trial which has now passed the trail period expiry date.

    I have purchased Office 365 and would like to install it on his notebook.

    Do I need to uninstall the trial copy on his notebook or will the installation recognise it and deal with it accordingly?

  • Hi,

    If it was a trial of Office365, you can "convert" the trial to a licensed copy.
    If it was a trial of Office2013, you should uninstall that, then install Office365.

    (although they may appear to be the same, Office2013 is different from Office365, the licensing control mechanisms are different)
