Follow these steps for Office 2013 installation

If you are having problems installing Office 2013 and are using the Speedport W723V Type A or B router, try the following steps.

Note: The file size of the image is approximately two gigabytes, so the image download could take a few minutes.

  1. Download the ProfessionalRetail.img to your local machine from this website.

  2. After you see a prompt to open or save the .img file, choose your preferred option.

    • If you choose Open, the file will download. When the download is complete, you will see a new virtual drive D that contains the Office installation files.

      Note: If you already have another drive that is labeled D, Office will create a virtual drive with the next available letter.

    • If you choose Save, you can specify where you'd like the image (.IMG) file to be saved. For example, you can save it to your desktop or to a USB drive. On Windows 10 and Windows 8 machines, you can open the file directly. If you use Windows 7, you will need to copy the image file to a disc before you can open the file and continue.

  3. Run the setup.exe program located in the folder just downloaded to your virtual drive.
