This article only applies to:
You already subscribe Office 365, but you want to download the offline installation package.
You already purchase Office 2013, but you want to install it in a different language.


Before download Office, you need to prepare few things:

1. Download Office Deployment Tool for Click-to-Run


Update: The latest "Office Deploy Tools for Click-to-Run" may have some issue with download, here is the old version, you can verify the digital signature to make sure this file is from Microsoft: setup.zip

2. A text editor, like notepad or notepad++. Except Microsoft Word

3. A fast and stable Internet connection. The size of offline installation package is about 1GB. So fast internet connect will save lot's of time.

Here is the step of How to download offline installation package:

1. Download "Office Deployment Tool for Click-to-Run", run it and extract it to a easy to find path, like "C:\Office15\"

2. Go to the path you selected before (In this example, is "C:\Office15\"), use text editor to open configuration.xml, delete all the content, and copy the following content into it:

  <Add SourcePath="C:\Office15\" OfficeClientEdition="64" >
    <Product ID="ProfessionalRetail">
      <Language ID="en-us" />

In here, you need to change following staff:

  • Change "SourcePath" to the path you selected in the first step.
  • Change "OfficeClientEdition" to the edition of Office you want to download. 32 means 32bit edition, 64 means 64bit edition.
  • Change "Product ID" to the product you want to download. The list of Product ID is at the end of this article
  • Change "Language ID" to the language you want to download. The list of Language ID is at the end of this article.

3. Open "Command Line" (Click "Start", search "CMD", and run the "cmd" program), go to the path you selected at first step, then run the following command:

setup.exe /download configuration.xml

And now it will start to download Office. It may take a long time, so don't close the window before it says done.

When the download is finished, congratulation, you had download the Office 365 / 2013

Here is the step of How to install Office using the offline installation package:

1. Go to the path you download Office, go to Office directory, go to Data directory, you will find a folder name with numbers. record this number.

2. Go to the path you download Office, use text editor to open configuration.xml, delete all the content and copy the following content into it:

  <Add SourcePath="C:\Office15\" Version="15.0.4481.1005" OfficeClientEdition="64" >
    <Product ID="ProfessionalRetail">
      <Language ID="en-us" />
  <Display Level="Full" AcceptEULA="TRUE" />

In here, you need to change the following staff:

  • Change SourcePath, OfficeClientEdition, Product ID and Language ID to the same things when you download Office.
  • Change Version to the numbers you recorded in the first step.

3. Open "Command Line", go to the path you download Office, then run the following command:

setup.exe /configure configuration.xml

Thank you so much dude, i've been searching for that for 2 days now. I can't believe that Microsoft put a "setup" file that is not working and don't even have an article that at least mentionned it.

Great job,

Best Regards!
