    So far I know...

    From Office 2013 Home & Student Microsoft is no longer making DVD based boxed copies, instead a card with a scratch off PIN number is purchased and entered at the Office.com website which then requires a Microsoft account to be provided/created so the license can be linked permanently to it.

    No product key is issued at any stage and no option is given to download the 500mb installation files for use at a later date or on a different PC.

    The whole process is automated and the files/activation are handled by a MS download manager.

    If anyone has any idea how an offline installer could be created / obtained I would be interested to hear how.

    The Pro Plus ISO's are rejected when used with a MS account that has a Home and Student license issued to it and there are no details of any images on MSDN.

    Anyone with ideas?

    Clearly this doesn't help.

    I have discovered that this version of office begins installation before the download actually finishes. It goes out of its way to prevent anyone from obtaining the whole program.

    This is such a stupid idea from Microsoft, making you waste bandwidth.

    If you purchase 3 copies of Office Home & Student 2013 and want to install it on 3 different computers, you have to download 500MB+ worth of data 3 times.

    Sooner or later, someone will find the direct link to download the actual installer file. We just have to wait.

    Is there a way to capture the temp directory Microsoft downloads everything into?

    Can you guys install the editions you want, and upload the whole MSOCache directory?

    I may be able to acquire the files from that to make an installer.

    Note that Pro Plus, Visio Pro, and Project Pro are widely released as Retail and VL, so don't bother uploading that.

    PS: If it is Click To Run, it won't work likely.

    Here is something interesting that I found in the MS Office 2013 FAQ. I wonder if it's true. I don't have a boxed copy of Office 2013 so I cannot test this out.

    Yes I can confirm that there is an option to download a backup image - at the same time it will present your CD installation product key.
