    Retail. After the upgrade I got an msi installer saying "configuring Microsoft Office".

    Exactly!! After configuring, my Office needs to be activated.

    Anyway, thanks for clearing the doubt.

    After configuring, mine didn't need re-activation, it just worked. It is a phone activated copy.

    Also, I don't know if this helped, but my office was connected to my live account before the upgrade. I know for a fact, that after an activation by MS, if you link a live account the activation is also linked to your account. So if Office 2013 somehow deactivates, you are offered an option to activate with Windows Live credentials.

    Read, and if that's not the problem you need to deliver actual information whats "nothing" "everything is same", what you are doing.

    Again I say, just do as directed.

    You need to do a 'downgrade' using installation media after using this tool.
