    It is retail channel. You need to use Channel Switcher in CODY's tool to convert it to volume first, then install it and activate.

    :)

    It is recommended to use just one Office suite at same time.

    And yes, that is how 2013 should be. If you installed the AutoKMS feature it will take care of activation on every boot. KMS is 180 days, so each reboot you should get 180 days :)

    You don't have to run it as an auto start service you could just fire up Microsoft Toolkit every 170 days and run it manually :)

    very true. just remember to run it once and a while, no need to install autokms.

    Otherwise, the Office will remind you when you have 30 or less days before expiration (of the 180 day period).
