How do I download and install Office?

If you're looking for the steps to download and install the latest version of Office such as Microsoft 365, Office 2021, Office 2019, or Office 2016, see Install Office on your PC or Mac.

If you want to download and install Office 2013 or Office for Mac 2011, see Install Office 2013 on a PC or Install Office for Mac 2011.

How do I reinstall Office?

If you're reinstalling Office on a different computer than the one where you originally installed Office, note the following:

  • For Office 365 subscriptions: You can install Office on all your devices and sign in to Office on five devices at the same time.

  • For a one-time purchase of Office such as Office Home & Business, Office Home & Student, or Office Professional: You can install Office on only 1 PC or Mac. However, you may transfer Office 2021, 2019, 2016 or 2013 to another computer that belongs to you if you experience a hardware failure or you buy a new computer. For more information, see the Microsoft License Terms for your product, or see this blog post, Office now transferable.

When you're ready to reinstall Office, sign in at https://www.office.com/signin with the same Microsoft account you originally associated with your Office product when you first installed it. You can also find installation steps here:

For the latest version of Office, see Install Office on your PC or Mac.

For Office 2013 or Office for Mac 2011, see Reinstall Office 2013 on a PC or Reinstall Office for Mac 2011.

Problems while trying to install Office

If you encountered a problem while installing Office on a PC, try restarting your computer and then attempting to install Office again. If that didn't help, use this easy fix tool to uninstall Office completely. After your uninstall is complete, try reinstalling Office.

Uninstall Office using easy fix

  1. Select the button below to download and install the Office uninstall support tool.

  2. Follow the steps below to download the uninstall support tool according to your browser.

    Tip: The tool may take a few minutes to download and install. After completing the installation, the Uninstall Office products window will open.

    Edge or Chrome

    • In the lower-lower left corner right-click SetupProd_OffScrub.exe > Open.

    Edge (older) or Internet Explorer

    • At the bottom of the browser window, select Run to launch the SetupProd_OffScrub.exe.

    Firefox

    • In the pop-up window, select Save Fileand then from the upper-right browser window, select the downloads arrow > SetupProd_OffScrub.exe.

  3. Select the version you want to uninstall, and then select Next.

  4. Follow through the remaining screens and when prompted, restart your computer.

    After you restart your computer, the uninstall tool automatically re-opens to complete the final step of the uninstall process. Follow the remaining prompts.

  5. Select the steps for the version of Office you want to install or reinstall. Close the uninstall tool.

    Microsoft 365 Office 2021 Office 2019 Office 2016 Office 2013 Office 2010 Office 2007

If Office still won't install, check that your computer meets the system requirements to install Office. For example, you can't install Office on computers running Windows XP or Windows Vista.

If you're still unable to install Office following the steps in Download and install or reinstall Office try using the offline installer.

The Office offline installer may help bypass potential proxy, firewall, antivirus, or Internet connection issues that might occur during an Office installation.

For steps to install an offline version of Office, see Use the Office offline installer and select the correct tab for your version of Office.

Computers running Windows Vista or Windows XP don't meet system requirements to install Office

You can't install Office 2016 or Office 2013 on computers running Windows Vista or Windows XP as these operating systems don't meet the system requirements for Office. Attempting to install Office on a computer running an unsupported operating system will result in an error. (If you're interested in learning more about the latest version of Windows, see Windows 10 specifications for details.)

If your computer can't install the full desktop version of Office because your computer doesn't meet the system requirements, you can try using Office Online in your computer's browser. See the supported browser section on the system requirements page.

Can I install Office on a Chromebook?

You can't install the desktop PC or Mac versions of Office on your Chromebook, but depending on your Chromebook you may be able to install the Office mobile apps. See Install Microsoft Office on a Chromebook.

You don't want to install all the Office applications

When you install Office 2016 or Office 2013, all the applications that came with your particular Office product are installed at the same time. You can’t custom select which Office applications you want to install or not install, nor you can't delete individual applications after your installation is complete. However, you can delete shortcuts to applications you don’t plan to use.

Tip: If you discover you need an application that didn't come with your Office product, you have the option to purchase a stand-alone application. For example, you may decide you need Access or Outlook, but those applications weren't included in your product. To purchase a stand-alone application, go to https://products.office.com/ and do a search for the app you want to buy.

You want to install Office on a drive other than the C: drive

You can only install Office on the system drive where your operating system is installed. That’s usually your C: drive.

Install the 64-bit version of Office instead of the 32-bit version

You may get an error if you try to install the 64-bit version of Office and you currently have the 32-bit version installed (or vice versa).

Therefore, if you previously installed the 32-bit version of Office on your PC, but decide you now want the 64-bit version, or vice versa, you'll have to uninstall the bit version you don't want and then reinstall the bit version you do want instead. Use this easy fix to uninstall Office.

  1. Select the button below to download the Office uninstall support tool.

  2. Follow the steps to open the download according to your browser, and when you're prompted in the Application Install window, select Install, and then I agree for the Microsoft Services Agreement.

    Tip: The tool may take a few minutes to download and install. After completing the installation, the Uninstall Office products window will open.

    Edge or Chrome

    • In the lower-lower left corner right-click SetupProd_OffScrub.exe > Open.

    Edge (older)

    • At the bottom of the browser window, select Run to launch the SetupProd_OffScrub.exe.

    Firefox

    • In the pop-up window, select Save Fileand then from the upper-right browser window, select the downloads arrow > SetupProd_OffScrub.exe.

  3. From the Uninstall Office products window, select the version of Office you want to uninstall, and then select Next.

  4. Follow the prompts on the remaining screens and when prompted, restart your computer.

    After you restart your computer, the uninstall tool automatically re-opens to complete the final step of the uninstall process. Follow the remaining prompts.

If you're looking for the steps to install the 64-bit version of Office, see the section, Step 1: Sign in to download Office.

For Office 2013, see Install Office 2013 on a PC.

If you're not sure how to decide between 64-bit or 32-bit, see Choose the 64-bit or 32-bit version of Office 2016.

You get a KERNEL32.dll error when trying to install Office and other system requirement issues

If you're trying to install Office on a computer running Windows XP or Windows Vista, you may get an error that says the dynamic library KERNEL 32.dll can't be located. This occurs because newer versions of Office aren't supported on these versions of Windows. For more information, see Why can’t I install Office 365, or Office 2019, 2016, or on Windows XP or Windows Vista?

Check that your computer meets the minimum system requirements to install Office. See System requirements for Office for a list of additional requirements.

If you're not sure which operating system you have, see Which Windows operating system am I running? or Find the OS X version and build number on your Mac.

If your computer can't install the full desktop version of Office because it doesn't meet the system requirements, you can try using Office Online in your computer's browser.

For other solutions, see Install button doesn't install Office.

I get a 'Stop, you should wait to install Office 2016' error

This error can occur if you haven't updated Office 2013 to the latest version or you have a standalone 2013 app which is already included in the newer Office 2016 suite of apps.

How do I download and install or reinstall Office?

If you're looking for the steps to download and install the latest version of Office, see Install Office on your PC or Mac.

After February 28, 2017 you won't be able to install Office 2013 as part of your subscription. See Office 2013 will no longer be available for installation with an Office 365 subscription for more details including what the Office 365 admin in your organization can do if you must reinstall Office 2013.

I have a subscription for Project or Visio. How do I download and install them?

Project and Visio aren't currently supported on a Mac.

To install Project Online Professional or Project Online Premium on your PC, see the section Download and install Project.

To install Visio Pro for Office 365 on your PC, see Download and install Visio Pro for Office 365.

After February 28, 2017 you won't be able to install Project 2013 or Visio 2013 as part of your subscription. See Office 2013 will no longer be available for installation with an Office 365 subscription for more details including what the Office 365 admin in your organization can do if you must reinstall the 2013 versions of Project or Visio.

You don't want to install all the Office applications

When you install Office 365, all the applications that came with your particular Office product is installed at the same time. You can’t custom select which Office applications you want to install or not install, nor you can't delete individual applications after your installation is complete. However, you can delete shortcuts to applications you don’t plan to use.

Tip: If you discover you need an application that didn't come with your Office product, you have the option to purchase a stand-alone application. For example, you may decide you need Access or Outlook, but those applications weren't included in your product. To purchase a stand-alone application, go to https://products.office.com/ and do a search for the stand-alone app you want to buy.

You want to install Office on a drive other than the C: drive

You can only install Office on the system drive where your operating system is installed. That’s usually your C: drive.

Install the 64-bit version of Office instead of the 32-bit version

If you previously installed the 32-bit version of Office on your PC, but decide you now want the 64-bit version, you'll have to uninstall 32-bit and then reinstall the 64-bit version of Office. To uninstall the 32-bit version use this easy fix to uninstall Office.

  1. Select the button below to download the Office uninstall support tool.

  2. Follow the steps to open the download according to your browser, and when you're prompted in the Application Install window, select Install, and then I agree for the Microsoft Services Agreement.

    Tip: The tool may take a few minutes to download and install. After completing the installation, the Uninstall Office products window will open.

    Edge or Chrome

    • In the lower-lower left corner right-click SetupProd_OffScrub.exe > Open.

    Edge (older)

    • At the bottom of the browser window, select Run to launch the SetupProd_OffScrub.exe.

    Firefox

    • In the pop-up window, select Save Fileand then from the upper-right browser window, select the downloads arrow > SetupProd_OffScrub.exe.

  3. From the Uninstall Office products window, select the version of Office you want to uninstall, and then select Next.

  4. Follow the prompts on the remaining screens and when prompted, restart your computer.

    After you restart your computer, the uninstall tool automatically re-opens to complete the final step of the uninstall process. Follow the remaining prompts.

If you're looking for the steps to install the 64-bit version of Office, see the section, Step 1: Sign in to download Office.

If you're not sure how to decide between 64-bit or 32-bit, see Choose the 64-bit or 32-bit version of Office 2016.

If Office still won't install, check that your computer meets the system requirements to install Office. For example, you can't install Office on computers running Windows XP or Windows Vista.

If you're still unable to install Office following the steps in Download and install or reinstall Office try using the offline installer.

The Office offline installer may help bypass potential proxy, firewall, antivirus, or Internet connection issues that might occur during an Office installation.

For steps to install an offline version of Office, see Use the Office offline installer and select the correct tab for your version of Office.

You can't install Access

If you can't find Access on your computer even though its included with your Office 365 subscription, try the following in the order listed.

Follow the steps in Install Office on your PC or Mac. If you need to install the 64-bit version, select the PC step-by-step tab and expand the section, 'Install or reinstall an Office for business product.'

If you have problems installing Office, you may need to uninstall it first and then reinstall it. See the section above, For problems while installing Office

You don't see an option to install Office, check if you have a license

  1. If you're not already signed in, go to http://admin.microsoft.com and sign in with your work or school account.

    Note: If you're unable to sign in with your work or school account, you may be signing in to the wrong Office 365 service, see Where to sign in to Office 365.

  2. From the browser header, go to Settings > My app settings > Office 365.

  3. On the My account page, select Subscriptions.

    You’ll see the services that you're licensed to use, such as the latest desktop version of Office, SharePoint Online or OneDrive for Business, and Exchange Online. If you don't see The latest desktop version of Office in the list (or Project or Visio if your organization has a plan that includes those applications) your admin probably hasn't assigned an Office license to you. If you're an admin, see Assign licenses to users in Office 365 for business. For more information, see What Office 365 business product or license do I have?

    If you have a license, then you're ready to Install Office on your PC or Mac, (or Project Online Desktop Client or Visio Pro for Office 365).

Not all Office 365 subscription plans come with the fully installed Office applications. See the bottom of the Office for business column for a list of plans that don't include the Office desktop client. If your organization has one of these Microsoft 365 plans, the Office 365 admin can switch to a different Office 365 plan or subscription or buy another Office 365 for business subscription for users in an organization who require the full version of Office.

If you're an admin and you aren't sure what plan you have, follow the steps in What Office 365 for business subscription do I have? For a comparison of plans, see compare small business plans or compare enterprise plans.

You're a student or teacher and don't see an option to install Office

If you're a student or teacher and don't see an option to install Office, you may be eligible for Office 365 Education, which includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. All you need to get started is a valid school email address. For more information, see Get Office 365 for free.

Be sure to check the System requirements for Office. For example, you can't install Office on computers running Windows Vista or Windows XP, or on devices that aren't running a supported Windows or Mac operating system. However, you may still be able to use Office Online in your computer's browser.

Computers running Windows Vista or Windows XP don't meet system requirements to install Office

You can't install Office 2016 or Office 2013 on computers running Windows Vista or Windows XP as these operating systems don't meet the system requirements for Office. Attempting to install Office on a computer running an unsupported operating system will result in an error. (If you're interested in learning more about the latest version of Windows, see Windows 10 specifications for details.)

If your computer can't install the full desktop version of Office because your computer doesn't meet the system requirements, you can try using Office Online in your computer's browser. See the supported browser section on the system requirements page.

Office install hangs or is stuck at 90%

If Office is taking a long time to install you may be on a slow connection or you another install or update may be happening in the background. See Office is taking long to install or Office hangs at 90% for possible solutions.

You get a KERNEL32.dll error when trying to install Office and other system requirement issues

Check that your computer meets the minimum system requirements to install Office. See System requirements for Office for a list of additional requirements.

If you're trying to install Office on a computer running Windows XP or Windows Vista, you may get an error that says the dynamic library KERNEL 32.dll can't be located. This occurs because newer versions of Office aren't supported on these versions of Windows. For more information, see Why can’t I install Office 2013 or Office 2016 on Windows XP or Windows Vista?

If you're not sure which operating system you have, see Which Windows operating system am I running? or Find the OS X version and build number on your Mac.

If your computer can't install the full desktop version of Office because it doesn't meet the system requirements, you can try using Office Online in your computer's browser.

I get a 'Stop, you should wait to install Office 2016' error

If you connect to an Exchange 2007 mailbox (which reached End of Life on April 11, 2017), you might want to stay on Office 2013 until you upgrade from Exchange 2007. See the following:

I'm an Office 365 admin and don't have an option to install Office, Project, or Visio

When you first sign up for Office 365 for business and you try to install Office (or Project or Visio if you also have a subscription for those apps) you might see a message that says you can't install Office because you don't have a license. This could happen because of a delay between your initial sign in and Office 365 for business setting up your environment. Try signing out of Office 365 and then signing back in.

It could also happen because you haven't assigned a license to yourself or your users. Do the following to check your licenses.

Check that you have a license

  1. If you're not already signed in, go to http://admin.microsoft.com and sign in with your work or school account.

    Note: If you're unable to sign in with your work or school account, you may be signing in to the wrong Office 365 service, see Where to sign in to Office 365.

  2. From the browser header, go to Settings > My app settings > Office 365.

  3. On the My account page, select Subscriptions.

    You’ll see the services that you're licensed to use, such as the latest desktop version of Office, Project, Visio, SharePoint Online or OneDrive for Business, and Exchange Online. If you don't see The latest desktop version of Office in the list (or Project or Visio if you bought plans with those applications), see Assign licenses to users in Office 365 for business.

Not all Office 365 subscription plans come with the fully installed Office applications. See the bottom of the Office for business column for a list of those plans that don't include an installed version of Office. If your organization has one of these Microsoft 365 plans, as the admin, you can switch to a different Office 365 plan or subscription, or in addition to the subscription you already have, buy another Office 365 for business subscription for those users who require the full version of Office.

If you're not sure what plan you have, follow the steps in What Office 365 for business subscription do I have? For a comparison of plans, see Office for business.
