Office 2016 is the latest version in the Microsoft Office family. Microsoft focuses entirely on distribution with online installers, and makes it extremely hard to find usable disk images for offline installation. Finally, we were able to dig out some offline installers, although, these downloads are merely images of the backup media downloads, based on the click-to-run technology.
Office 2016 Test Drive
Unbelievable, but Microsoft has not yet started giving out trial versions for Office 2016. You can, however, get trial versions for Visio 2016 and Project 2016.
- Project 2016 Professional, trial version, can be used to acticate the full product
- Visio 2016 Professional, trial version, can be used to acticate the full product
Purchase Office 2016
With the new 2013 version, Microsoft Office has brought some considerable changes. Whereas it was possible to install Office up to three computers before (depending on the edition), a license is now bound to a single computer only. Microsoft is driving the subscription model here, and restricts flexibility of the standalone editions to a minimum. I'd personally recommend to purchase Office 2010 instead, because of these licensing restrictions. Should you want to go for the new Office anyway, here are the links to Amazon:
- Office 2016 Home and Student
- Office 2016 Home and Business
- Office 2016 Professional
- Project 2016 Professional
- Visio 2016 Professional
Download Office 2016 Backup Images from Microsoft
The following links point to the official download server officecdn.microsoft.com. Instead of ISO format, they come as IMG images. These files are pure backup media, and can't be installed without a retail product key.
The IMG images are not the same as the "Single Image" downloads that used to be available from Digital River, but offline versions of the streaming "Click-to-Run" version, with all disadvantages associated with that. If your required download is not included here (such as Office 2016 Professional Plus) please proceed to the download instructions here.
