Hi,

just a thought but you may want to give this a go: http://www.intowindows.com/change-default-installation-directory-in-windows-7-vista/

then try installing again and see if it makes a difference.

Thanks,
Marcus

Any normal install of Office 2013 gives the option of where to put it. I did exactly this recently. Installed it on another drive.

DVD? USB? From the first click, step by step....what options does it give?

It ends up as an exe file, right? Every single Office install I've ever seen, from Office 95 to Office 2013, gives multiple options on the install...What parts of Office, and specifically where to install it.

Click on the exe and what happens? What dialog boxes and tabs appear?

first the standerd do you want to run this dowloaded file and then the second do you want to let it make changes and then it starts instaling makes you watch a video and finishes instaling all without ever giving you acess to any buttons but next and cancel

What is the full filename of the downloaded file?
I've never, ever seen an Office install that does not give that option. And I've done it dozens, of not hundreds, of times.
