Default install new interface language

I downloaded the hebrew language pack for my version of office, but it won't install. It says I am running the "preview" version of office, and I can't install a language pack on it.


True that I once had that version, but now, I am running an activated professional plus with all updates.

I then tried downloading a full installation file for hebrew office 2013, and choosing the "repair" option instead of "install". It "repaired" everything, but I still don't have an option for hebrew interface in the language tools.

Is there a way to manually install the language interface files I need?

When you have two or more office versions installed (or not fully uninstalled) the resources they share can cause confusion when you try to install peripheral software. You need to ensure that the 'preview' version is completely uninstalled, reboot and then repair your paid for version, before attempting to install the language pack.

If you search the web for uninstall your undisclosed preview version completely, you will find a Microsoft 'fix-it' link to remove it.

If the preview version is the same as your paid fro version, it will probably remove both versions so then you need to ensure that you have the media and product key to hand to enable you to re-install before proceeding.

okay, but I really don't want to reinstall Office and lose my customizations and add-ons and all that stuff.
I have a ISO with the full Hebrew-language Office 2013 on it. If I would mount the ISO file, shouldn't I be able copy and paste the files I need?

You cannot install applications by copying a few files.

Re-installing Office should have no effect on your personalisations, which is why it is rarely a cure for problems, but in this case you have a conflict that needs to be resolved and that is likely to remove essential Office files or even all files if the two versions are of the same product release.

thanks much!
I installed the hebrew\english version of office on top of my present, english-only version, and it went smooth and quick. everything seems to work just like it did before, including add-ons and personalizations. And I now have an option for hebrew interface, which I needed for a certain user account!
that was easier than I thought.
