    Is there a way to run Microsoft Office 2013 (Windows ver.) without bootcamp or running parallels?

    Just trying my luck really... I have purchased MS Office 2011 for Mac a while ago but the download link doesn't work.... :mad::mad::mad:

    There's only three ways to execute a windows program.
    1. bootcamp (booting into windows natively)
    2. VMware/Parallels (running windows virtually)
    3. CrossOver which uses Wine - a windows API emulator.

    Sounds like option 3 may be something you can try but Not many apps are fully compatible to CrossOver.

    It appears that office is one of those that won't run


    Bottom line if you want office to run, you'll need to do it via bootcamp or virtualization

    ^ This. You can certainly do it without Boot Camp or Parallels but you'll be using one of the other solutions out there.

    They're usually time limited so you need to make sure you stash the download somewhere safe.

    If you go here and sign in with your work email and your program code (your employer should have this) you should be able to get a new download link.
