    MS doesn't take any feedback or suggestions about Office 2016 at the moment, it is listed under "Non-feedback Product" category
    It's listed as "Non-feedback product" because they're not using the built-in Connect forums (which is a very good thing) but they are accepting Office feedback via the MSDN forums

    I finally got Office 2016 Preview installed.

    Clean install, Build 10041. Same issues, could not install. I disabled LAN and connected WiFi to my Windows Phone's shared mobile connection. Got the same error about not being connected when the installation showed 53%, enabled LAN again and finally installation finished successfully.

    Strange.

    Hi there

    I must be the only one on this Forum who'se got it working AND ACTIVATED -- I got direct link when it first appeared (since gone - Ms took it down after a few hours).

    Mine was already activated (although clearly Office 2016 is says Office 2013 in the activation). I neither have office 2013 nor a subscription for Office 365. I don't have an MSDN subscription either.

    I rather like it -- better choice of themes --dark grey is fine for me. Office 2010 works concurrently with it --note if you have BOTH installed and you use OUTLOOK it uses the SAME outlook file and settings as Office 2010 so you don't lose any emails / address books or individual emails. You can use either outlook 2016 or outlook 2010 but not at the same time (outlook file) but things like EXCEL work in both versions at the same time.

    Note I installed the 64 Bit version and selected the PRO version at install not the Small business edition.

    Visio / Project don't activate but the rest of mine are fine.

    screenshot enc -- it's clearly office 2016 even though the activation says Office 2013 !!!!!

    Excel screenshot added too

    Cheers

    I had the Office 2016 preview working without issues until today. Now suddenly all Office apps show this:

    Clicking it away (closing without product key or email) the apps continue working, just showing the Reactivate notification below the ribbon. Trying to "reactivate", either with a valid product key for 2013 Professional Plus or using the O365 for B. email address originally used to join the Preview gives this:

    Actually you can try it without for a few days if you are interested. My install expires on the 15th Feb.

    @Vladimir - probably you shouldn't post screenshots
    If you have signed an NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement) you should probably not even admit you're testing a product, whether Microsoft, Adobe, Brother, etc. Certainly, you cannot post screenshots, nor can you post anything from the private group(s) that testers are usually a part of.

    I did follow the link posted by Neowin and found an Office for Home that might not require an Office 365 subscription; I haven't a clue since I didn't click on it.

    They also have the Word, Excel and Powerpoint for Windows 10 in the store for Download. Now I downloaded them 2 builds ago and the worked in the last build and not in the newest build 10049 but a few of the modern apps don't work in the build. I believe the leaked build 10051 the modern apps will work better. Now Word, Excel and PP may work after a clean install to Build 10049. I've been upgrading build after build and didn't do a clean ISO install since the first install.

    I haven't tried those in 10049, although I did in (I think) 9926. Word was so very much different than Word 2013 and Office 365 that I kinda gave up and didn't try again. Maybe I should try in the next Win 10 build.

    A new build available, it resolved at least my activation issues. Update was at least in my case installed automatically:
