Microsoft Office Version Numbers (two styles)

There are two styles of naming versions of Micrsoft Office software, the Retail name, and the “code name” which matches actual folder name where it’s stored:

  • Retail: Eg: Microsoft Office 2013
  • Code / Folder name: Eg: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15
Retail Code Name / Folder
2003 11
2007 12
2010 13
[skipped] 14
2013 15
2016 16 (They sorta match for the first time)
