The Excel team has made some changes necessary to the Excel code that allows Power Pivot and Power View to run in Excel Stand-Alone version. So you can now purchase a retail SKU that has Power Pivot and Power View in them. The Excel 2013 box (aka Excel 2013 standalone SKU) will now include the add-ins when installed. This will be the first offering of Excel that will allow you to go to the store and physically buy Power Pivot and Power View embedded in Excel 2013. If you have already purchased this SKU, the next time Office updates via Click-to-Run, you will have the add-ins.
For more information on what version of Office contain Power Pivot and Power View see this blog post on the Excel support team blog. These are the SKU’s that have both add-ins:
- Office 2013 Professional Plus (available through Volume Licensing, MSDN and TechNet subscriptions)
- Office 365 Professional Plus – available as standalone subscription
- Office 365 Professional Plus (available as part of the Office 365 Mid-Size Business, Office 365 Enterprise Plan 3, or Office 365 Enterprise Plan 4 offerings)
- Excel Stand-alone 32-bit and 64-bit
