If you are installing it from Microsoft website then the answer is Yes. Microsoft will ask you to pass validation. If you have a stand alone copy of it, then you have to disconnect your PC from Internet and istall it, in such cases it's better to have firewall (windows firewall doesn't work in such cases).
