Install and activate Office 2019 for FREE legally using Volume license

Posted by in Microsoft Software Products | Last updated on Sticky


After a series of preview versions, Microsoft finally came out with an official version of Office 2019. It is stable one, this means you can download and use it right now without worrying about fatal errors which you have gotten in beta versions before. However, I regret to inform that according to the disclosures, Microsoft Office 2019 only works on Windows 10. So if you are using Windows 8 or older versions, you will not be able to install it. Honestly, I hate what Microsoft have done to force users to use Windows 10. And I think Office 2016 is still a good choice for casual users at the moment.

How to download Office 2019 from Microsoft homepage

If you have an Office 365 subscription, your Office will be upgraded to the latest version automatically without doing anything. However, if you are using Office 2016 or earlier versions, to make sure that Office 2019 will work normally, please uninstall your old version of Office completely before starting a new installation. If you do not have Office 2019 already, just go here to get official download link from Microsoft homepage and select the version you want.

Installing Office 2019 without a product key

After the download process is complete, you will get an image file. Just open it then run the setup file to install Office 2019 on your PC.

run setup file of office 2019

allow office 2019 installer

This may take a while, please wait.

office 2019 installation progress

Upon successful installation, you can open any Office program to verify some basic information.

Just skip the “enter product key” window by clicking close button at the top right corner.

enter office 2019 product key

accept office 2019 license agreement

And as you can see, I am using Office Professional Plus 2019 and the trial license will expire in 7 days.

trial license expires in 7 daysmost features will be disabled

Activating Office 2019 using KMS license key

Step 1: Copy the following code into a new text document.

          Don’t have more than a copy of office program in the same PC, otherwise, only the one not activate POP UP after activation success.

      default, office 2019 is in stall in system drive (C drive) only. If you haven’t change document etc location to D Drive, Or have anything in D Drive , You can delete D Drive anytime.

      I bet you have more than 1 copy of Office version install in same PC.

      Before install office 2019, need to uninstall old version of Office version.

      Try this method fail, keep retry. Before install new copy of Office 2019, need to uninstall the fail copy.

        I removed Microsoft Office 2016 license version first cleaned up registry and any other c**p and then I installed Office 2019 it shows me that I am running Office 2019 version not 2016 (few people here encountered), I tried using your script with administration rights and it failed, I have tried it again I removed Office 2019 and also KMS license and cleaned up the registry, re-installed Office 2019 start it up got trial expired used your script running as Administrator and I got the same message again “Your version is not supported”, I have removed any firewalls and tried safe mode with Internet still fails, it probably it doesn’t work with this Office version that I downloaded yesterday or KMS Server is down or doesn’t work.

      I also had this problem. It happened to me because I didn’t run the batch file as administrator. So make sure to run the batch file as administrator.

    Thank you very much for great work! It is highly appreciated!

    However, can you please let me know how to activate Visio 2019 and Project 2019 that can also be downloaded from this site. Instructions that work for Office 2019 do not work for Vision and Project. Assistance would be highly appreciated.

      After installation when I check it says 2016, after activating, it is now 2019? Is this legit proplus 2019 version?

      1. kWong

        Standalone office 2016 can’t use Office 2019 batch file to activate. And it won’t upgrade to office 2019.

        So your office version must be office 2019.

        If using , create any problem, ask again.

    Can someone please explain what “BETA EXPIRATION: 01-Jan-1601” means when checking activation status?
    Seems hard to find some information on the net. I activated different machines with the cmd method, some machine will have this beta expiration line, while others do not. Can’t find the reason behind and what it signifies. Thanks in advance.

    1. kWong

      The main reason is not all office program install is 64 bit or 32 bit.

      You need to check office program installation location before run the batch file,

        But they are all latest downloaded version directly from MS using “setup.exe /download configuration.xml”.
        So they all come from the same downloaded version….

            Sorry, i don’t quite understand what you meant by “installation location right”, they are installed in the default location. Also, i have googled “activation BETA EXPIRATION: 01-Jan-1601”. Almost everyone shows this line, but there’s no explanation of what it means. That’s the reason i come here for help. Thanks.

          2. Kyocera

            And for your information, they both are same versions Word 2019 MSO (16.0.10343.20013) 64-bit, All downloaded from same location, activated with same method, just when checking /dstatus, one has the beta expiration line, while the other doesn’t. Both activated with 180 periods. Hope you understand what my question is Thanks. 🙂

        2. Kyocera

          Just want to clarify, It’s been activated for 180 days no problem, just don’t understand why it says: “activation BETA EXPIRATION: 01-Jan-1601” Please note that this is a rather common line in all activation, not just limited to me. I just want to find out what it signifies, not that it will cause me any trouble in using Office. Thanks.

            Follow method do it first, then reactivate.

            By the way, all KMS batch file method here not accept multiple installation Office in same PC. Office 2019 must be only copy without other Office version in the same PC.

            If your question not solve, Top click Community, create a question with picture of error, Guang will help you to solve your case.

    If you want reassurance this works then h**l yeah it does. I used the professional plus img, ran the batch file in my desktop, and it activated the entire suite right away. This method is perfect because I was hesitant to install any third-party KMS program. Using the server was much better. Thanks again for this!
