How to install and use Project / Visio (2016/2019) without product key

Posted by in Microsoft Software Products | Last updated on


The majority of Microsoft software products have a 30-days trial in order to let the user try them for free. This allow users to see the value of the product and if they have been happy with it, they might consider paying for a license. However, spending hundreds of dollars is big problem for people having very low incomes, particularly in some of the poorest regions. If you are students/teachers and your school is part of the program, you will have a chance to use most Microsoft products at no cost. And if you are not a beneficiary of this program, using KMS method is a perfect solution you can consider.
In today’s post, I will go into detail on how to download and use Visio, Project (2016/2019) without product key. First of all, you can download the latest version here if you dont have it already. Because it is stored as an ISO file so once your download completes, you have to extract it. Then just run the setup file to begin installing like you normally would.
After successful installation, you will get be enrolled in a 30 day free monthly trial. When the trial ends, the most important features will be disabled and you have to purchase a license key to continue using the service.
But what is really amazing is that you can easily get a free 6 months license by using KMS method. Importantly, you can renew the license easily when the period has expired (*). Just follow the instructions below exactly and make sure your internet connection is active.

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

    Can i use this method with my paid subscription of O365? The problem is that i have paid for O365 from work, but doesn’t have Visio. If i use the above method, will my computer get confused with calling two different KMS? Thanks.

      1 , Upgrade Office 365 to Office 2016 or Office 2019. It become Office 365 base Office 2016 or Office 2019. It sitll can upgrade to future version of Office.

      2, then Install Office 2016 or Office 2019 Project and Visio, use the above method to activated.

      3, Done.

    followed all your step and installed it on my laptop. All office app including Microsoft project is working except that it shows “Activation Required”, “This product is unlicensed. Connect to your corporate network or contact your system administrator for further assistance”
    Can I just leave it like this? There is no date of expiration written anyway

      The only reason is you got more than a copy visio and project pro 2019 in your PC.

      Just keep one copy , uninstall all need to activate visio and project pro 2019 from your PC.

    I followed all your step and installed it on my laptop (I uninstalled first my previous office 2016). All office app including Microsoft project is working except that it shows “Activation Required”, “This product is unlicensed.
