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.

  1. Mister me

    I install visio 2019 and I have a problem. I follow all the steps.

    And before applying the KMS it asks me the product key and tells me that I have until 18th of august… After KMS no product key is asked but… It says I have no licence… but i can use the app. I have no expiration date. but it says not activated.

    What do you think ?

    I activated my Project Professional 2019 with your KMS licence a few months ago, but as i tried to activate it again via the cmd file, it didn’t work. I tried making the cmd file again by copying the code at your site, but still no result. The cmd file says that the activation was successful, but when I open Project, it still says that the product is not activated.

    Please help me, my job is at risk here

    Hi Guang,
    I have downloaded, using your link Office 2019, Project 2019, Visio 2019, and following your registration procedure, I was able to register Office but no Project and Visio. Now, I found the new instruction to register them; but, as you described “Step 1” is similar to the office registration then your “Step 2” is not clear at all. Where we have to get the codes to paste into the batch file from? And how this step relates to step 1?

      Copy the KMS code into a new text document. You need copy the appropriate code for your product.

      Create a new text document.

      Paste the code into the text file. Then save it as a batch file with cmd extension. (eg “1click.cmd”).

      Run the batch file with administrator rights.

      Please wait…

      Done.
