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.

    I have tried to follow these steps but when I run as administrator the cmd screen never opened, some popups blinks in some milli seconds and vanish.
    Tried on: windows 10 Home version 1803
    Office used: Version : 1152.18.1903.0

    Any solutions?

      If you fail activate one time, and not uninstall it first and install a new office program again. After you success activate it this time. But only the not activate Office program will pop up.

          That meant besides office 2019 , cannot have other copy of office 2019 in the same PC. Otherwise, only the one haven’t activate will pop up.

          Before install office 2019, you need to uninstall all old version Office program in your PC.

    Installed and activated successful via the code, however it still says activation required and that it is unlicensed. All programs work fine without limitations and it doesn’t say that it is trial version or it will stop after certain time.

      Run KMS Server must first get approval from Microsoft. Otherwise , Microsoft will open law suit to close the web site here.

      Free to use doesn’t mean illegal, welcome to use it.

      Update is from Microsoft.

      Activation will automatic renew back to 180 days when you browsing internet.

    If I uninstall my current MS Office Pro 2016, and install office 2019; how can I transfer all I have in MS Office Pro 2016?

    Reply
    1. kWong

      No need to do anything. Uninstall Office 2016 is only uninstall Office 2016 software.

      Any data you create will still in your PC.

      After uninstall Office 2016, restart PC.

      Then install Office 2019, will automatic recognise all the office data you create earlier by Office 2016.

    Hi,

    Office 2010 is already installed in the system.
    As per the article, we need to uninstall the older version first. That is fine.

    But once the Office 2019 is activated, Can we reinstall the Office 2010 ?
    Would that create a problem for Office 2019 ?

      Right-click the taskbar and then click “Task Manager.” Once the task manager has been opened, find the Cortana process under the Processes tab, and click on the “End task” button. The above action will restart the Cortana process, and you might as well solve the start menu search problem.

    hi, I have minimal storage and I wondered if installation can be launched on a external storage ? I have changed all settings where to download and install programs however when CD\DVD launches it will go directly to main hard drive C.

    thanks

    Reply
    1. kWong

      When you install software it will create registry items within the Windows folders, which are on the main drive, usually the C drive. So, if you want to be able to run Office on different computers via the external hard drive, it may fail due to the lack of essential registry contents.

      Transfer to external drive only can do after installation complete.

      To be able to mount the SD Card as a Permanent Storage it must be formatted to the same file system as your computer’s main storage file system. For Windows 10 case the main file system is NTFS., otherwise cannot choose to install Office 2019.
