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 8.1 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

    Hi Guang,
    Many thanks for this high quality topics. In addition of it, I would like to know what was the issue to automatically renew the KMS license of Office 2019 in order to avoid the manually process after 180 days? Thanks in advance for your great support. Best regards

    Do you have an UNINSTALL script similar to these? I’d like to clean remove an install and then install it again on a few systems without having to manually use add/remove programs on each system.

    Tried it in 4 different PCs and your method was succesful in all 4. I want to say that in all my experiments i had to do with fresh installations of genuine win 10 so i don’t know if i had to uninstall some other office product first if this would be the cause of getting any error. And generally speaking be patient with the cmd script. 3 times worked for me by first effort, and in one pc i executed 3 times. some times it takes a little time to connect so do not say in a few seconds it doesn’t work, have a little patience people. Kudos man for your time to share this trick with community so we can avoid all these crap activators that infect our pc.

    Thanks for your time and efforts. This worked flawlessly for me.

    You mentioned that the license is only valid for 180 days but can be renewed automatically. How does this process work? Do I have to do something every 180 days in order to renew the license?

    Best wishes,

    Hi Guang !

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge!
    I have used MSO 2019 for maybe 50 days now and for the last week I have gotten warning messages regarding the product Key. I tried to enter the KMS you provided (NMMKJ-6RK4F-KMJVX-8D9MJ-6MWKP) but is not working and it pops up a message that says that this key is for the volume license and the days count down continues. Long story short, the clock is ticking and I am afraid I will not be able to use MS office 2019 anymore for free.
    What can I do ? any tips or tricks ?

    Kind Regards,
    AA.

    I have the pre-installed version of Office 2019 in my Surface Pro 5 and I’ve been updating my office apps since then. Should I install the version of Office 2019 in this site in order for me to activate this product?

    perfect.. everything went right. i didn’t know that activating was that easy. i am and old school user and i infected my PC with a Trojan (searching for a crack.exe) before i reached your website. but firstly i needed to uninstall the reloaded office that comes with my ACER C22, because it was a newer version build 1810. i will save a copy from your version and the code.

    Hello.
    I tried to update copying only the license, but says that is not possible since probably belongs to another version.
    What should I do?

    Something I noticed by accident:

    If you try these instructions in Windows 7, you get an error message when you run the install program saying you need Windows 10.

    If you then follow the instructions for installing Office 2016, but then activate it as Office 2019, you do actually get Office 2019. The =SWITCH() formula is new to Excel 2019, I tried it out, and it works.

    If you already have Office 2016 installed, you can just remove the 2016 licence and replace it with a 2019 licence to upgrade and get the new features. Uninstalling and software and reinstalling doesn’t actually work, because uninstalling doesn’t remove the old 2016 licence.

    This method of activation doesn’t interfere with Windows 10 licence, right? I have genuine Windows, so I’m a bit worried about it.

      IF you are using windows 10, save it .bat and NOT .cmd for example office2019.bat instead of office2019.cmd then run as administrator

      You have to be sure, that you close office completely. After that you have to run the bat file as admin. If it still doesn’t work, just uninstall and reinstall it.
