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.

        I am really s****d. I forgot to write that I would like to ask if there is a method for MacOs?
        Thank you and sorry for my bad first question.

    1. kWong

      Run the batch file must connect internet and with admin right.

      Only few words, no one can help you to solve any problem.

    Thanks! It works, but there is also a prompt for me to sign in my Office 365 and it says that there is authentication error. Is there anything I should do about it?

    1. kWong

      Install Office 2019 won’t come up prompt for sign in Office 365. If you install Office 365 in Windows 10, it will automatic upgrade to Office 2019 after installation of office 365.

      No need to install stand alone Office 2019.

      What is the error you get? Full description please.

      1. Natsuki

        “There was a problem checking this device’s license status. Please sign in with the Office 364 account this device was activated with.”

        I am using an existing software with the previous license expired. It worked for a while when I followed your guide a few months back but the message popped up every time. MS Office locked all features today and I logged out of all accounts and re-ran your script and it worked again, but with the same message.

        1. kWong

          licence expired won’t work anymore, normal.

          Control panel, uninstall all office software.

          restart PC

          If you use Windows 10, install Office 365, will upgrade to office 2019. after installation Office 365, use Office 365 batch file to activate, will become office 365 base office 2019 version, you still have future office upgrade and new feature add.

    I do like the wonderful script, but I wonder, how can I modify it to make it stop by it self, so no user action is required. It’s for creating an automated task in windows…
