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.

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 do every step of the video, but still can’t activate office, the message is an error “error code -2147217394” ant the command say that is an older version, please help

  2. Jensen Ko

    It’s works! Thank you so much. I am your big fan since i was first follow your instruction to download 2016 version, now, my version has been upgraded from 2016 to 2019. Million thanks!

  3. HDRony

    First of all, thank you very much for everything.
    I have installed and activated, but I miss OneNote 2019, even in the image shown in the installation progress is missed.
    Is it included in the professional plus version? can we download it as standalonde?

  4. P

    Thanks it worked.
    For installing 64 bit, get in to the folder in the image and run the setup64 which is the 64 bit installer.

  5. Matfink

    As per the cmd file, download and install Office Pro plus 2019 (32&64bit) from this page
    Note that the first right click of the cmd file does not show the “Run as Administrator” option and if you run it, it says “your version is not compatible”. The second time you can right click the cmd file and get the “Run as Administrator” option and this time it works.
    Thanks Guang!

    I tried it.
    But when I reboot my pc for updates, it didn’t work anymore.
    I could not log into the pc.
    Suddenly a blue screen showed up and reboot again.
    It broke the system image and now I have to reinstall Windows from external storage.
    Too bad.

    Confirmed working on Windows 7 with Disabling Updates.
    Also confirmed working on Windows 8.1 with updates enabled.
    Well, only use the Office 365 image.

  8. Luiza

    Amazing! It works.
    And actually, I didn’t even had to install the newest version. I just updated my Office 365 (even without a license) and then run the code for Office 2019 and it worked. Somehow now I have Office 2019 activated. 😀 Thanks!

    I downloaded office pro plus 2019 from pirate bay. It has x86+x64 version(iso files). When I run it, it hangs at 2%. What could be the problem. Please help

  10. oddity

    it does not work anymore?

    i followed all order and i saw the successful message

    but when i checked the license option it required license as ever

  11. Ilanio Castro

    Just to tell you an interesting thing.

    If you use the Office 2019 KMS Key (that you supply in your script) to activate Office 2016, it will be activated and when you start it, It will display Microsoft Office 2019 (even installed on Windows 8 or Windows 7).

    So I think both versions of office are not too different…
