Install and activate Office 2019 for FREE legally using Volume license

After a series of preview versions, Microsoft finally came out with an official version of Office 2019. It is the 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, 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. In my opinion, 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 img file. Just open it then run the setup file to install Office 2019 on your PC.

Activating Office 2019 using KMS license key

Method 1: Running commands one by one manually

Step 1.1: Open command prompt in administrator mode.First, you need to open command prompt with admin rights, then follow the instruction below step by step. Just copy/paste the commands and do not forget to hit Enter in order to execute them.

Open cmd as admin
Open cmd as admin

Step 1.2: Open location of the Office installed on your PC.

cd /d %ProgramFiles%Microsoft OfficeOffice16 cd /d %ProgramFiles(x86)%Microsoft OfficeOffice16

If you install your Office in the ProgramFiles folder, the path will be “%ProgramFiles%Microsoft OfficeOffice16” or “%ProgramFiles(x86)%Microsoft OfficeOffice16”. It depends on the architecture of the Windows OS you are using. If you are not sure of this issue, don’t worry, just run both of the commands above. One of them will be not executed and an error message will be printed on the screen.

Step 1.3: Convert your retail license to volume one.

for /f %x in (‘dir /b ..rootLicenses16ProPlus2019VL*.xrm-ms’) do cscript ospp.vbs /inslic:”..rootLicenses16%x”

If your Office is got from Microsoft, this step is required. On the contrary, if you install Office from a Volume ISO file, this is optional so just skip it if you want.

Step 1.4: Activate your Office using KMS client key.Make sure your PC is connected to the internet, then run the following command.

cscript ospp.vbs /setprt:1688 cscript ospp.vbs /unpkey:6MWKP >nul cscript ospp.vbs /inpkey:NMMKJ-6RK4F-KMJVX-8D9MJ-6MWKP cscript ospp.vbs /sethst:e8.us.to cscript ospp.vbs /act

If you see the error 0xC004F074, it means that your internet connection is unstable or the server is busy. Please make sure your device is online and try the command “act” again until you succeed.

Here is all the text you will get in the command prompt window.
