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

Activating Office 2019 using KMS license key

Step 1: Copy the following code into a new text document.

    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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. Ahmad Amr Moemen

    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.

  6. 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!

  7. Isaac

    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

  8. 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

  9. 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…

  10. mark

    i have the office 2016 and i am using ur previous code , it doesnt say anything and say no need for activation but it doesnt say licence activated , hopefully u could reply and thanks it actually works i just wanted to inquire

  11. George

    It worked perfect for me on 2 computers.
    When I tried to install this on third computer it says connection to Kms server failed three times and then it says wrong version of office.

    Something is not working for me here…?

  12. Đức

    dạ sau khi em cài file cmd thì chạy thử dược nhưng khi vào office thì bên dưới bảng kích hoạt ko hiện gì có nghĩa là sao ạ

  13. Trieste Tan

    Hi, the script initially failed to work because some characters used were not in the right encoding. I don’t know what is the correct encoding to use, so I switched everything to ANSI. Then the script worked. Thank you!

  14. Tadej

    i did it everything the same as here, but when i go to word there is licence key needed, its not activated product as here

    1. Pukar Khatri

      It works.
      You just have to run the office2019.cmd with administrator granted.
      I was doing it wrong to but it works now.

  15. Cabir

    Thank you so much….. Can we have the same for some other software… please ? (I need it for Dreamwaver and some of audio, video editing softwares)


  16. Chet V..

    Didn’t work for me, and I tried it several times, including different Office Downloads. Gave up after hours or trying.

  17. Allison

    It said “Product Activation successful” in the batch file. However, the product information in office is still unlicensed. I have restarted my pc and done the procedure a few times but it still unlicensed. Help!

  18. Frits

    is no longer available. (for the activation of Office 2019) Are you able to send me an other link?

    Appreciate your reply.

    Kind regards,


  19. Major

    I install Office 2019 successfully. But Can’t activate Project 2019 & Visio 2019. Please let me now how to activate these.

  20. John DOE

    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

  21. Primal

    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.

  22. jiovanni

    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.

  23. dskushwaha

    It really worked. First time I tried it didn’t worked. Don’t know what were the reasons. After the expiry of 7 days of Office 2019. I tried again to activate and it worked.

  24. Dream

    wow! It really works! I honestly had doubts at first but voila! It really works! thank you so much may you continue to help us non-techie people to enlightenment LoL:-) But seriously thank you so much! Kudos!

  25. Prabin

    Thought it was too good to be true. Don’t trust sketchy license files you find online I guess…

    1. Asher S Schwartz

      worked for me…I had other ones fail on my mac with a virtual machine on and this one helped me out. Did you try running it as an administrator?

  31. Neophyte Nitol

    After being failed by other activators…….I am now successful with your activator man……….thank you a lot and lots of gratitude 🙂

  32. Ryan

    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,

  33. ducsue

    I have office 2016 installed and used the cmd file to activate Office. Upon completion under about page, it says Office 2019 is activated. I am still on Office 2016 correct?

    1. Matt

      Works fine if i install it on a machine that i havn’t put 2016 on in the past, I got 2016 from this site too.
      Have also removed all traces of 2016 from registry / explorer using revo..

  34. Andres

    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,

  35. JR

    It says my version is not supported.

    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?

  36. Vaishali

    I did everything as the screenshots said.. but the option of running the file as administrator is not showing ! What do i do.?

  37. FeFoo

    A question please: do i need to turn off the auto update inside office account??

    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.

  38. Muthanna Al-Ezzi

    Than you very much
    It works perfectly.
    I would like to ask if there as a same way to activate kaspersky total security 2018? I mean a same as activation Office 2019?
    Thanks again

  39. Harold

    Works as of 11/13/18! MS Office 2019

    Just completely follow the instructions, there’s also a link in the site to get the ISO of MS Office 2019.

  40. Ayodeji OJO

    Thanks, It worked. I installed office 2019 but says 2016, after reinstalling for 5 times. I am fortunate to stumble on this site of yours. I just did as instructed and it worked asap. Thanks so much.

  41. Amanda

    Verified to be working 13/11/2018
    Did exactly as the screenshot depicts server connection fails on first try then succeeds on second!
    Thanks so much 🙂

  42. bevf

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

  43. Katrina

    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.

    Though I had to run that office.cmd file a few times but the job s done. MSOffice 2019 activated. Thanks Mr. Guang. I Salute the Genius.

  51. utsav911

    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

  52. Joan

    I had to execute the cmd file twice but it worked. I really apreciate it. Using KMSPico was something quite worrying.

    Hi, in my computer showing

    I tried two times but not Activating Office 2019. Please inform me how to remove 2016 and active 2019.

    1. Rahul Salin

      Just sign out from the outlook/live account in Office and then exit. Now re-open it again. You should see only 2019 now.

  54. Chris

    Hi Guang ! Many thanks, it works fine ! A quick question : is it possible to have the same behaviour for Visio 2019 please? Thanks 🙂

  55. name

    and it is looks don’t follow the tip that = activate 7 days free…

    just install and don’t touch the office
    and just run in administrator the bat file…

    i found this another site…

  56. mario

    I cant change the language in Exel. I set it to german but after a restart its still in English. Is there a way to change that?

    1. Anonymous

      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.

  57. Jem De

    When I download the 2019 retail version and install it (after doing the office uninstall) it for some reason installs office 365. I’ve done this serveral times now and the same thing keeps happening. any idea what might be going wrong?
