If you have a VLK (volume license key) for office 2019, you may be aware that Microsoft no longer makes a .msi installer for you to easily install Office on a machine. If you follow this step by step guide, you can learn how to deploy Office 2019.

Deploy Office 2019

Deploy Office 2019

  1. First go to https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49117 and download the Office Deployment Tool
  2. Extract to folder – IE C:\Office
  3. Go to the folder where you extracted the Office Deployment Tool – There should be a setup.exe and some xml files
  4. I am installing Office Professional Plus 2019, so I deleted the Office 365 xml files
  5. Create the following xml and name it configuration.xml (I changed source path to folder with setup.exe and PIDKEY to my MAK key from volume licensing). Replace PIDKEY=”N07UR-1IC3N-C3K3Y-1MF40-13E71″ with your license key.
<Configuration>
  <Add 
       SourcePath="C:\Office"
	   OfficeClientEdition="64" 
	   Channel="PerpetualVL2019"
	   AllowCdnFallback="True">
      <Product ID="ProPlus2019Volume"  PIDKEY="N07UR-1IC3N-C3K3Y-1MF40-13E71" >
         <Language ID="en-us" />
      </Product>
      
  </Add>
  <RemoveMSI All="True" />
  <Display Level="Full" AcceptEULA="TRUE" />  
</Configuration>
  1. Run CMD as admin ( press start – type command prompt – right click and Run as administrator)
  2. Type the following (replace with folder you used in step 2)
cd c:/Office 
  1. Now type
setup.exe /download configuration.xml
  1. It will create a folder in the same directory and will be around 2GB in size, it may take a while, be patient.
  2. Once downloaded, type
 setup.exe /configure configuration.xml
  1. It may take a bit of time but this will deploy office 2019 with your VLK
