Download and use Office 2016 for FREE without a product key

Posted by in Microsoft Software Products | Last updated on


Office 2016 is the latest version of the Microsoft Office productivity suite, succeeding Office 2013. New features of Office 16 include the ability to manage and work with files in Microsoft OneDrive from the lock screen, a powerful search tool for support and commands called “Tell me” and co-authoring mode with users connected to Office Online.

Download original Office 2016 ISO

You can get the latest version of Microsoft Office 2016 here if you don’t have it. Once your download is complete, you need to extract the original ISO image from the zip file. You will be left with a file named “SW_DVD5_Office_Professional_Plus_2016_W32_English…” (W32 here in the filename refers to the 32-bit version, if you download the 64-bit version, the filename will contain 64Bit instead). Although an ISO file is used to burn CD/DVD or a USB drive, you can install Office 2016 without burning it using 7-zip or similar archive software utility. Here is what you get after extracting the ISO file.

here are all the files you will get after extracting Office iso image

Installing Microsoft Office 2016

Simply run the setup file (named setup.exe) to install Office on your Windows.
run the installation file then click continue button

click "install now" button

 

Note: By default, Office will be installed in C:\Program Files.
the installation progress has been started

 

Done!
your office 2016 was installed successfully

Activate all versions of Office 2016 for FREE permanently

1. Using KMS client key to activate your Office manually

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.

Step 1: Find the Office location in your Windows and move to there.

cd /d %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office16
cd /d %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft Office\Office16

If you install your Office in the ProgramFiles folder, the path will be “%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office16” or “%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft Office\Office16”. 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 2: If you are using Office retail version, convert it to volume one.

for /f %x in ('dir /b ..\root\Licenses16\proplusvl_kms*.xrm-ms') do cscript ospp.vbs /inslic:"..\root\Licenses16\%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 3: Install Office client key and activate your Office.

Make sure your PC is connected to the internet, then run the following command.

cscript ospp.vbs /inpkey:XQNVK-8JYDB-WJ9W3-YJ8YR-WFG99
cscript ospp.vbs /unpkey:BTDRB >nul
cscript ospp.vbs /unpkey:KHGM9 >nul
cscript ospp.vbs /unpkey:CPQVG >nul
cscript ospp.vbs /sethst:kms8.msguides.com
cscript ospp.vbs /setprt:1688
cscript ospp.vbs /act

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

C:\Windows\system32>cd /d %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office16

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office16>cd /d %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft Office\Office16
The system cannot find the path specified.

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office16>for /f %x in ('dir /b ..\root\Licenses16\proplusvl_kms*.xrm-ms') do cscript ospp.vbs /inslic:"..\root\Licenses16\%x"

    I have tried this a number of times – each time it comes up and says “Sorry! Your version is not supported”

    I have Office 2016 Professional Plus – a version I got from the internet. Why is this not activating as per your code?

    Thanks

      KMS activation method only work with one copy of office program in the same PC.

      Control Panel, just keep one already activate Office program, then uninstall the other find.

    Hi

    The activation for office 2016 doesn’t work. It says activation is succesful but when I try to use the product it says Error code:0x4004F00C and it is not activated. can you help?

      The Error Code 0x4004f00c is mainly caused due to the issues like corrupted Windows system. Scan your windows system for error, solve it. Then retry activation of Office 2016 with admin right online.

      Here all methods just activate your windows or office Program for free.

      Won’t touch any part of all your Data, software installed etc.

      Fill free to use it. Spare money to donate is welcome.

      Enjoy.

      Control Panel, check have you got more than a copy of Office program in your PC. If yes, uninstall all you not using anymore.

          To begin the scan, right-click on the Drive which you wish to check and select Properties. Next, click on Tools tab and under Error-checking, click on the Check button. This option will check the drive for file system errors. If the system detects that there are errors, you will be asked to check the disk
