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.

Activate all versions of Office 2016 for FREE permanently

1. Using KMS client key to activate your Office manually

Time needed: 1 minute.

Activate your Office 2016 via command line using legal product key.
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.

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

    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.

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

  2. Convert your Office to volume version if you are using retail one.

    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.

    for /f %x in ('dir /b ..\root\Licenses16\proplusvl_kms*.xrm-ms') do cscript ospp.vbs /inslic:"..\root\Licenses16\%x"

  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.

    would it be possible to combine both the Plus file and the project & visio together so that if you have the FULL suite you can use this code and not have to do it in parts?
