Installing Office 2019 – with MAK Key

Here are a few steps required to install Office 2019 with MAK license of Office.

  1. Download and run the Office Deployment Tool
  2. It will create the configuration.xml (See example below for edits you will need to do).
  3. Open a Admin privileged command prompt and navigate to the location of the setup.exe and configuration.xml files (Both files should be in the same directory created by the Office Deployment Tool). Run the following command:
    setup.exe /download configuration.xml
  4. once done run  setup.exe /configure configuration.xml
  5. You should then see the Office 2019 setup window open and start installing.

For reference, the Office Deployment Tool created the following Configuration.xml file for my install.
