In this article, we will discuss the basics of MS Office KMS activation (this guide applies to the volume editions of Office 2021, 2019, and 2016, including Project and Visio). This takes place after you have to install and activate the KMS (Key Management Service) host on Windows Server 2022/2019/2016/2012 R2.
Note. This guide applies only for Microsoft Office 2021/2019/2016 under volume license excluding Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise (ex- Office 365 ProPlus). This MS Office version is subscription-based and can be activated online only.
You need to run the downloaded file (office2016volumelicensepack_4324-1002_en-us_x64.exe, office2019volumelicensepack_x64.exe, or Office2021VolumeLicensePack_x64.exe) as an administrator on your KMS server. The installer contains new KMS host license files. These license files allow your KMS host service to recognize KMS Host keys for Office, Project, and Visio. The activation files update script will be launched.
By default, volume licensed versions of Office 2021, 2019, and Office 2016 are preinstalled with the Generic Volume License Keys (GVLK). GVLKs allow the installed Office copy to automatically discover and activate Office on the KMS host by using a special VLSC record in DNS.
Meanwhile, after you installed the KMS host or created the ADBA object, the installed MS Office copy on the computer is activating automatically (as long as the computer has a GVLK installed, and the computer is joined to the Active Directory domain). Therefore, the GVLK key is not required usually (they are preinstalled in all Office 2021/2019/2016 volume license products).
I have worked on couple of office 365 proplus rollout projects. In all projects ,one of the critical task is to manage MSI based deployments for visio/project 2016 on computer that runs office 365 proplus (Click-to-Run).
Click-to-Run is the technology used to install Office 365 proplus subscription based .Windows Installer technology (MSI) was used to install the volume license editions of older versions of Office 2016 and older, such as Microsoft Office Professional Plus ,Microsoft Office Standard,visio and project.
Until now ( if you are not on office 365) ,we usually deploy volume licensed versions of Project 2016 and Visio 2016 by using the Windows Installer (MSI) installation technology. But that won't work if you're trying to install volume licensed versions of Project 2016 and Visio 2016 on the same computer that has Office 365 ProPlus. That's because Office 365 ProPlus uses Click-to-Run as its installation technology, and in this case, having MSI and Click-to-Run installations on the same computer isn't supported.
Example: If a computer has office 365 proplus ,then you cannot install any MSI version of 2016 on the same computer but you can install MSI version of 2013 and lower versions of visio/project,office et because they share different versions.
With the introduction of C2R ,MSI and its versions ,how do you deploy visio/project 2016 on computer that has office 365 proplus (C2R) installed and also get it activated using KMS/MAK volume license? 041b061a72
