Office 2019 VL Deployment

By | January 15, 2020

Installing 2019 Volume licenses can be a challenge. Here is the procedure.

    1. 2019 Requires Windows 10
    2. Build an XML file (see example)
    3. From CMD as admin Run to these:

setup /download Projectx64.xml
setup /configure Projectx64.xml
  • Future installations are done with just the configure switch.

XML Example

<Configuration>
  <Add SourcePath="\\server\Utilities\Deploy\Applications\Microsoft\2019Project" OfficeClientEdition="64" Channel="PerpetualVL2019">
   <Product ID="ProjectStd2019Volume" PIDKEY="nnnnn-nnnnn-nnnnn-nnnnn-nnnnn">
     <Language ID="en-us" />
   </Product>
  </Add>
<Updates Enabled="TRUE" Channel="Monthly" />
<Display Level="None" AcceptEULA="TRUE" />
<Property Name="AUTOACTIVATE" Value="1" />
</Configuration>
  • Save the above as Projectx64.xml
