How to install Office 2019 -
Office 2019 is only compatible with Windows 10 and it is very unfriendly when it comes to the installation -
You must use the Microsoft Office Deployment Tool to download and install Office 2019 -
Go to the folder where you extracted the Office Deployment Tool - There should be a setup.exe and some xml's
Since I am installing Office Standard 2019 I deleted the office 365 xml's.
I created the following xml and named it configuration.xml (I changed source path to folder with setup.exe and PIDKEY to my MAK key from volume licensing)
<Product ID="Standard2019Volume" PIDKEY="#####-#####-#####-#####-#####" >
<Language ID="en-us" />
<RemoveMSI All="True" />
<Display Level="Full" AcceptEULA="TRUE" />
Open up cmd as admin and change directories to the folder with the setup.exe
Run setup.exe /download configuration.xml it created a folder in the same directory with about 2gigs of data
Once done run setup.exe /configure configuration.xml
Office 2019 X64 Installation requires that all 32 bit versions of Office be removed. Then hitting the windows button and typing "features" will show the "turn windows features on or off" which is where you can install the needed components below:
Turn on the ".net framework 4.7 advanced services --> asp.net 4.7" and "internet information services --> web management tools --> management scripts and tools/ContextualSpelling management service" and then you may install.
