    Hello all,

    I'm setting up a new computer at my parent's and I need to install Office (2016, 2019, 365, it doesn't matter too much but they will need publisher).

    The activation process can be automatic or fully manual (provided there's a good howto) but once done, it has to work for years: what would you advise?

    Office 365 or 2019?
    A shady $10 licence key from eBay or a KMS emulator?

    That site only create configuration.xml to be used with Office Deployment Tool

    ODT has restrictions
    only Office 2019 Volume can be installed directly, but only on Windows 10, and only from Perpetual2019VL channel source

    I'm installing it on a Windows 10 Pro that I've just activated with KMS_VL
    I don't know why Perpetual2019VL channel source is an issue.


    Concretely, what should I do? Use KMS Tools do download/install applications?

    Because it's not available as ready .img, has to be downloaded with ODT

    KMS_VL_ALL should be good enough

    Well, I used some tool available on the forum to install the VL directly and activated it with KMS_VL_ALL. We'll see in 180 days :D
