    A new OfficeRTool version (2019/August/03) was released today

    - Added: Ability to disable install of "Microsoft TEAMS"
    - BugFix: Command line parameter -nrc is working correctly now
    - Changed: Download of setup files. OfficeRTool now downloads the same files as latest official MS-Office Deployment Tool.
    - Added: Latest ODT setup.exe (dated 2019 July 03).
    - Removed: Office 2019 channel-check at install. Office 2019 is available in all channels so this check is not needed anymore.

    No other changes were made, no new features were added.

    Download-links and checksums in OP were updated.

    Hi,

    New here. Apologies if I'm unwittingly breaking any of the rules. I Installed Office19ProPlus2019XC2RVL_MAKC2R edition using WOTOK. Now running word causes the prompt "Office Plus Pro 2019 Preview has expired". How would I go about MAK/Retail/MSDN activation? Is that even possible? I'm utterly confused. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    is there a new trick to have the local Office 365 features on my PC? (I am not talking about online feature, like more storage on OneDrive...).

    The last time when I asked it was about the New Ribbon. The trick was, to have the Office365 license on PC and to activate with Mondo 2016 license = activated Office with local 365 features.
    Now the New Ribbon is already part of Office 2019 and Office 365 has new features, like the small Ribbon in Outlook. I am already on Office Build 1907 and it is not working.

    The C2R-R2V was adjusted for that to keep the Office 365 license for the features and to have the additional activated mondo license.
    I collapse the "big Ribbon" and it's the old way to hide everything.

    So what did I do? I used OfficeScrubber to clean the Licenses. Then I "repaired" the Office to have Office 365 only license. I run "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office16\OSPPREARM.EXE" to get more trial time for Office 365.

    I started Outlook several times and success, I had the new features with the small Ribbon. As I know, some registry things are set for that.
    So I run C2R-R2V again to convert to VL version and activate with KMS_VL_ALL-32.

    This kept the new features for a short moment. After the third start of Outlook, the new functions was revert back and the Small Ribbon is gone :(

    Did someone already make some experience and have a tip?
    As far I know, this is done by registry informations. Even when my PC is Offline, the additional functions should stay on place. So what I think: What is necessary is to prevent the PC from changing this registry setting back to 'normal' features, or maybe to block that online connection which decide about feature level. But I am no expert.

    Do a full online office repair. Then Try using OfficeRTool to convert from retail to volume then kms activate. See if that makes a difference.

    Do you guess or do you know it and verified?
    What is a "full online office repair"? The installation will be the same. The license was "repaird" until I R2V and kms it and features was gone agin.
    I will try the way with OfficeRTool in an vmware and report back.

    EDIT: I have tested and it's not working. Installed as O365, started to get the Small Ribbon in Outlook. Changed to Mondo License, Activated, started 3 times and the new function are gone.
    Also OfficeRTool wipe the 365 license completly and only installs Mondo license.

    EDIT2: And I tried the same for abbodi1406 Scripts on a clean machine. O365 functions only stays until it will be converted to Mondo, the change are undo. Even that C2R-R2V_10 keeps the O365 license which is still in trial mode.

    OfficeRTool latest version bug??? I was downloading O365 x64, decided to manually expand the main window with my mouse to get a better look at the screen contents info during a download. The download status on each downloaded file goes a bit weird. I'll need to post a screenshot tonight.

    It's a glitch between 3rd-party download module "wget.exe" and windowed OfficeRTool.

    I'm not able to control wget output of the progress bar, hence I defined a corresponding
    window for OfficeRTool to mostly fit (output varies due to length of path- and filename).
    Now if you change window size, progress bar output is getting "weird". This goes on
    until the next file to download is shown. So I suggest to leave window size as is.

    But if you want to change window size: Edit lines #43, #103 and #488 in OfficeRTool.cmd.
    (And don't forget to tell your Antivirus that it was a intended change ;).)

    I just stumbled upon a potential answer to the problem you describe from the other office 2019 thread. And no, I have not personally tested out this guy's findings, but I may run a virtual install soon. I'm just now in the process of deciding if I'm going to bother "updating" from 2016. I've just skimmed the post, but I think the crucial solution comes from:
    • Exploiting the ability to install both retail (to add and keep 365 features) and volume licenses (KMS) in Office.
    • Also, keeping new features seems to require either injecting registry keys (offline) or allowing office to remain connected to the internet (not blocking MS office telemetry)
    • "If you install Office 365, then inject a volume license product key (such as Office Mondo’s), you’ll be able to KMS activate Office AND use the Office 365 features, because Microsoft will think you have Office 365 and install the appropriate registry configs! It won’t matter if your Office 365 grace period expires either."
    As of March 2019 (when the post was last updated), C2R-R2V will install the Office Mondo key while keeping the Office 365 grace key intact.
    I don't know if other solutions (YAOCTRI, or OfficeRTool) also have this ability -- perhaps the developers of these programs can confirm?
    If one of you guys has your virtual machine 'pipeline' ready to go, than you should be able to quickly see if this guys answers are still valid. It's a very detailed, but clearly written post. Please let us all know if this 'method' solves your problem! https://forums.mydigitallife.net/th...nstall-activation.62571/page-157#post-1505161

    Thanks for info.
    By following those steps looks like I did manage to keep Office 365 features active on a PC.
    Grace period set to 4 but office activated for 180 days.

    All working fine for me with O365 features are active.
    Start clean:
    01 OfficeRTool (Down and install O365)
    02 C2R-R2V (Convert it to Volume) keeps grace key intact.
    03 KMS_VL_ALL (Activate it)
    Make sure you are connected to internet, launch individual office apps, close and reopen it again, O365 features will pop up and stay.
