    I've installed the fonts on my Win10 this way:
    - Open Settings.
    - Click on Personalization.
    - Click on Fonts.

    Select, drag, and drop all the font files into the "Add fonts" box to install them.
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    I realize the questions I am about to ask seem to anger longtime Windows Power users but bear with me and be kind, please.
    If you install the Windows 10 Pro Arm preview on and New Mac Mini M1 (Arm processor) using Parallels with native Arm support for this venture, Is there some reason that the latest version of OfficeRTool will not open? I know it is command-line-based,
    but, is it that the ARM version of Windows 10 will not properly run this type of command-line application[officeRtool]? I intended to install Office 2019 for testing using this tool, but that was a no-go, and then I tested KMS_VL_All 41r (just to see if the activation status app would work) and this seem to run as admin. ORT does not open period, I could go back to my Office2016 ProPlus MSI and install but I am gun-shy that 41r will not do its job even if the 2016 is a Volume Lic, as ORT cannot convert a retail copy if it will not open. Can anyone give me some direction as to what will and won't work
    on Windows 10 ARM? I could go back to the old AutoKMS method but I am not sure that will work as well and now That Win Defender flags it even if an exception is created so that is not a really compelling option

    OfficeRTool will need an update to be compatible with ARM64 Windows 10.
    However, the latest KMS_VL_ALL and C2R-Retail2Volume scripts are fully compatible with ARM64 Windows 10. Let us know if you see any issue with them. BTW I didn't get what you mean by ORT.

    Also, you can use YAOCTRU to download the latest Office C2R files and YAOCTRI to install them. Both should work fine on ARM64 Windows 10.

    Thanks ... ORT "Office R Tool" YCU it will be.. "YAOCTRU". I would also assume MAS 1.4 will not work for an insider preview, especially an ARM version.

    Thanks for the report. Seems like MS extended the detection of non-official Volume installation of the Office, the banner is also new. Office 2019 on the 'PerpetualVL2019' update channel should still be a way to not get those banners. Updated the info here https://forums.mydigitallife.net/posts/1653090/

    Have you activated it with the latest version of KMS_VL_ALL? Try with office 2019 on PerpetualVL2019 and let us know if you see the banner.

    I think Office also checks for the existence of a KMS server name in the registry. Older versions of KMS_VL_ALL didn't add this in the registry.

    Office 2021 with PerpetualVL2019 is not working! Any solution for 2021?

    The equivalent update channel for Office 2021 is "PerpetualVL2021". Try with it.

    You could remove the tokens.dat only and restart office to see if it has effect. If it does not work:
    - Try uninstalling "scrubbing" Office. I think the latest from Microsoft site is "SetupProd_OffScrub.exe"
    - With Office closed, navigated to "C:\Windows\System32\spp\store\2.0\tokens.dat" and rename "tokens.dat" to "tokens.dat.old" if it is still there.
    - Install Office again
    - Convert Retail to VL
    - Activate

    and to get rid of "Get Genuine Office"
    - Open Word and navigate to File --> options --> Privacy Settings
    - Under All Connected Experiences, uncheck Enable Connected Experience and restart Office.

    P.S. "OLicenseCleanup.vbs" a license cleaner that can also be downloaded from Microsoft web site.

    @BartHD Please confirm it.
    Please share output of Check-Activation-Status-vbs.cmd (from KMS_VL_ALL)

    Try to install the generic MAK key, maybe it will work :)
    (and uninstall VL_KMS license)
    (VL_KMS and VL_MAK expired 18. 1. 2022, MAK is better key)
