    Hey, I recently downgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 7 because I always preferred it and I don't see the need to use Windows 8/10 when Windows 7 works perfectly fine for my need.

    Now, I have tried understanding the whole Office 2019 installation, and it's not as simple as mounting an ISO file like it was years ago.

    I tried using the different tools provided in the Office 2019 thread in the Microsoft Office forum, but I can't seem to get ANY of the tools to work. There are either Errors or they just won't work. Is this because non of them work for Windows 7 and I need an older version of Office? Please guide me in the right direction.

    I am sorry if I posted this in the wrong section, please move it if I did.

    Thank you for reading.

    YAOCTRU for download the latest office 2019 build
    YAOCTRI for setting it up (with updates enabled)
    KMS_VL_ALL for activation.

    I did not think someone could install Office 2019 on a Windows 7 pc? As far as I knew, you can only get Office 2019 on a Windows 10

    You can always install it, but for office to be able to receive updates, you need a tool like YAOCTRI, it contains the workaround for this.
