    Hi guys,
    I understood that:
    • Office 2016 Professional => RETAIL only (source)
    • Office 2016 Professional Plus => VL only (source)
    Wikipedia confirms:

    Professional: This retail suite includes the core applications, as well as Outlook, Publisher and Access.[22]
    Professional Plus: This suite, only available through volume licensing channels, includes the core applications, as well as Outlook, Publisher, Access and Skype for Business.[24]
    Soooo.... how is it possible that I installed from it_office_professional_plus_2016_x86_x64_dvd_6968755 (SHA1: 40F27A74FF8457A7220A78D602DAC916A9CA40FE) and now I see a RETAIL PROFESSIONAL PLUS?

    ProPlus can be both: retail or volume

    The only KMS solution which can activate both is KMSpico, on other KMS solutions you have to convert to vl first.

    SW_DVD5_Office_Professional_Plus_2010w_SP1_64Bit_English_CORE_MLF_X17-76756.ISO = VL x64
    SW_DVD5_Office_Professional_Plus_2010w_SP1_W32_English_CORE_MLF_X17-76748.ISO = VL x86
    en_office_professional_plus_2016_x86_x64_dvd_6962141.iso = Retail x86/x64

    Thanks for your reply, I really appreciate it.

    I couldn't fact-check your statement. Could you please provide your source?

    OK, thanks! Still, I cannot understand why, if ProPlus retail exists, it's not show on Microsoft Store next to the other retail editions!

    Moreover: the Wikipedia entry is plain wrong, and there is now way to fix it since there isn't an official reference.

    You must always fact-check Enthousiast's statements, sometimes he makes things up to confuse n00bs

    I always try to fact-check EVERYTHING, especially when the statement seems to contradict every other info I found out there ;)

    In your reply in post #9 you used "File Identifier" by Inge.
    I can't seem to find it searching Google. Do you have a link please?

    Retail and Volume channels for ProPlus exist for 2010 and 2013 likewise, so it's nothing new :g:. The Click2Run versions of 2016 including ProPlus are meant to be Retail only but can be converted to Volume.

    If you're desperate for a reference, go to the Microsoft Home Use Program (microsofthup.com) and look at the FAQ. ProPlus retail has always been the version offered through HUP for home use.
