    Microsoft Office 2016 License Converter.
    Automated batch script to convert MS Office 2016 Licenses.​

    Especially good for those that want to be able to customize their installation but have a legit Retail key.​


    Instructions:
    • Run the batch file and choose one of the options.


    Important notes before starting:
    • This converter is only for MS Office 2016.
    • You need to run one of the installed MS programs, once, before converting to Retail, if not the programs will crash on launch.
    • To fix MS program crashing after conversion, run setup again and choose repair, then run once one of the programs, and THEN convert.
    • In order that the conversion should succeed, after the conversion you need to insert a Retail key before running any of the installed MS office programs.


    Includes:
    1. EZ-Convert = (removes license files, and installs chosen licenses)
    2. Check activation status = check activation status of the installed office products
    3. Check installed License = displays all installed office 16 licenses
    4. Remove license = Removes all installed licenses, also removes all installed keys.
    5. Install licenses = Installs chosen licenses.
    6. Insert product key = You need to insert it with hyphens. works both on retail and volume
    7. Activate online = Tries to activate your key online (volume/retail)
    8. Activate offline (via phone) - sub menus
      • Get installation ID = (volume/retail)
      • insert Confirmation ID = you need to insert the key without hyphens (volume/retail)
    9. Goto installed office folder = in order to run manually ospp.vbs


    Tested:MS Office 2016 ProPlus x64/32
    • Windows 7 SP1
    • Windows 8.1
    • Windows 10

    Wow! This is great.

    So to make sure I understand it correctly, I can install Office 2016 volume version, which I can customize components installed.
    Then activated it using my retail key (office 365)?

    @avi smile - Someone else posted your script mate. Maybe you should notify admin/mods to delete that thread as this is the authors thread?

    Edit: Done via report button.

    I've no idea. :confused:

    Visited the forum earlier today, clicked "New Posts" and saw the other thread for your script had been started. Obviously as you're the author this is the proper support thread.

    Here're all licenses by Ratiborus - http://rgho.st/6Fg2PZH6S

    Do you mind to explain a little bit more what you meant? (did you mean to ask to make also for visio and project?)
