Office 2019 Download and Installation Has Changed

Description:
Office Standard is an integrated collection of programmes and services designed to work together to enable optimised information work.

This donation provides one license for installing the software on a single device. Request one license for each device on which you will install it. See a summary of Volume Licensing Product Use Rights for specific licensing details.

Which Versions of This Software Are Available?
You can choose to download the current version or the previous version of this software. You can find out which version is the current one in the Microsoft Title Groups document. In addition, you can download the software in any language that's available.

You can use the applications in the Office suite to

  • Create, share, and edit documents with colleagues in other locations
  • Track and highlight data trends
  • Broadcast documents and live presentations for an audience via their web browsers
  • Consolidate communications services to reduce costs

Applications in This Suite
The Standard suite includes the following applications:

Major Capabilities

  • Ribbon: The Office ribbon enhances usability by bringing together the most popular formatting and creation tools in a single, unified design.
  • Web and mobile access: With Office Online and free apps for mobile devices, users at separate locations can co-author or edit the same file at the same time. They can use any web browser or mobile device running Windows, iOS, or Android.
  • Cloud storage: Office applications integrate with OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, and SharePoint, so you can access your files across devices.
  • Multiple file format support: Most Office applications, including Word and Excel, can save or export files as PDF or XPS documents natively, without requiring you to download and install add-ons.

Important Volume Licensing Information
With Office suites and applications, you can choose between two types of volume license keys for product activation: a Key Management Service (KMS) license key or a Multiple Activation Key (MAK). You will be provided with both types of keys on the Microsoft Volume Licensing website.

Microsoft offers instructions on how to use a MAK or KMS key to activate volume editions of Office software.

Obtaining This Product
Installing this product requires you to download the software from the Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC) and enter a license key. You can download any available version or language for your product.

The license key allows you to install the product on as many computers as you have received licenses for. This quantity is specified in the email you receive from TechSoup South Africa after you request this product.

Expect two emails:

  1. When your donation request has been approved, TechSoup South Africa will send a message to your organisation email address. This email will confirm the number of licenses you have requested and provide information about how to use the VLSC once Microsoft accepts your license agreement. Make sure the organisation email that is registered with TechSoup South Africa is up-to-date. Visit My Member Profile and verify the address in your active organisation profile.
  2. Microsoft will send an email welcoming your organisation to the VLSC. This email will indicate that Microsoft has accepted your license agreement. After you receive this email, you'll be able to follow the steps in the first email you received from TechSoup South Africa to obtain your donation through the VLSC.

Software Assurance
Under the Software Assurance programme, you have the right to install any new release of products covered in the agreement during the term of your coverage.

Requirements: 
  • See Office system requirements.
  • Microsoft installation technologies:
    • Office applications that are version 2019 or later must be installed using Microsoft Click-to-Run technology instead of the traditional Windows Installer (MSI) technology. Click-to-Run technology is the same technology that is used to install the Office applications that are included with Office 365 subscriptions.
    • You can't install multiple Office products on a computer if the products are the same version but use different installation technologies. In some cases, you also can't install two different versions of Click-to-Run applications on the same computer. For more information, see Microsoft Office support.
