Download and use Office 2016 for FREE without a product key

Posted by in Microsoft Software Products | Last updated on Sticky

Office 2016 is the latest version of the Microsoft Office productivity suite, succeeding Office 2013. New features of Office 16 include the ability to manage and work with files in Microsoft OneDrive from the lock screen, a powerful search tool for support and commands called “Tell me” and co-authoring mode with users connected to Office Online.

Download original Office 2016 ISO

You can get the latest version of Microsoft Office 2016 here if you don’t have it. Once your download is complete, you need to extract the original ISO image from the zip file. You will be left with a file named “SW_DVD5_Office_Professional_Plus_2016_W32_English…” (W32 here in the filename refers to the 32-bit version, if you download the 64-bit version, the filename will contain 64Bit instead). Although an ISO file is used to burn CD or DVD, you can install Office 2016 without burning it using 7-zip or similar archive software utility. Here is what you get after extracting the ISO file.


Installing Microsoft Office 2016

Simply run the setup file (named setup.exe) to install Office on your Windows.



Note: By default, Office will be installed in C:\Program Files.



Activate all versions of Office 2016 for FREE permanently

Supported products:

– Microsoft Office Standard 2016
– Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016

Step 1: Copy the following code into a new text document.

Create a new text document.


Step 2: Paste the code into the text file. Then save it as a batch file (named “1click.cmd”).


Step 3: Run the batch file as administrator.


Please wait…




Check the activation status again.

If you would have any questions or concerns, please leave your comments. I would be glad to explain in more details. Thank you so much for all your feedback and support!

  1. RAZU

    I am having some trouble with my Office 16 after following the procedures and activating my office. I would like to return to my normal state but uninstalling office doesn’t quite work. As soon i install again, the product keys are activated automatically because of the cmd file i ran following the procedure. please provide me the way to return to normal state and how to retract the effects of the 1click.cmd file once ran on my pc? TIA

  2. Napa'Katre Bras

    DONE after enabling Windows CScript Host in ( in only !):
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows Script Host\Settings
    Enable =1

    The batch file is in silent mode, thus don’t alert you about the Cscript status…

    Still a good job

  3. fahad

    thank you brother ,,, for help me and help all people …. thank you thank you …millions .. god bless you 🙂

  4. Bruno

    Thanks, I have office 365, it worked but now it says i have 5 days to activate the product, is there any lifetime version?

  5. Sean

    I think I got this working…There’s still the “sign in” in the top right. Is there an advantage to signing in? i.e syncing with your phone etc Any dangers? i.e lose activation


  6. Brijesh Kumar Singh

    I want to remove the batch file activator2016office.cmd
    Because I am unable to update the office 2016 since now when I installed the above batch file. I think it opposes to any update for office 2016. I tried to remove by uninstalling office 2016 completely but again same problem occurred. Even when I installed the office 2016 it is automatically activated without running the above batch file. Please help me to solve this issue.

  7. Mike

    your text file solution worked on my office 365 seems to work good, but when checking the account it still says needs activation, shall I worry about that.
    thank you

  8. William

    THANKYOU VERY MUCH! I HAD OFFICE 365 since last year but now it said Product activation failed. But then I try to run my old office. bat file which is expired but instructed to go here. And I found the new code for making bat. I paste it into notepad, change name into bat, then run as admin. WORKS GREAT! Thankyou!

  10. Joel Anthony

    I was wonderful. Thank you! You just saved me from several trial to activate!

  11. ibrahimc

  18. fernando

  19. Muriel

    Eu tinha feito isso e funcionou perfeitamente, mas ai essa semana apareceu uma mensagem que o office vai expirar dia 30/06 e preciso colocar a chave para continuar utilizando. Repeti o procedimento, mas continua dizendo que vai expirar e solicita a chave.

  25. Sreedhar

    Thanks a lot for the software. Seems Microsoft got your trick. After installation and activation of more than 3 months now it is saying Office 2016 not activated! :(((
    Please find below the error in the pic from below link.

    Please let us know if you find any more methods to overcome this.

    Thank you once again!

  26. Laura

    At first barely nothing worked.
    But you need to make sure to execute the file as an administrator.
    Now everythings works perfectly fine!

  27. Abe

    After displaying Activating your windows…,it display “The connection to my KMS server failed! Trying to connect to another one…”

  28. sid03

    This method no longer works. Firsly, it’s unable to connect to any of your KMS servers and secondly, it’s not compatible with the version of office16 installed from office deployment tool of microsoft.

    1. Frank

      I got the same error. It worked half a year ago. Now my office is deactivated and this method doesn’t work any longer.

  29. Fedox

    For me it doesn’t work :/
    It says that “product activation succesyfull”, but it doesn’t work

  30. Ranaa

    I was working last time i’ve used, but after formating my pc last month it’s not working.

    Pressione qualquer tecla para continuar. . .

    Alguém me ajuda?

  32. Italo

    In the first time that I use the .cmd, it worked very well. But, now my Office 2016 became unactivated again and the same .cmd isn’t effective as before. Is it a problem indeed?

      1. Nauman

        Same problem with me. It worked first time but now is not working and office 2016 products keep giving warning for reactivation.
        Please help.

  33. TS Hendricks

    Thank you so much, this works perfectly. I was seriously stuck but thanks to you I’m all sorted

  34. Himantha Perera

    Hello I tried to activate my Office Professional Plus 2016 with this method but it says your version is not supported. Please help me.

  36. Yellowkid

    First of all thanks. Several questions how does this work? How did you come about finding this? How much time did this take you????

    Once again thanks.


    The world needs many brainy people like you. Let me know if you want to visit Switzerland. I can offer you a place for 3 days.

  38. Kris

    Oh God, you’re so help us, dude!!

  39. Milind

    I just wanted to know that for what period does this product keys work, if we use either the 1click.bat file or kms activator. Is they work for 3 months or 1 year or lifetime???????

  40. Luis

    I tried many times running the 1Click.cmd and other commands that I got from the comments, and it didn’t work.
    But I copied the very last version of the code from the GitHub link, and it worked well. In fact, note that at the end of the scripts says:

    Would you like to visit my blog [Y,N]? Y
    Press any key to continue . . .

    This solution is awesome. Thank you so much!

  41. Ade Mugni Rusmana

    It does’nt work on my office prof 2016 (64bit).
    Is just because I was crack it (But only office words is activated by that crack) ?
    Shoul I do reinstall my office for follow this steps ?

    “Sorry if my english weird”

  42. Airton Holanda

    I’m Brazilian, I spent a lot of time looking for videos about the activation until I found a commentary on one of the videos about his technique and here I am, immensely grateful for his work!

  43. Marc

    First of all, sorry for my English, I know it’s bad. On the second hand, thank you for your help.
    I installed the Office version that I downloaded from your own links, and I checked the SHA-1 hash of ISO file by following the steps you indicate in your post. However, when trying to activate Office as described below it apears 3 times the following message: “The connection to my KMS server failed! Trying to connect to another one…
    Please wait…” Then, finally it apears this other one: “Sorry! Your version is not supported.
    Please try installing the latest version here:”.

    How can it be? This is a link to the same page and tutorial where I downloaded my version from. I can’t understand.

    If there is a solution to this case, I would apreciate your help. Thank you very much anyway.

  47. Ali

    Please do the following steps:
    Step 1. Run command prompt as administrator.
    Step 2. Copy and run the command:

    cd %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office16&cscript //nologo ospp.vbs / >nul&cscript //nologo ospp.vbs /act
    If you see error, try this command:

    cd %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft Office\Office16&cscript //nologo ospp.vbs / >nul&cscript //nologo ospp.vbs /act
    Then check activation status again.

    just wanted to check/confirm if updates would be available for this activation n whether its actually activated permanently.

  50. nai

    Does this work with the latest version of Office? This worked perfectly before, but recently a pop up appears telling me to activate within a day. When I retried the 1click.cmd, I was told it was unable to connect to any of the servers. Will you be updating any time soon?

    1. Vansh Narula

      i experienced the same problem but was able to solve it. Just visit this site again which is earlier mentioned in the video given above:
      Copy that and save it as a new batch file.
      Run it as administrator.
      Just do not forget to run it as administrator. It would not work without it.

  51. boo

    Works for me. Thank you so much! I downloaded the MS office in this website and follow the instructions to activate it. Works fairly well. Again, thank you!

    1. Vansh Narula

      Make sure you copied the whole text file. I recommend u to copy it from here instead:
      And also dont forget to save it on the desktop and especially run it as administrator without this it may not work.

    1. Yasmmm

      YOO, this isnt working for me. After running the 1click.cmd it says that the version of office i have isn’t suitable and to follow a certain link to download the latest office , after doing this – it still didn’t work. any help , im running windows 10

      1. Vansh Narula

  52. Lorre

    Hey i did everything as you described but when i try to run the setup, this error pops up:

    Setup can’t find or validate an installation file. Please try reinstalling Office from your installation source, or if you installed from a downloaded package, please re-download and reinstall. If you continue to have problems, please contact Microsoft of your administrator.

  53. M.G

    it is working?

    My activation issue is solved.

    1. gabriel

      eres el puto amo, realmente me funciono. soy un programador con poca experiencia pero realmente quiero aprender lo que tu haces. quisiera saber como aprendiste esto para poder hacerlo yo , es decir se que es necesario saber de xml y sobre cmd pero se que algo se me escapa, ¿como supiste que archivo xml editar?
      ¿y como sabias que archivo vbs tenias que abrir?, realmente estoy impresionado me encanta la programacion pero este tipo de cosas escapan a mi entendimiento

    1. winz

  59. George

    Thank you so much! It worked 100% for me. My activation expired and I couldn’t continue with my thesis, until I found this tutorial. You saved me!

  60. Shahira

    I have followed your instruction for activate Microsoft Office 2016 step by step. it gave me at the end that (Product activation successful) but when I opened Microsoft Word, or Excel, or any Office program, it gave me the message (your subscription has expired, it asks me again for activation. I restarted my laptop, but the same happen.

    1. Mihai

  61. Ben Swolo

    Hey MSGuides,
    I am not a native English speaker, that’s why I would like to download a language pack. But when I try installing it, it isn’t working.
    Can you provide the language packs too?
    Apart from this small problem, it’s working perfectly fine 😀

  62. Abhishek

    I have done the same thing which you said to do but it is still showing me that “your subscription has expired”.
    What to do now?

    1. Rahul Karmakar

      It shows the same for me. Maybe the latest Office 365 update did such thing. Any other way to activate it would be much appreciated.

  63. Andrew G. Krah

    Thanks a million for your education materials on the web educating us who need them the most to help us perform our IT duties from our various work places. I just the windows10.cmd file and my windows 10 got activated instantly. GOD BLESS……
