Microsoft Office is an essential program for every computer user. However, this tool can’t work properly without activation. In today’s article, we will tell you more about the activator applications and its features of this operating system, especially the Office 2016 activator. Also, you will be given guiding tips on how to use it on different Office versions. Let’s scroll down to read!
Microsoft Office 2016 Activator – Guiding Tips
We will explain to you about the Office 2016 activator, its features, and tips for effective use in the first part. Details as below:
What Is A Microsoft Office Activator?
Office Activator is the tool that can activate the Microsoft suite so that users can use all the functions of this operating system. Still, there are two ways of activating Microsoft Office:
- Using KMS application
- Using the active directory domain
Among the two methods, KMS is considered one of the safest and fastest applications for activators. Most users prefer this program, as it can work without an internet connection. Especially for Office 2016, KMS provides the full function with related programs like Project, Visio, etc. You will be impressed by this application as it runs the work automatically, and all you need to do is wait for the process to launch and get accomplished. The new files set up won’t collide with activated files.
Furthermore, the activator application provides many positive features that we highly recommend Office users to use:
- Genuine activation: After accomplishing the activation process, users will receive a license. Interestingly, you can’t differentiate between this license and the one you bought or the one you unlocked by key. And there won’t be any technical hole for Microsoft to track this program on your computer.
- Unlimited activation: Some programs can be activated for a certain amount of time for business purposes, such as 30 days or 90 days. However, with this program, you don’t have to worry as you could activate the Office unlimitedly! The activation period also exists without expiration.
- Without detection: As mentioned above, there is no way for Microsoft to detect the activator you are using. Even though Microsoft starts to detect something is going wrong with your application, the activator can still run normally due to its frequent updating. Thus, you can just relax with this tool!
- One-click activation: You might not believe in this fact, but you only need less than a minute to activate the application. All you need to do is a click, and it will automatically run the whole process from the beginning to the end. We would say that it is a beneficial feature for people who are not so good at dealing with technology.
- Highly safe: There are no viruses or malware programs that get along with KMS activators. Therefore, it is safe for all Microsoft users.
- 100% free: You don’t have to pay anything for most activators, and it is the same with a KMS activator.
- 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows are supported: Indeed, there is no difference between Windows 32 and 64-bit operating systems. We even applied the activator on Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, and Windows XP operating systems. And all worked pretty well!
Office Activator Using Tips
Although having many positive aspects, there are few drawbacks that you need to pay more attention to. The below tips will guide you to use this activator better:
- Choose your language: KMS activator does support users with its wide range of languages. We suggest you choose your mother language or the language that you feel comfortable with the most for work for the best use.
- Backup and save the old files by yourself: KMS doesn’t help back up your old files every time it gets updated. Therefore, if you want to maintain the old files, you must save them by yourself! It is also a must to create a folder for files that need to back up periodically.
- Disable the antivirus program before installing: The antivirus programs can detect your activator as harmful and prevent it from setting up. Hence, remember to disable all the antivirus applications before you start the process.
- Activate Windows again after installing or upgrading: This is a must when reinstalling your Windows or upgrading it, as it is likely a new version. Besides, your activator also updates its hole to avoid being detected by new operating systems when you activate your Windows again. Reactivate Windows also helps merge the different data within the schemes between the activator and the computer.
MS Office 2019/2016 Activation with KMS
In this second part of the article, let’s go further with KMS activators and how it works on the Office 2019/2016 program. Each version has its features and requirements.
KMS Activator Office 2016
KMS is a Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016 activator. One of its features for Office 2016 is assisting Windows 7 SP1 Microsoft Office 2016 KMS while getting along with KB2757817 and Windows Server 2008 R2 with the KB2757817. Below are detailed instructions on how to activate Office 2016. Let’s kick right in!
Step 1: Figure out and type down the host key of Office 2016 in the place for volume licensing service.
Write down the host main of Office 2016
Step 2: You have to download the pack of volume licenses for your Microsoft Office version, then set it up on the place for the KMS host server.
The pack of volume licenses is known as an executable file that conducts all the required license files like Visio and Project on the KMS server to activate specific Office versions. Therefore, choose the suitable pack volume license to use based on the Office version you got. You need to satisfy two factors to activate your Office version: a suitable pack of volume licenses and the newly updated KMS host key.
Step 3: Launch the downloaded file! The run script will be exposed as below:

Step 4: At this step, you will get two options to choose from, either using the active directory or KMS hosts. Choose the KMS host option to start the KMS activating process. Firstly, select the Key Management service! Next, enter your fully qualified domain name. Install the KMS main key by using the command: slmgr -ipk <Office-2019-KMS-Host-Key>) after that.
Installing your KMS host key
Users can activate their Office 2016 either via phone or by doing it online. Although the activation process doesn’t require an internet connection, you still have to provide direct internet at the specific stage of the installation. If you are using a phone for the activation, use the order statement: slui.exe 4.
Using volume activation tools
Step 5: A KMS configuration will occur after activating the KMS server. The name must appear with the name of the Office version and the licensed status. Hence, what you have to do now is close the tools and restart the Software Protection Service.
A new configuration will appear on your desktop screen
You will see the default TCP port 1688 for the KMS activation license. Subsequently, launch the firewall rule for clients intruding on the KMS server using an order statement: Enable-NetFirewallRule -Name SPPSVC-In-TCP.
You may get the KMS server in the current active directory domain as well by applying using the second order-statement: nslookup -type=srv _vlmcs._tcp.
Using nslookup order statement to find KMS server
Then, setting up the console by pressing the Enter keyboard in the Volume license pack. Finally, you can now test the KMS server connection using PowerShell with the following order statement: Test-NetConnection your-kms-server-name –Port 1688. If the response is “True,” it means you can use this KMS server.
KMS Activator Office 2019
Activating Microsoft Office 2019 is the same as the 2016 version, although their requirements are different. In detail, to activate Office 2019, you need to use Windows Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016, or Windows Server 2019 operating systems.
You have to choose the version of Office to update right at the first step. In this part, we will instruct you on how to activate Office 2019 using the Office Client Software License Management Tool.
Firstly, run the order statement: CD “c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office19” (or run: CD “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office19” ). Next, you also have to specify the server name: cscript ospp.vbs /sethst:kms01.yourdomain.com. Then, use the order statement: cscript ospp.vbs /setprt:1688. Now unlock your Office copy on the KMS server by using the command: cscript ospp.vbs /act. Finally, check for the current status of the activating process by using the statement: cscript ospp.vbs /dstatusall.
Running the commands in administrator for Office activating.
Be mindful that it will require a certain number of requests (at least five requests) for the last 30 days if your devices are set up on a KMS server. We call this activation threshold. If your device can’t get enough requests, an issue will occur, and it will ask you to contact your administrator for being insufficient.
With this method, the activation time is 180 days, and the reactivation time is seven days. If you don’t reactivate the Office, it will automatically set back to 180 days. During this time, your Office version will automatically turn to a 30 days evaluable regime if your computer couldn’t connect to the server of KMS.
If you want to track the activating history on the client, you can use the order statement: cscript ospp.vbs /dhistorykms . However, to control and conduct the Office activation process with the current user credentials number on the remote computers, follow another order statement: cscript ospp.vbs /act remotepc2.
In case you are confronting the error number 0xC004F074 during the activating process, there is nothing much you can do. In fact, IT experts also haven’t figured out the solution for this error yet. The only thing you could do here is recreating the KMS on the Windows server, especially for version 2012 R2, or make a separate KMS for your Office version.
The Bottom Line!
In conclusion, our article aims to give you an overview of the Office 2016 activator and tips to use it properly. Through this article, we also hope you’ve got to know more about how important the KMS activator is to the different versions of the Microsoft Office operating system. With this application, any user can activate your computer by yourself.
