Office Home and Business 2019 is a lifetime Office version that is installable using a product key on a single PC or Mac. It will bind to a Microsoft account for future reinstallations even to a completely different device as long as only 1 active installation exists. In case of reinstallations, all you need to do is to sign in using the Microsoft account where you bound it to. This will also activate Office automatically. Businesses prefer this type of Office installation as the license is valid for commercial use. Many people also prefer this traditional non subscription based lifetime Office.
If you have bought multiple product keys, you can bind them on either a single or multiple Microsoft accounts for life. You will have an option on your Account page as shown below at https://account.microsoft.com/services to choose which product to install on the current PC. In our example below, we have 3 product keys across 2 different types of Office inserted into a single Microsoft account that we can use to activate 3 installations of Microsoft Office. We can uninstall then reinstall and reactivate these 3 licenses unlimited number of times even on a totally different device as long as only 1 active installation per license key exists.
If you have already installed Office Professional Plus 2019 and you are certain it is a genuine copy, all you need to do is to enter the 25 digit product key to activate your office. Simply follow the steps from step number 10.
If you own previous releases of Microsoft Office below the 2019 version, it is of utmost importance that you remove them first before installing Office Professional Plus 2019 to prevent application errors. Microsoft Office is designed in a way that it only allows one installation and once license to exist in a single device. Pirated Office should also be thoroughly removed to ensure that the new installation can connect to Microsoft’s activation servers for activation.
