Default Acquire MS Office 2016 offline iso

So I have an actual legitimate business license key for Office
Professional Plus 2016 from an enterprise with volume licenses and I am
looking for an offline installer/iso/image or what have you so I can
install the software. Something I can physically put on my computer to
install Office 2016 and then use my legitimate key on it to activate.

If you buy any version of Microsoft Office nowadays you will know that
it does not come with a CD, it's simply a code with a link to download
off Microsoft's website except downloading off of Microsoft's website
requires using a Microsoft account to link to the key/product.

There seems to be no way to acquire the actual offline
installer/image/setup.exe or what have you without somehow linking to a
Microsoft account. Microsoft seems to be really going out of their way
to make sure everything they do/sell now is linked to a global
identifier (such as an account) or a subscription based thing. I did
some quick research on the topic and it seems even small/medium sized
businesses installing Office 2016 across multiple machines will face
this issue. Unless it's a large enough company where Office 2016 already
came installed on on the machine from the mass order of PC's from a
vendor like Dell which has access to the offline installer image; it's
not possible to install without creating a Microsoft account/linking to
one even if you have enterprise volume licenses/multiple use keys (what
Microsoft calls MAK keys, multiple activation key)

I actually want to use a legit key that I paid money for yet it almost
sounds that if I want privacy/no BS Microsoft account linking, the only
way to do it would be to pirate Office 2016 or at least use a pirated
offline .iso or installer and then use my legit key on it. Would that
even work or are those cracked iso's only for use with the supplied
keygens? Even if this could work I would hate to go this route seeing as
most of those files are typically loaded down with malware.


Is there any other way to acquire the offline installer for Office 2016
that does not require using/creating a Microsoft account?

If this site has legit SHA256 for some of these ISOs, then you
could verify a torrent when you've finished downloading it.

https://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...om-vlsc.65644/

To see all the posts on the site, you have to set up an account.
It wasn't always that way. I don't know if they got takedown
requests or what happened, to cause this policy. At one time,
you could read all the posts from the web without registering.

Are any of those Enterprise ?

The download tool should present these canned links
for Office 2016. And I wasn't able to see the word
Enterprise in here.

The OP says he has Pro Plus, and this link says it'll get that for him (sort
of):

https://www.heidoc.net/joomla/technology-science/microsoft/79-create-an-office-2013,-2016-and-365-offline-installer-with-the-office-deployment-tool

I haven't tried it out to verify that it works since I don't have a key for
any version of Office 2016, but I would think it's worth a try.

Default Acquire MS Office 2016 offline iso

Thanks a lot guys, I was skeptical of heidoc.net at first but after some
research the place turns out to be legit.

The following link there, allowed me to download an offline installer
for Office 2016 Professional Plus, simply one click install, enter your
valid key at the end and it's done. Using Office 2016 without a
Microsoft account, awesome.

https://www.heidoc.net/joomla/techno...download-links

It should be noted though that the installer is of Microsoft's
"click-to-run" variety and not a traditional msi installer. Finding a
legit msi offline install seems to be impossible.


Before using heidoc.net I did actually trying using the various cracked
versions of msi installer variety, see if I could install it that way
and then use my key on it. They straight up would not run at all. I have
a feeling Microsoft patches Windows 10 in such a way as to block cracked
versions of it's software from installing.
