  1. Humm... thanks for the new link. From the screenshot, you will be installing a 64 bit version which is not recommended by Microsoft as it will cause problems with plugins, please consider change it to 32 bit even your are on 64 bit OS.

    The code:

    setup.exe /configure configuration-Office2019Enterprise.xml

    You need a bit of flexibility here, anyway it should work. Just want to make sure that you have the right edition, which edition did you buy? If it is not Pro Plus, comment below and I will get you a new code, if it is Pro Plus, then you are all good.



  2. Humm... Never encountered that, well I guess you need to setup a KMS server, If your are not an organisation admin, close it and try your key.

    If it doesn't work, uninstall office 2019 and completely remove it (see here) the download the deployment tool. Run it and open configuration.xml and replace it with:

     <Add OfficeClientEdition="32" DownloadPath ="http://officecdn.microsoft.com/pr/492350f6-3a01-4f97-b9c0-c7c6ddf67d60">
          <Product ID="ProPlus2019Volume"  PIDKEY="#####-#####-#####-#####-#####" >
             <Language ID="de-de" />

    Change #####-#####-#####-#####-##### to your key and run:

    setup.exe /configure configuration.xml

    The setup should start and it should activate after the setup completes.


    Note: I assume that your edition is Pro Plus. If it is not, change the product ID to your one. I also assume that you prefer it to be in German, if you don't, change the language tag.



  3. @Hermanter Actually, you can download and/or install Office 2019 using the deployment tool and embed your product key into the xml file. Anyway, hope that will work.🙂

    P.S: Just a question, where did you get the volume key from? Are you an organisation administrator? If you are not then your key might come from a warez site.



  4. @Hermanter, are you blind?

    Hi, you don't need to burn it onto DVD, you can simply double click on the .img files to mount it and run the setup. If you want to save it for later use, you can place it on a USB drive or burn it onto a DVD. Regarding how you can activate it, a retail key would be the best, if you have a license key associated with your account, signing using that account. If you want to activate it using a volume key, you'll need a few commands or a Volume License Pack or use a third party converter to convert it to volume edition. For more information, comment below.

    P.S. There might be more editions of office 2019 available in the coming versions of the Windows ISO Downloader and you might have more choices (e.g. Office 365, Office single apps and other products.)

    Just kidding, the Volume License Pack will work!



  5. A few days after I asked him, he did not reply. Not sure if he will allow me to give you the key. Anyway, I have downloaded those files in English and if you want them now, i can give you a link;)

  6. Hi Jan,

    I've got another suggestion:

    Add crash report sender, for example if the downloader shows a blank screen, a blank drop-down or can't connect to the server, the user can choose to collect their system information (Windows version, MSIE version, .NET framework version, List of updates installed and etc.) and sent it to you for debugging.

    do you have the dl for office 2019 pro plus and visio pro and project pro?

    Microsoft do have a rare edition of Office which includes Pro Plus, Visio Pro and Project Pro, it is called Mondo, however that is only for preview (not for final RTM). If you go to *PATH*\Microsoft Office\root\Licenses16, you can see MondoR and MondoVL XrML Digital Licenses. If you want that to be installed, install Pro Plus, Project Pro and Visio Pro, then install the Mondo License you want (NOTE: You cannot activate Mondo editions!).

    If you just want them to be separately installed, use the Office Deployment Tool and here is the code:

      <Add OfficeClientEdition="32" DownloadPath ="http://officecdn.microsoft.com/pr/492350f6-3a01-4f97-b9c0-c7c6ddf67d60">
        <Product ID="ProPlus2019Retail">
          <Language ID="MatchOS" />
        <Product ID="ProjectPro2019Retail">
          <Language ID="MatchOS" />
        <Product ID="VisioPro2019Retail">
          <Language ID="MatchOS" />

  8. Hi everyone,

    I figured out a way to get Program Manager from Windows 3.x and Windows NT 3.X running again on Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 (32 Bit and 64 Bit).

    Here is what you will need to do:

    1. Download Program Manager here: https://mega.nz/#!dMsTRKBI!4wDzRrvNlhOGfkOOeUzKJY6zjazrKxs7aVFBY3GAUdY

    2.     a) Extract and copy it to %SystemRoot%\System32 for 32 Bit Windows.

            b) Extract and copy it to BOTH %SystemRoot%\System32 and %SystemRoot%\SysWOW64 for 64 Bit Windows.

    3. Download the wrapper files here: https://mega.nz/#!NUsh1CqB!1EbQggvisxpUysb_BxWrOfqEBlRPPVv3HuLd3E7GGuQ

    4.    a) Extract and copy all the files to %SystemRoot%\System32 for 32 Bit Windows.

           b) Extract and copy all the files to BOTH %SystemRoot%\System32 and %SystemRoot%\SysWOW64 for 64 Bit Windows.

    5. [RECOMMENDED] Download Additional apps such as File Manager, Paint Brush, Clock and Classic Control Panel from here: https://mega.nz/#!BU0nnCiR!AGb-uxT0CZxinbS7xwVd2iKeZXoTPPCjSsKNiTguqg4


          a) Extract the files and copy to %SystemRoot%\System32 for 32 Bit Windows.

          b) Extract the files and copy to BOTH %SystemRoot%\System32 and %SystemRoot%\SysWOW64 for 64 Bit Windows.

    7. Launch %SystemRoot%\System32\progman.exe

    8. DONE!


    A few points:

    1. This apps will display icons of 16 Bit apps which is better than Windows Explorer.

    2. This app sadly has limitations on the compatibility with 64 Bit apps and icons of 64 Bit apps won't show. To solve this problem, make a batch file like this:

    @echo off
    start *PATH TO PROGRAM*

    and add the batch file to your program group. After that to get the icon back, use Resource Hacker or any other tools to extract the icon and put it in the same folder as your batch file. Click on "Change Icon" and choose the .ico file then tick "Run Minimized" so the command window doesn't pop up.

    3. It is possible to add Microsoft Store Apps to Program Manager, but very hard (if you'd like to know, reply below).

    4. For 64 Bit edition of Windows, when ever you add a program, the best way is to use a batch file, so it makes sure that your program works. If you tries to put any apps the your System32 folder, place it in the SysWOW64 as well, so it will show up.

    5. For 64 Bit edition of Windows, %ProgramFiles% in Program Manager means %SystemDrive%\Program Files (x86) instead of %SystemDrive%\Program Files.

    6. To set this as your default shell, open Registry Editor, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon and change the value of "Shell" from Explorer.exe to Progman.exe  Note: Backup your registry before you start editing!


    [Below]: Program Manager running on Windows 8 Consumer Preview (32 Bit)


    [Below]: Program Manager running on Windows 10 Home 1809 (64 Bit)




    More Coming Soon...

    one thing is the dl for wrp.dll was bad,

    Hi, for the link of wrp.dll, there were some copyright issues, so I took it down.

    also, what do you use to create the iso file and how do you make it bootable?

    I would suggest using CDIMAGE 2.53 - CD-ROM and DVD-ROM Premastering Utility by Microsoft. That is the tool which Microsoft uses to create CDs, DVDs and ISOs.

    Here is the command for creating Windows 8 images if you never used it before:

    CDIMAGE -b"*PATH*\boot\etfsboot.com" -h -u2 -m -o -l"HRM_CCSA_X64FRE_EN-US_DV5" -t"07/26/2012,18:23:07" "*PATH*" "*PATH*\Win8_Pro_English_x64.iso"

    *PATH* is the path of your project and normally setup.exe is inside that directory.



  10. Hi Nirav, you are the first person to be interested in my project. Do you want to create an ISO file with the windows 7 shell integrated or just replace your VM's Windows 8 shell with the Windows 7 one? Anyway, they are basically the same thing, you will have to download the windows 7 ISO file from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows7 or using the Windows ISO Downloader (Edition doesn't matter but architecture and language does) . After its done, find install.wim , go to your Windows 8 edition, find .\Windows\explorer.exe, .\Windows\en-us\shell32.dll.mui, .\Windows\en-us\explorer.exe.mui and copy them into a spare folder. The next step is to download Windows Explorer Wrapper file (wrp.dll) from here: https://tinyurl.com/ycc7okgw and place it with explorer.exe, now you have all files collected and you can replace the Windows 8 ones with those files and restart Windows Explorer. If you wanted to integrate it into an ISO, it would be extremely hard as its nearly impossible to find or download Windows 8 Disk Images from Microsoft, so go to torrents, warez websites and other places to find a copy then VERIFY the checksum to make sure it hasn't been modified. Then mount install.wim, replace files and unmount the wim file. Test your ISO file to be sure that is working.

    This is very brief and if you don't under anything, comment below.
