Prerequisites

Office 2019 requires:

  • Semi-Annual Channel Release of Windows 10 in support or

  • Long-Term Servicing Channel of Windows 10 Enterprise 2018

  • Windows Server 2019 (required for RDS Services)

Customers using older versions of the Windows or MacOS operating systems are not able to use Office 2019. 

Modern Deployment Technology Click-to-Run

With Office 2019, Microsoft is moving the perpetual versions of Office to Click-to-Run exclusively so customers can benefit from modern deployment technology to reduce costs and improve security.  The advantages include predictable monthly security updates, up-to-date apps on installation, reduced network consumption through Windows 10 download optimization technology, and an easy upgrade path to Office 365 ProPlus. It offers the same enterprise-focused management capabilities as MSI-based products and also supports an in-place upgrade when moving to Microsoft Office 2019 from older MSI-based products.
