    The Unity Soft - Very Cheap Genuine Microsoft Windows & Office Licences - 25% Off

    I've recommended TheUnitySoft.com several times here for cheap, genuine MS licences. A heads-up that there's now (from 25 to 30 Nov) an additional 25% off using the code: BF2020 at checkout.

    I've just bought Office 2019 from them for a standalone licence, That's what you need.

    £17.24 all in, lifetime purchase

    It's £199.99 on the microsoft homepage and stupid Office 365 is £5.99/month FOR EVER

    Office 2019 is sold out
    Is there much difference between Office 2019 and Office 2016?

    Office 2019 Pro version is still available and at around £20 is still good value IMHO.

    Just bought Office 2019 Pro and with the 25% off it came to a few pence over £20.00.

    Thanks for the heads up OP. Very much appreciated.

    My recommendation would be to buy Office 2016 Professional Plus for $30 (-25%) so $22.50 - bargain.

    The Office 2019 Professional Plus is still showing as available at $34.99 and I would always recommend this version over the standard. Your call of course but at $26.24 it's a bargain.

    Office 2019 Professional for me.
    Struggling switching off the focused inbox in outlook though
    Much more to Outlook than the free version

    Are these OEM licences? Do you get any paperwork or just a code?

  14. #14
    Activation code by email. That's it, but good support. I had one that didn't work a few years ago, they responded to email in 5 mins and sent out another code.
    I have years of happy code activation with them. They just don't seem hooky.

    I've never paid more than £3.99 a month for office365 Home - I just stack them when they come up on offer.

    For me the benefit is the 1tb of storage per user, the apps are an aside - at 60p per user per month - it's a bargain for me.

    They do seem hooky, a US address, UK Ts and Cs (cut and paste job) and a domain registered to a German clothes company, website hosted in the US. However, for home use, if the OEM licence works then it works. It's a grey area and widely exploited. Although, I wouldn't like to be a business that got audited having used these codes.

    Got a Win10 Pro Update which worked out just under £16. Handy to have access to the bitlocker features.

    Out of interest, why?

    Mine came up with an initial error but then activated as it went through the restart process. HTH.

    Because itís not within the terms of the OEM licence. So thereís a nice corporate entity to pursue for losses. Neither is home use really, in the way these are sold anyway. Meant to be sold with a new device if they are indeed OEM licences. But whether anyone cares about single users is another matter?

    This is driving me mad. Their solution is to download in chrome incognito. This still won't work on my home pc but did at work. So downloaded onto a memory stick and started setup at home but now get a read error. I used this lot for a windows licence a while back and it was fine. This is quite a battle.
    I'll try a couple of downloads tomorrow and see if one of them works. Is it possible the RAR file I am downloading is corrupt?

    Downloaded Office Home on my office computer no problems at all and works a treat. Do need it on my laptop too, but notice itís 1 PC only, so Iíll stick with Office 2010 which is no longer supported.

    I had an issue with the install, it was my machine at fault not their code.

    They sent me to the website that had a program to uninstall any MS Office stuff on my machine, did that and went through the process again and it worked.

    I spoke to the tech guy on the chat feature and he guided me through it - worth a shot if you have already.

    When using this site can you download the office software from Microsoft site or do you have to use the download link they give you?

    You download an iso file of Office from their own site, and follow their installation instructions, and the Microsoft registration procedure.

    Noted. I did buy a license from them but we could not get it working. Think we had downloaded from a different link. Not sure it should make a difference.

    What could possibly be wrong, following a convoluted installation process including having download the office suite from a 3rd parties site seems fine to me...

    I bought the MS Office 2019 Pro version for my son's laptop - the download is an ISO and install and license worked faultlessly. Following install we also downloaded/installed the latest updates direct from MS.

    You do need to uninstall any MS Office versions you may already have, prior to installation (and restart) just to make it cleaner.

    So finally got it sorted but I have downloaded the 1.8gb file bout 25 times in 2 different places to get there! Tech were helpful but I think it was more luck than anything else that I finally got it downloaded. On adsl that takes a while to do and I can't help feeling that the broadband isn't stable enough for the whole period to do it reliably. Probably completely different on fibre but I don't have that option.
    But I do now have the whole office suite for £20 so that is worth the hassle now it's done.

    It appears to create an account with Microsoft and is tagged to whatever e-mail address you register under. When you install on a new machine - you should use the existing e-mail account. Anything you have stored on its cloud facility - becomes accessible to the new machine
