For all the people facing licence issue, I face the same. I was doing one particular mistake. Don't click on the link Official Link - Office 2019 Volume License 16.27.0
this will download the 16.80.0 which is not compatible with the serializer. Instead go to https://macadmins.software/ and download the 16.27.0 version , install it and then run the serializer. It will work fine.
Thanks

Thank you @NawamArora , I used your reference and it worked well. Here is the link to 16.27.0 version

THANK YOU

Guys, I was facing the same issue as you guys highlighted. However, I did a search for all the files that start with "com.microsoft" in my system using command line and I found around 150 such files which were created due to one reason or the another. Ofcourse, there will be some genuine microsoft applications that you may use on a regular basic (ignore all such files). For example, I use VS code and I ignore all those files. I deleted all of them manually and it took me around 20 to 30 minutes. I restarted my system and TADAAAAA IT WORKED.

You can guys can try and the same let me know what happens.

You have to install the application before the serializer.

I have tried this but it won't work on my Mac Air M1 Sonoma 14.4. I have downloaded Office from here before but it stopped working. Then I reset my Office to get rid of any remaining data that could hinder downloading again.
Here's what I did:
First, I download both the Office and serializer. After that, I turn off my network connection and install Office first, then the serializer. Then I run Microsoft Word to check but it asks me to sign in. What steps did I do wrong?
