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?

Click on 16.27 link (download/install) & Click on Serializer Link (download/install). Turn off or delete MS Auto update.

thanks for the guidance people, and I have another query. After installing the office 2019 in mac can I sign in to my Gmail account?
signing into MS Office will become a concern?
