Installing Office Professional Plus Medialess without an Account

I have purchased an Office 2019 Professional Plus with a pen drive containing the setup.
Can I install and activate it without creating a Microsoft Account?
Do I need an account for this Office?

    Hi @Nelio R C Abreu ,
    Welcome to Q&A forum!

    As far as I know, Office Professional Plus 2019 is usually a volume licensed version of Office. It generally uses KMS or MAK activation methods, neither of which requires the creation of a Microsoft account.
    For more information, please refer to: Overview of volume activation of Office.
    For deploying and installing volume version of Office 2019: Deploy Office 2019 (for IT Pros)

    In addition, if you purchased a retail version of Office 2019, such as Office Professional 2019, to protect the personal rights of users and prevent the leakage of product keys, it is recommended that you redeem the product key with the Microsoft account so that you can install or reinstall Office without a product key later.
    For more information: Where to enter your Office product key.

    Hope the information is helpful to you.
