@OlivierSG-3351

Could you please tell us which version of Office 2019 do you want to register?
Such as volumn licensed Office Professional Plus 2019, retail Office Home&Business 2019, or others.

For volumn licensed version of Office, we could use the command to active Office.
Such as for 64 bit Office 2019, the command is cscript.exe "%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office16\ospp.vbs" /inpkey:XXXXX".
But we could not use command to register or bind a Microsoft account to one Office.
Besides, even if we do not log in to Microsoft accounts, we can still use the activated volume license version of Office 2019 normally.

For retail Office, we need to redeem a new purchase first via going to www.office.com/setup or Microsoft365.com/setup manually, and then sign in with a correct Microsoft account to bind this license.
But this step we do not use command line.
In addition, if we reinstall Office later, we could activate Office via logging into licensed account without a product key.

If there is more than 25 copies of retail Office for work, that you want to use command line to improve work efficiency, Microsoft generally recommends you to purchase a volume-licensed version of Office or Microsoft 365 subscriptions .

Hope the information could be helpful.

Thanks for your explaination, but based on my knowledge, the conventional process requires the user manually redeem the Office key on the web page that I provided above.
More information, please refer to "Where to enter your Office product key“.
Thanks for your understanding.

The following is an idea, that enter the key when you install Office Home&Business 2019 via using ODT and configuration file with the key, and to install an older version. But I haven't passed the test to verify it, as I said before, the normal process is to manually bind the account to Office license, besides, I have no such key to test for you.

If this is also ineffective, there is no better way for the time being.
Thanks for your understanding.

The configuration file could be as following.

<Configuration>

<Add OfficeClientEdition="64" Version="16.0.13530.20316">

<Product ID="HomeBusiness2019Retail" PIDKEY="XXXXX --- XXXXX">

<Language ID="en-us" />

</Product>

</Add>

</Configuration>

For more versions of Office 2019, please refer to "Retail versions of Office 2016 C2R and Office 2019".
For the details of installation process, please checkout "Install Office 2019 by using the Office Deployment Tool".
