    Ok, thanks for the link / info. Reading that it kind of makes me think my Visual Studio Subscription Office 2016 Pro Plus "discontinued" keys are for Office Pro Plus, and the new keys are for Office 365 Pro Plus? I'd have to reinstall from the web with one of the new keys to actually see what's what. Not sure I want to bother at the moment. Will try and wait and see how I end up having to install Office 2019. Curiosity might get the better of me though.

    Under info for the new office listing on My Visual Studio it states.

    To obtain the product, follow these steps:

    Step 1: Get your product key by clicking the ‘Get key’ button on the right.

    Step 2: Go to the Office website by clicking the ‘Get it now’ button.

    Step 3: Enter your 25-character product key and continue as directed on the site.

    And for the discontinued it states.

    I'm thinking option one is going to be my only option. I'm fine with that as long as I can get Outlook to work with my ISP's pop3 e-mail. Last time I tried that with the new 2016 install I could not get it to work, no way no how. All the same settings that work with the ISO install?

    EDIT: I should mention, for me as far as I know, neither of these options are a subscription. They use two different keys but they are perpetual one time activation licenses. I only ran the new download briefly though, as I could not get outlook to work. I bailed and went back to what works.
