< How did you install Office Professional Plus 2019?
The installation method of Office Professional Plus 2016 is MSI, which requires users to download the installation package from VLSC for deployment and installation.
The installation method of Office Professional Plus 2019 is C2R, which generally uses the Office Deployment Tool(ODT) for deployment and installation.
For more information, please refer to: Deploy Office 2019 (for IT Pros).

However, their activation methods are similar. Both can be activated using KMS or MAK.
For more information, please refer to: Overview of volume activation of Office.

Hope the information could help you.

As the article "Deploy Office 2019 (for IT Pros)" that Viki provided in first reply says, "The installation files for Office 2019 are available on the Office Content Delivery Network (CDN) on the internet instead of on the Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC). "
So there is no MSI method to install or deploy volume licensed versions of Office 2019. You could get the key for volume licensed versions of Office 2019 from VLSC.

Thanks for your understanding.
