Using MAP Keys for Prior Versions of Office Pro Plus

Is there a way to use some of the Office 2019 Pro Plus keys to install prior versions? We need to support an application developed in Access (VBA) compiles against not only the laster version (Office 365 / Access 2019) but also Access 2016 - both the retail C2R release and the volume license MSI release. How can we obtain an installation package for Access 2016 (or Office 2016 Pro Plus) volume license MST release, either .exe or an ISO image? Is there a runtime only install for Access 2016 MSI corresponding to the volume license MSI release? 


The reason we need the prior versions is that when an Access application is compiled, it must run against the release it was complied against. In other words, our application complied against Office 365 / Access 2019 will not run where Access 2016 C2R (retail) or Access 2016 MSI (volume license)
