Did your Windows 10 just deactivate? Microsoft confirms Windows 10 Activation issue

Then join our Team!

I had also heard from from one user who said he received erroneous activation messages about his Windows Server 2016 licenses, as well as from users who said they were unable to buy an upgrade from Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro today.

Yesterday, many Windows 10 Pro users started seeing erroneous activation issues. Thing is, going to the Store apparently has no effect.

Having Alexa on the PC gives users access to thousands of her capabilities, such as controlling smart home devices, asking questions, setting timers and alarms, managing calendars and more through a tap-to-talk interface. However, reports emerged later of similar problems on PCs that had only ever run Windows 10.

Employees who organized last week's demonstrations estimated that 20,000 workers participated across Alphabet offices in five continents.

This sudden license change is not just from Pro to Home. But don't worry, it was an issue with Microsoft servers, not your copy of Windows. This issue does not appear to be isolated and is impacting a significant number of users.

According to posts about this bug on Reddit and the Microsoft forums, someone had contacted Microsoft via their support chat and was told that Microsoft is aware and are working on the bug. This happens in Japan, Korea, American and many other countries.I am very sorry to inform you that there is a temporary issue with Microsoft's activation server at the moment and some customers might experience this issue where Windows is displayed as not activated.

It's not clear if the activation issue is somehow related to the October 2018 Update, only that the timing roughly coincides with its release and rollback. If needed, you can try your luck with Microsoft Support to see if they can issue a replacement Pro key but it shouldn't take long before Microsoft corrects the error.

The image above, from user FaiKee on Twitter, shows the issue that some users are facing with the activation of their install.
