Microsoft Bug is Deactivating Windows 10 Pro Licenses and Downgrading to Home

Recommended Posts

Cheers Hazel, 

I do like the statement that-

"our engineers are working tirelessly to resolve this issue."

Is that an admission that the wheels have come off?

We don't have a post rating system here dbarajas.

We just all try to help each other :)

EDIT..

Hot off the press.. apparently Microsoft says they have fixed it, this bit is supposed to be working correctly now

Go to Settings (via Action center > All settings or Windows key + i)
Navigate to Update & Security > Activation
Click the link for the troubleshooter

We are saved !!! (until the next issue/bug:lol:)

No. They make overly complex closed-source bug ridden software & OSes that's obviously a chore for them to bug fix and patch security holes in -- and we're the test subjects, and we pay for it as the OS price is baked into a new PC price.
