Deactivate! Deactivate! Windows 10 will be deactivated!

The Amazon Alexa app is now available on Windows 10 PCs through the official Microsoft Store.

In an updated advisory, Microsoft writes under the Windows 10 known issues:After installing this update, some users can not set Win32 program defaults for certain app and file type combinations using the Open with... command or Settings Apps Default apps.

All of a sudden after years of having this key which was from windows 8 pro then migrated to windows 10 for free, I got a notification saying my key is Windows 10 home version and that I need to install it.

"We're working to restore product activations for the limited number of affected Windows 10 Pro customers", a Microsoft statement obtained by Mary Jo Foley notes. Apparently there is something wonky going on with Microsoft's activation servers. And Microsoft fixed the problem by the end of the day. For customers that have deployed Pro in their work environments, this is creating headaches with unnecessary support tickets from users who suddenly think they may now be using a pirated version of the software.

Microsoft has just released an Emerging issue announcement about current activation issue related to Pro edition recently.

Microsoft is aware of what it says is an "ongoing issue" and said that users who are affected by it don't need to do anything. But don't worry, it was an issue with Microsoft servers, not your copy of Windows. 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.

If you are facing the issue, you can resolve it using the Activation troubleshooter, located in the Windows settings, under the Update and Security.
