Is your Windows 10 Pro deactivated after activation?
Microsoft Windows continues to be reported by people for a variety of issues, which are reported day by day due to a variety of hardware configurations, some Microsoft side glitches etc. For the issues, some of the issues are on small scale and some on large scale. Some affect the users not much, some do have a big impact like activation.
Today we are talking about an issue that is widely reported by users on the Internet about Microsoft Windows. Users are reporting their Windows 10 is suddenly showing deactivated. When the user runs the troubleshooter, he is probably told you have a valid license of Windows 10 Home but you are running Windows 10 Pro, like this:
While I wasn’t aware of this until the afternoon, upon asking other experts I was informed that this is a known issue as one user contacted the chat support who was told the following:
Microsoft has just released an Emerging issue announcement about current activation issue related to Pro edition recently. 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.
Our engineers are working tirelessly to resolve this issue and it is expected to be corrected within one to two business days
So if you are affected by this bug, you need not to worry. Just wait for a day or two and it would eventually activate. Consider subscribing to the thread where the information would be updated.
