    Activation errors using digital license.


    I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 when the free offer was first extended.

    About a month ago I started receiving an activation error saying my windows 10 is not activated.

    When clicking on the activate now link the settings window opens and the activation screen is blank.

    The links are still there, if I scroll over the page with the cursor, but the links are not visible.

    The troubleshoot page is also blank. Why can't Microsoft just post how to fix this problem?

    This is really frustrating because I can't personalize my computer without activating first.

    Clearly this is an update issue...something in one of the updates installed about a month or two ago caused this.

    So now what?

    :)

    Thats how licensing works with Windows 10, the digital license is attached to your Microsoft Account and makes it easy to reactivate Windows 10 in the event you reinstall it.

    Windows 10 Digital License

    When you upgraded from a previous version of Windows or receive a new computer preinstalled with Windows 10, what happened is the hardware (your PC) will get a digital entitlement, where a unique signature of the computer will be stored on Microsoft
    Activation Servers. The Windows 7 or Windows 8 genuine license you were previously running will be exchanged for a diagnostics key.

    Anytime you need to reinstall Windows 10 on that machine, just proceed to reinstall Windows 10. It will automatically reactivate. You will prompted to enter a product key a couple times through the installation, click I don't have
    a key and Do this later.

    There is no need to know or get a new key, but if you have issues with Digital Licensing or the Activation Troubleshooter, you can utilize an existing Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 product key you already own to
    reactivate if necessary. or use the reset function in Windows 10.
