    Bought a new PC and I'm trying to active my digital license.


    I had Windows 7 a few years back (I still have the activation key for it) and I used the free upgrade to Windows 10 which I associated with my Microsoft account. Now I bought a new PC, installed Windows and logged in on my account but it doesn't activate Windows. It gives me an error: 0xC004F213


    I already clicked on troubleshooting many times but it doesn't work. I contacted Microsoft with their virtual agents but they couldn't help me either. What else can I do besides calling them?

    :)

    Transferring Digital License to new PC

    Hello,

    I have been trying to activate Windows 10 on my new computer using the digital license I have connected to my Microsoft account. I bought Windows 10 Pro digitally from Microsoft a few years ago and have been running it on my laptop since. My new desktop is
    meant to replace my laptop. Following some guides online, I started the Activation Troubleshooter and clicked on "I changed hardware on this device recently." It opens a list of devices that I'm signed in on so I can choose which one to activate. My new desktop
    PC doesn't show up in that list though.

    I finished installing Windows on my new PC last night, so I'm not sure if some kind of activation servers need time to update the list of devices my Microsoft account is running on. But I guess this is why I'm posting this question here.

    Just to be clear, I will be using my desktop as my main PC, which I want Windows activated on. My laptop is just going into storage or something, so the account should be deactivated on it.

  3. Transfer digital license from old PC to New one.

    You would have to first ensure the Digital License is linked to your Microsoft Account. See instructions how to do that. You can then use the Troubleshooter on the new computer after installing Windows 10 to restore the license.


    Please note, if your license was upgraded from a OEM preinstalled Windows 7 or Windows 7 license, it is not transferable.
