    Cannot activate Windows 10 Pro after purchase through the Microsoft Store


    My desktop has been running Windows 10 Home since 2018. Today, I decided to update to Windows 10 Pro. I purchased a copy through the Microsoft Store, and I have received an email receipt. This purchase apparently doesn't come with a Product Key. Rather, it is only supposed to be activated with a digital license according to the following help article:https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/upgrade-windows-10-home-to-windows-10-pro-ef34d520-e73f-3198-c525-d1a218cc2818I am logged in as an administrator using the same account that was used to purchase the Windows 10 Pro license.

  2. Windows 10 Activation - Purchased thru Microsoft Store

    I purchased Windows 10 Pro thru the microsoft store in july. It was working great.

    A recent windows update caused windows to think its Windows 10 Enterprise - which fails activation.

    Since I purchased thru store I don't have a product key to paste in the Activation Window (found in steps to fix documentation).

    I cannot get in touch of anyone at Microsoft for less than $499 (Business support no thanks).

    When I open the store it says - your not using a valid version of enterprise ( this is super annoying ).. When I goto the windows professional store page - it says "upgrade to legit windows 10 enterprise" (no thanks)... I really just want this nightmare
    to end and have the windows I bought. (Windows 10 Professional)

    But seem to be in endless documentation / Activation / other random that leads in circles..

    Thanks
