    How do I replace a product key for the same product ordered?


    I bought Microsoft for Windows 10 for my daughter.via a third party (enaba.com). I entered the product key when requested...only afterwards realised that she was signed in her Windows Store login so wouldn't match up with the product key in my account. I think this is the reason the game only loads in free trial mode??

    So I decided to order the product again to get a new product key and uninstalled the game from the laptop. I made sure the Windows Store sign-in was my account by the time I entered the new product code. However, Microsoft tells me that I already have the product and won't accept the new product key - just keeps the old one.

    Does anyone know how i can replace a product key for the same product so that Windows Store will let my daughter play the full game version that I have paid for TWICE?!

    :)

      and hit Enter.
