    No product key after upgrading from Windows 10 Home to Pro for Workstations


    I have Windows 10 Home that I bought from the Windows store and have no problems. Once I bought it it included the key to activate.


    I then purchased an upgrade through the Windows Store for Windows 10 Pro for Workstations and I was not given a key. Both versions show paid receipts under my account. Am I missing something here?? Why am I not able to access a key for what I bought?

    :)

  2. Upgrade Windows 10 Pro to Windows 10 Pro for Workstations


    This guide is telling us to enter a valid product key but there are no Windows 10 Pro for Workstation product keys that you can purchase from the store not from Microsoft's website so where can I buy one or an upgrade key from my Windows 10 Pro to Pro for Workstations?

    It's just listed the once as Windows 10 Professional for Workstations on my Visual Studio Windows 10 Business ISO. And I only have the one set of Product Codes for Pro for Workstations. I've run it, can't remeber if I've even clean installed it though?

  4. No product key after upgrading from Windows 10 Home to Pro for Workstations

    how to install and download the new windows 10 pro workstation


    You can't select Windows Pro Workstation on a clean install, its not listed as an install option. Not unless things have changed since I downloaded the Media Creation Tool ISO on the 17th.
    And as far as I know Pro Keys won't work for Pro Workstation. If they would, Microsoft wouldn't have given me new Pro Workstation keys. I have a two separate lists of keys for Pro and Pro Workstation.
    I did option one in the tutorial listed above, Upgrade Windows 10 Pro to Windows 10 Pro for Workstations
