    Windows is asking me to activate after purchasing Windows 10 Pro online.


    I've had a paid licence for Windows 10 for a couple of years now and yesterday I decided to buy Windows 10 Pro through the app store. I purchased it, got an email, Windows 10 Pro installed, I believe, and now am getting the Active Windows watermark.

    There also does not seem to be a way to get through to a customer service representative unless I call a number. I live outside the states.

    :)

    Windows 10 Activation (Insider)

    I bought Windows 7 Pro OEM key from G2Play.net for 12€ to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro - worked like a charm but be advised if you buy a OEM key you can not download the Win 7 iso from microsoft and have to get it elsewhere.

    How long did you wait for activation?
    When I re-installed with a fresh install... it took a few hours to sync and activate.
    However, it did, finally, activate.
