  1. Windows Product Keys


    I have Windows 10 preinstalled. I have found my Product key. If I try to activate windows with it, It Tells me that it is not valid. Can I not use my product key to activate other versions of windows? Do I have to buy a new key?

    :)

  2. Convert a Windows 8pro product key to a Windows 10pro produkt key

    Hi Andre,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft community.

    I suggest you to Uninstall the license using the following steps.

    • Press Windows key + X
    • Click Command Prompt (Admin)
    • At the command prompt, type: slmgr.vbs -upk
    • Press Enter, this will uninstall the product key from the computer.
    Further on, install Windows 8.1 activate the copy with the product key on the new machine. Then again upgrade the same to Windows 10 using Window Update or Media Creation Tool.

    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
