Windows 10 Pro goes Home as Microsoft fires up downgrade server

Windows 10 Pro goes Home as Microsoft fires up downgrade server

Earlier this week, some Windows 10 users reported that they were unable to select certain apps as their default choices.

Amazon released the Alexa app for Windows 10 today, which lets you operate the Alexa voice assistant with your voice or keyboard from a PC. Some users who have Windows 10 Pro installed report getting a notification telling them their Windows license is no good, even though it's valid and has been working correctly for months or years. The affected users need not to do anything as it is a known issue. This happens in Japan, Korea, American and many other countries.I am very sorry to inform you that there is a temporary issue with Microsoft's activation server at the moment and some customers might experience this issue where Windows is displayed as not activated.

To the relief of the bruised Insider team (but no one else), it soon became apparent that the issue is not just isolated to those courageous souls trying out preview code, but over many versions of Windows 10.

Jeff Jones, Sr. Director, Microsoft says: "A limited number of customers experienced an activation issue that our engineers have now addressed". Current support statements indicate Microsoft is expecting to release the fix in a day or two.

Just like an Amazon Echo, Alexa can control smart home devices, tell you the weather, crack jokes, and answer general knowledge questions. But don't worry, it was an issue with Microsoft servers, not your copy of Windows.

Redmond, we have a problem.

However, some users are also reporting issues with fresh installs.

As for what you should do right now? This week, build 18277 is rolling out for Insiders in the Fast ring, featuring yet more minor changes and bug fixes for users to test and give feedback.
