Microsoft Identifies Windows 10 Pro Activation Rollback Issue, Promises Quick Fix

Microsoft Identifies Windows 10 Pro Activation Rollback Issue, Promises Quick Fix”

Some users said they had contacted Microsoft support and were told incorrectly they needed to repurchase licenses or somehow obtain new product keys.

A bug-free Windows 10 October Update still seems to be far away, and Windows users have already come up with another issue. But don't panic, your license is still good. This included both Windows Insider testers and those builds released to mainstream users (including some users with the Windows 10 October 2018 update/1809).

Microsoft is aware of this situation and has released a statement explaining the issue.

So, in the event your license got deactivated on its own, just leave it as is and your PC should automatically get activated as soon as Microsoft fixes the activation server issue.

For those eager to see their licence restored, users affected by the bug have suggested that the Windows 10 Activation Troubleshooter can restore full functionality now the issue with the activation server has been restored. The voice assistant was previously available on only select Windows 10 laptops, but starting today, you'll see it officially in the Microsoft Store for everyone. And for some users, that's all it takes to get the license squared away.

Having Alexa on the PC gives users access to thousands of her capabilities, such as controlling smart home devices, asking questions, setting timers and alarms, managing calendars and more through a tap-to-talk interface.

There are thousands of posts from upset users on Reddit today regarding the issue.

Following the creation of a number of support threads and social media comments, Microsoft has confirmed the flaw and addressed - though without explanation, beyond a separate claim of a 'temporary issue with Microsoft's activation server' - its cause.
