    It does all by official msft resources, nothing gets installed.

    To get tru WS X64 do i need to still do the Wim with WES? or can i just re-download 1809 and choose Workstation on install?

    Thank for your help

    I was about to sign off, but ProfWS is an official sku, you can find it in both, the 1809 consumer and business iso, this tool offers all:

    ok maybe I was reading the last 30 pages last but I think I found the ISO from the link above. Now i still need to see how to active it. Is there a walk through on how to do it step by step?

    @Enthousiast When I upgraded my Pro to Pro for WS through MS Store I didn't get a product key and my machine said activated via digital license. I then sold my laptop and bought a new one but the upgrade that I bought was gone from my Store account and when I search for Windows 10 Pro for Workstations, it just prompts me to buy the upgrade again for that new laptop.

    I tried to get a refund but that was in vain.

    Anyway, this time with my new Alienware laptop, I didn't want to do the same mistake so I went ahead and bought the full Windows 10 Pro for Workstation (not an upgrade) through the online Microsoft Store and what do you know, this time they sent me an actual product key unlike before. Just wanted to share this with y'all that they do send you a product key if you buy the full version and not an upgrade.

    That was when you still were phoenix, isn't it? Can remember a few people telling that you didn't need to buy (any) windows:thinking:

    The one you bought in the store should still work too, it should be linked to the MSA you bought it with.

    Correct about the Phoenix part but negative on the linked to MSA part. The whole purchase disappeared from my store account as if I never bought it. I tried PayPal to file a claim but then Microsoft won the case as they showed PayPal that they did in fact deliver the product to me (on the old computer).

    Anyway, so glad I got an actual key this time.

    Does anyone have the Pro-WS build range 16251 <> 16288? It's not available on UUP anymore.

    I tried searching and none of the links work. They were either to pages that no longer exist or sites that linked to files that had no seed. I tried searching both terms.
