    First you should install the KMS key of "Windows Server 2016 Remote Server".
    Second you should active this Windows copy.
    Both can be done in "Microsoft Toolkit 2.6.4" which is the last version. Anything later than 2.6.4 are fake.

    Sorry, since I have been on the KMS boat since Vista I did not aware that you were talking about an MAK key.

    Read the image I posted carefully. It says RETAIL not VOLUME_MAK. I would be immediately banned for posting information about MAK keys.
    The key can be found in product.ini file.

    I believe you can install pro and use the keys to do the switch to serverrdsh.

    To enable the admin account after I had already installed, I used a Rufus made Windows to Go drive to access the serverrdsh install, ran regedit as trusted installer and mounted it's SAM hive and enabled the administrator account via the registry.

    I used my AutoUnattend.xml which I normally use to deploy virtual machines.
    You can always install Enterprise and simply do license switch and effect will be the same.

    OK, I just installed this "Windows 10 Enterprise for Virtual Desktops" version 1903 in a VM and I must say I like what I see so far. It seems quite the replacement for a full-blown Server machine that you install user applications on and let the users RDP into. I'm not sure on the theoretical or hard limit on concurrent users but I've done three so far with no hiccup.

    The initial startup was weird, the local Administrator logs on automatically, but from there once I joined it to my domain it seems no different. It seems basically Windows Enterprise but with enough of Server enabled to have multiple concurrent users and I'm not sure yet what else.

    Is there any official word on this from Microsoft, what it's for and who the intended audience is? I sure would be interested in acquiring this legally for my corporate use, but I have so far found nothing at all, save a couple of speculative articles from various tech blogs.
