    Hi there!

    I remember a thread in this forum that enabled me to use a provided (list) of special keys for win 7 upgrades.
    It was an Anytime Upgrade Key for Windows 7 Home Premium to Pro or Ultimate. Easy, no hassles!
    Ran a small command line check to see if it would work and I went for it.

    Now, can the same type of procedure be used for Win 10 Home to Pro, without the use of KMS or a new load?
    If so, where would that be?

    TIA!

    Maybe there is a bit of confusion here, my bad...

    I want to go from W10 Home To W10 Pro using an activation key, like what was done for W7.
    I already know about the KMS (activator) way and I could do that.

    Is there a resource here that can get it done for 1 one W10 Home to Pro conversion, just by the key?

    Thanks again!

    Great!

    Now how do I do this:

    "With win 7 you could use the keys.ini keys from Windows Loader to anytime upgrade to a higher sku."

    How would I find that file on my W7 ultimate system?

    Thanks! :)

    SLP keys are not recognised by the activation server... Win 7 had local activation so could do the activation upgrade...WAT changed significantly since then. Online activation is necessary... ie. Retail/MAK - if not KMS.
