    My most extreme example is my Insider build test VM, which has been upgraded to almost* every single build ever leaked/released, starting from old Win8.1 source. Still alive and kicking.


    *almost, because some builds did not run on AMD CPUs, so I *had* to skip those

    sorry. latest version of license switcher doesn't seem to work with Win8.1 as I tried to switch editions from ProWMC to Pro on one computer.
    but it did work on another PC using Win10 when switching from Win10 Pro to Win10 education.

    seems to be win10 only

    Depends on the used mode ;). Apparently the new License Switch between the virtual editions only works on windows 10. Up/Downgrade should work on both.

    Didn't see the post.

    Should be possible using the mounted 1803 ISO directly. If that doesn't allow to keep your stuff, try Up/Downgrade Mode of the tool with same ISO.

    Would be better to ask MS :D. I don't know why that route is permitted.

    It never ceases to amaze me that people won't bother to read the original post in a thread at the very least before asking questions.

    Thanks!

    Where is the inserted license key from after switching editions?

    Also, why am I getting a trojan detection from windows security when I try to run it a second time after reboot? (Win32/Cloxer.D!cl)

    The inserted key is as always stored encrypted in registry. To read out use a key checker. The tool will also show the complete key which is installed.

    Detection is due to the AHK to EXE compile. Most AVs do not like it that much and tend to flag as suspicious. In that case a heuristic false-positive.

    Have no 8.1 Enterprise to test :g:. Did you try the Up/Downgrade path using an Enterprise ISO? There seems to be no any-time-like upgrade path in 8.1.
